IRA Accounts Please God

Please for the love of all that is holy, introduce support for retirement accounts. Alpaca will immediately drown in a landslide of cash if they do this. If there are insurmountable barriers to this part of the industry, please enlighten me, because they would have to be gargantuan to willfully pass up on the ridiculous amount of money they would inevitably receive. Thanks for any info!

Anything? Please? This must have crossed someone’s mind.

Yes, this is an excellent idea. A no brainer.
There is no way I am going to remove substantial amounts of cash from IRA or Roth just to trade on Alpaca without the tax benefits. It can never be undone.
I, for one, would be a PDT with more than the minimum balance.
Is anyone listening at Alpaca?

does anyone at Alpaca review and respond to posts on here?
I can’t find any.
If they won’t support IRA funds then I need to move on to other services.

Hello @bubuia and @Eagletop

Alpaca does not currently support IRA accounts however we are aware of the interest and it is noted.

Also Roth, even more than IRA.

Jason,
Thank you for the response. It is good to know that Alpaca is aware of the massive amount of investment money that they are missing out on.
Over 95% of my investible funds are tied up in retirement accounts.
In a little over a year, I will be 59 and a half and any amount of those funds that I want could be used for investment in Alpaca accounts.
At this point, 30% could be used for investment if you had IRA account options.

I am not unusual. Many people are looking for a place that can handle their IRA funds with the investment options that Alpaca offers.
Thank you again.
