Yesterday I noticed I had a problem with Alpaca’s paper trading account.
I was unable to close any positions via the API or the UI.
I had short position against TSLA and whether I try to close via the API, or on the UI via the “Liquidate all posittions” button, or simply buy back the number of shares I originally sold short. None of it works, the orders don’t fill.
I will have to change broker if I can’t fix it on my paper trading account.
Was I doing something wrong, or was this a glitch? I fixed it eventually by resetting my paper trading account, but obviously this is not something that is possible if I was live trading. Any help on this matter please is welcomed!
