i am using the GitHub - alpacahq/alpaca-trade-api-python: Python client for Alpaca's trade API repo and have now tested my strategies with some automatic python scripts.
…Works fine for now…
But I want only to invest 1% for each trade.
My Balance is for example 5000 USD and now I can not trade the amazon symbol because, the price of this stock is 2524 USD, so i have only balance to buy around 2 stocks from Amazon.
When I am trading (with Alpaca) within Tradingview, when I edit my RISK field to 1%, I will only loose 50 USD. So the leverage effect here is in there of course…
How can I use this great thing also with Alpaca (by using the Alpaca API instead of Alpaca Tradingview)
Can anyone help me out here?
Thx for your help.
