NEW YORK, Feb. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Trading Ticket, Inc., a maker of innovative financial tools including mobile trading technology Trade It™, today launched the first real-time account aggregator available to retail investors and revealed provocative details of investor behavior based on the first six months of Trade It use. Separately, the company announced integration with the popular, free real-time charting components from TradingView.
Trade It now reaches more than 100 million retail investors each month. Among the behaviors being seen by the company:
- A full 88% of orders using Trade It are placed on mobile devices – with the majority being on Apple iOS.
- Average order size is $11,000 and climbing.
- More than $275 million in orders have been placed in its first six months.
"It's possible we're seeing retail investors move quickly through mobile-first to become a mobile-only market," said Nathan Richardson, co-founder and CEO of Trading Ticket. "We've had intense traction with mobile users. They're looking for technology that gives them choice and control. They need to make fast, confident trades from anywhere so they never miss an opportunity."
Trade It's real-time account aggregation – called Portfolio View – is a first for retail investors. The feature shows users information from all an investor's accounts, including specific holdings, buying power, and even shares owned no matter which broker they use. Paired with Trade It's real-time stock quotes, Portfolio View eliminates the need to move to separate mobile apps or Web sites to determine details of a trade. And because Portfolio View is integrated with the Trade It trading ticket, orders can be placed immediately.
Using Trade It is simple, fast and secure. Clicking on a company name, ticker symbol, special short URL or TradingView chart produces an order ticket through which a brokerage account is accessed and an order is placed. The company announced its initial Trade It technologies, led by its proprietary pop-up trading ticket, last September. Forthcoming elements will span account opening, funding, order management and communication. The entire Trade It suite uses 256-bit encryption to place orders and user information is never stored.
