Is the paper api endpoint working?

I’ve tried following the docs and using curl, Python (with requests not the SDK) and Julia and get 404 when hitting some of the paper-api endpoints. I’m able to get my account information but not quote/market data.

I’d like to use Julia but am testing with Curl and python. Not sure what is going wrong.

Thanks in advance,

Julio

With a Curl example (using my own keys) I do:

curl -v -X GET
-H “APCA-API-KEY-ID: {YOUR_API_KEY_ID}”
-H “APCA-API-SECRET-KEY: {YOUR_API_SECRET_KEY}”
https://paper-api.alpaca.markets/v2/stocks/AAPL/bars?timeframe=1Day&start=2021-09-01T00:00:00Z

and get:

The Data API base URL is https://data.alpaca.markets/v2

Thanks. That seemed to work for the quick test I just did.

FWIW The docs say api.alpaca.markets and paper-api.alpaca.markets API v2 - Documentation | Alpaca

These URLs are for Trading API. For Data API both Paper and Live use the same URL .
