Now one needs to place an order through the POST method. But this can be very slow because a new http connection has to be established from scratch. Is it possible that alpaca can support placing orders though websocket or other binary protocols that keeps the connection so that the latency can be much smaller.
Though I also hope that there can be binary protocols for real-time market data, I dare not expect it, because I know this requires a lot of work.
Hope the opinion can be considered.
