Portfolios / Sub-accounts

Yes, positions are aggregated: e.g. if you buy 100 shares of ABC and a week later buy another 200 shares of ABC, Alpaca shows that your account is long 300 shares.

If these two purchases belong to two different trading strategies, you could tag each order with labels representing their respective trading strategy, and use a portfolio management app to analyze the evolution of the PL of each strategy by filtering by label (see above post).

+1 to this… $25k per account no problem.

I was wondering if there was any update on this?

I’m able to push orders with unique identifiers with “client_order_id=”

However, once it is converted into a position I’m not sure how to retrieve the order ID. How are people keeping their different strategy trades separated once they become a position?
