Aries trading app integrates tradestation data and execution services
Aries users who are also TradeStation brokerage clients will benefit from the premier data and order execution service while continuing to have access to Aries. TradeStation is the first broker login for Aries.
Aries, a brand new investment and trading app, has integrated TradeStation for its data and fulfillment services by making its application available to international customers.
“Built by traders for traders to bridge the gap between retail investing and Wall Street,” the firm claims, Aries aims for the ideal of democratizing trading.
The trading app has been built around the needs of the community and the clients and has developed tools that aggregate information into an easily digestible format for retail investors.
From an execution perspective, Aries reached out to TradeStation to ensure users have a premium experience. Through web API integration, traders can trade in stocks and stock options without commission through their TradeStation brokerage accounts while using the Aries platform.
Using social media trends, Aries makes it easy to share thoughts, research and chat online. The neobroker is harnessing the mature market mindset and operational history of TradeStation Group to accelerate its expansion.
John Bartleman, President of TradeStation Group, commented, “Retail continues to experience tremendous growth, and TradeStation has long sought to simplify the user trading experience for our clients and to deliver new offerings. Aries shares our belief that trading should be accessible to all and puts the focus first on the needs of investors and traders. It is a platform designed by traders for traders, and we are excited to launch this integration which allows us to offer our clients additional analytical tools from Aries. “
Reda Falih, CEO of Aries, said: “With the rapid growth of online investing and retailing, we wanted to develop a streamlined suite of tools that will help bridge the gap between retail investing and Wall Street. Our powerful analytics platform is only enhanced by TradeStation’s efficient processes and procedures, customer service, and ease of execution, creating a truly user-centric experience.
It was at the end of 2019 that TradeStation joined the list of companies reducing commissions to zero for the trading of certain assets. The online trading company has started offering commission-free exchanges to clients who use its web and mobile platforms for publicly traded stocks, options, and exchange-traded funds (ETFs).
It was around this time that other big brokers, such as TD Ameritrade and Charles Schwab, said they were removing commissions for trading stocks, options and publicly traded ETFs.
