API for Stock Margin Requirement

Hi guys,

It would be wonderful if Alpaca can provide the margin requirements for a stock. For example, TQQQ requires a 100% margin and this totally impacts your day buying power.

Thanks,
Luca

It has this in the document but doesn’t mention 1x ETF, short of ETF, or may be some ETF need 100%. I would like to know a more complete picture as well.

Position Side Condition Margin Requirement
Long share price < $2.50 100% of EOD market value
Long share price >= $2.50 30% of EOD market value
Long 2x Leveraged ETF 60% of EOD market value
Long 3x Leveraged ETF 90% of EOD market value
Short share price < $5.00 Greater of $2.50/share or 100%
Short share price >= $5.00 Greater of $5.00/share or 30%
