It seems easy to fetch data for a particular stock with the API. In python:
df = api.get_barset('AAPL', 'day', limit=500).df['AAPL']. However, how can I scan for stocks that I want to trade? Simple example: I’d like to get all stocks that gapped up premarket by > 20%.
It seems like for this, Alpaca does not really have a good support yet. Hence, my question:
Is the best way to scan for stocks to directly query the IEX API to find the tickers I want to trade (https://iexcloud.io/financial-data/)?
