Alpaca API data services compared to Polygon.IO

Some quick questions about Alpaca data services, compared to Polygon.IO -

  • Does Alpaca streams and data functions work before and after the regular market hours? Polygon included extended hours data. Is this covered in your new, beta v2 data api?

  • Does Alpaca have a replacement for Polygon’s “ticker” data? api.polygon.all_tickers() was very useful. What can we use now? Please advise.

  • What about company financial and basic information data. Polygon REST has a “company” procedure to provide some basic information. Does Alpaca have data substitutes for financial, fundamental, and basic data?

Thanks very much. Sorry to disturb you.

Regards,

Joe O.
