Plantation FL, October 28, 2010 – TradeStation Securities, Inc., the award-winning broker-dealer and futures commission merchant, and a leading provider of custom analysis and electronic trading solutions, recently announced the launch of TradeStation 9.0. The company expects that TradeStation 9.0 will reset the bar for trading platforms by empowering customers and developers to automate and test strategies in the equities, options, futures and forex markets unlike anything else currently available. TradeStation 9.0 is now being rolled out to new customers and is expected to be slowly rolled out to all existing TradeStation clients beginning next week.
“Traders in today’s markets demand access to information and the ability to act on it instantly,” said Salomon Sredni, the CEO of TradeStation Group, TradeStation’s parent company. “TradeStation 9.0 really expands the power of our platform. As an example, traders will be able to automatically monitor market depth and be alerted, or even place a trade, the moment the trader’s rule or trigger is met. Traders now may also have TradeStation monitor their open positions and continuously perform risk assessments, so that, in a fast market downturn or upturn, the appropriate action will automatically be executed. Also, traders now have the ability to execute code on a fixed time interval, access to all of the details for their orders and positions, and, on RadarScreen® (TradeStation’s state-of-the-art market scanning engine) access to multiple data streams.”
“TradeStation 9.0 also includes dozens of other popular enhancement requests for EasyLanguage, TradeStation’s industry-standard proprietary programming language,” added John Bartleman, TradeStation’s Vice President of Product Management.
TradeStation 9.0 also has a new look and feel. The company has improved the icons, enhanced some of the graphics and colors, and added a “Quick Start” to help new TradeStation users create an optimal workspace. Plus, TradeStation’s Options Development Team has in TradeStation 9.0 added another set of enhancements to OptionStation, the company’s highly-regarded automated research product for options trading analysis and decision-making.
