“We set out in 2014 to offer a seamless, simplified approach to futures trading for active traders, representing a fundamental shift in the way business is done. We’ve introduced next generation, cloud-based technology so clients can trade with high-quality execution from any device. Typically commissions represent over half the total cost of a trade. Through our flat-rate, commission-free membership structure, we’re giving traders the ability to control and greatly reduce their transactional costs.”
Ryan Hansen, Tradovate President, said:
“Self-directed traders want easy-to-use trading platforms that offer terrific functionality, speed and reliability. We have not only those critical features, but cloud-based technology that provides the ability to trade on demand from anywhere – on a mobile phone, tablet, laptop or desktop – 24/7, without any platform fees. As futures trading is all about transparent markets, it’s time for a new model in the futures space that brings transparency to the relationship and makes the brokerage firm the client’s partner.”
