Margin & Short Selling

We are currently working on supporting margin trading and short selling. These features and more will initially be available only as part of a new account plan designed specifically for high-volume algorithmic traders. This new account plan is not for everyone and may require certain conditions of your trading activity. Currently this program is only open to eligible U.S. residents. If you think this may be for you, please complete this form and we’ll contact you.

Suggestions or questions?
We're always happy to hear from you. You can contribute to these docs on GitHub, or you can join our Community Slack to get help from other community members and the Alpaca team.
