I am new into algo-trading and currently trying to find the best API for stocks so I’ve taken interest in Alpaca.
I am currently under DACA meaning I have a US SSN, I am a US person per IRS guidelines, I have a work permit, I hold a job in the US legally, and I pay my taxes. Because of the how technically DACA works I am not however a US citizen, US permanent resident, or hold a visa. It is just essentially a valid work permit (politics…).
I am able to open brokerage accounts with several brokers and I am legally allowed to trade stocks. Currently setting one up with Interactive Brokers as a backup. But under my status it is difficult to get pass some account setups due to both being a US person per IRS purposes, but still lacking any of the previously mentioned documents as it is the case with Alpaca.
Is there a way for me to set up an account? Or am I just out of luck unless Alpaca opens up to an international market?
