New user here…
I am just setting up my alpaca account. Initial funding showed up over the weekend with 4x margin available.
This morning I check and the margin is gone, my Buying Power equal to my Equity.
Is this normal behavior, or have I triggered/toggled something by mistake?
This is a bug in the paper trade environment which Alpaca is aware of and working to fix. You can reset your account and it should go back to 4x day trading buying power. Sorry about that.
Thanks for the reply, but this is with my real money account, not the paper account.
my paper account has went weird for a few days, is it caused by the bug u mentioned?
everything=0, such as cash/equity/buying power/market value etc…
