I have some questions regarding how Alpaca handles stock Dividends. It would be very helpful if someone could answer these questions.
I’m designing some trading algorithms and I need to know some questions.
- When a stock pays dividends, how the dividends are transfered to alpaca account?
are they added directly to the account balance or they add to stock price?
- is there any REST endpoint for getting stock future dividend payouts?
waiting for your answers!
