Anyone have any experience with this platform?

For the past few months I've been working with Alpaca's paper account, comparing results of the exact same strategies running simultaneously with WL Dummy Accounts, and ThinkorSwim, to see if it was acceptable in terms of speed, accuracy and information, and I have found it less that acceptable on all three fronts. I'm not bashing Alpaca, I just don't find the (paper) account to be encoraging if it's representative of the live account.

I came across the Tiblio platform today, and thought I would inquire of anyone else may have had experience with them.

Thoughts appreciated if you have the time.

I'm curious to know something specific that you found discouraging about using the Alpaca Paper account. "Speed, accuracy, and info" are just hanging there without evidence.

Keep in mind that the free tier Alpaca data is IEX sourced, i.e., only 2% of the market volume.
You should not try to compare that for accuracy to historical data - we already know it's not going to be sub par for trading.
