TradeStation® Celebrates 40 Years of Innovation
PLANTATION, Fla. (Jan. 4, 2023) – TradeStation Group, Inc. (TradeStation), which through its operating subsidiaries provides award-winning*, self-clearing online brokerage services for trading stocks, ETFs, options, futures and cryptocurrencies, is celebrating its 40th anniversary as an innovative fintech company known for its reliable, multi-asset trading platform. Founded in 1982, TradeStation aims to offer the ultimate trading experience.
TradeStation, which started as a software development company in South Florida in 1982, has built a strong reputation as an award-winning provider of trading tools and platforms for active traders, self-directed investors, and institutions. The company has been a trusted resource throughout its four-decade history, with its growth driven by offering innovative new products and insightful educational content designed to help sophisticated traders.
“TradeStation has successfully navigated the past 40 years by putting traders first and constantly evolving with the financial markets to bring solutions to our customers,” said John Bartleman, President and CEO of TradeStation Group, Inc. “Guiding this firm and our customers has been a privilege, and we look forward to many more decades of supporting traders as they navigate through all types of market events.”
In addition to offering its platforms and API technology for customers to buy, sell and trade stocks and ETFs, TradeStation also offers advanced platforms and tools for customers who want to speculate on price fluctuations by trading derivative products like commodity futures and options. TradeStation has witnessed a significant uptick in futures and options volume in 2022, which it attributes to the trading opportunities created by ongoing market volatility. Over the past several years, TradeStation was an early adopter of CME Group’s innovative products, including Micro Treasury Yield Futures, Micro Crude Oil Contracts, Ether Futures, Micro E-mini, Futures, Gold, Natural Gas, and more.
The company launched TradeStation Crypto in 2019 to provide its customers access to the cryptocurrency markets. In a world of heightened uncertainty and evolving crypto regulation, TradeStation Crypto considers the safety of its customers’ crypto assets to be of utmost importance. TradeStation Crypto uses hot, warm, and cold wallet solutions provided by a third-party custodian combined with TradeStation Crypto’s operational controls, risk management and cybersecurity practices to manage assets between hot/warm and cold storage.
TradeStation is also committed to making a positive impact in its community through philanthropic initiatives and its efforts to advance financial literacy and inclusion. In 2022, the company donated $50,000 to Miami Dade College Foundation, Inc. in support of Miami Dade College’s Student Managed Investment Fund, giving students access to TradeStation’s educational and investing resources. The company sponsors local organizations and community events, such as the Pierre Toussaint Leadership and Learning Center and the Black Professional Network’s Juneteenth Freedom Ball.
