In looking around for an algo trading platform that offers a Node.js client, I stumbled upon Alpaca.
Before I get to actual trading via Alpaca, I am interested in writing some programs to validate (or not) trading strategies based on various relationships between technical indicators.
Can I do this with Alpaca?
Specifically, can I run such programs against historical market data without (obviously) executing any real trades, and collect the results to see how the relationships perform?
Thank you for your help.
