❗Important Notice

We want to inform Alpaca traders that starting tomorrow (Thursday, November 24th, 2022), we will be rejecting securities orders that are under 1 USD in notional value for quantity-based fractional orders.

Why is this change happening?
This change is being implemented to ensure an equitable trading experience across the platform; by enforcing a min 1 USD notional amount, we believe we can continue offering a seamless trading experience while ensuring orders meet minimum requirements.

If you have any questions regarding this change, please reach out to us at support@alpaca.markets.
