Paper Trading Latency

Hello Alpaca -

I’m testing my algorithms using the V2 API set while paper-trading. I’ve noticed that there is latency in getting market orders filled at the beginning of the regular session. After awhile (10-15 minutes, maybe?), market orders fill as i would expect them to. Is this expected behavior with paper-trading? Does this sort of latency happen in live trading as well?


Hi Matt,

I can’t confirm that behavior. See my example video TradingView to Alpaca Trading Bot Implementation - YouTube
