NEW YORK, Nov. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- StockTwits Inc, the largest social platform for investors and traders, launched MoneyBadger.com today, a new content site created for new and casual investors. StockTwits is well known in the retail investing and trading communities as the definitive social platform for discussing intraday market activity, with more than 200 messages posted each minute across 7,500 individual stocks and tickers.
"Every day, our social streams are full of fascinating stories of companies and stocks as told by market participants, but those stories aren't necessarily accessible or useful in their current form to the average person," said StockTwits CEO Ian Rosen. "Many financial news sites provide information on markets or investing, but Money Badger is the first to bring the incredibly interesting world of the trading floor, seen through the eyes of traders rather than media, to the public- and to relate that world to people's own daily lives and goals."
Money Badger will relate intraday market stories, provide basic investing education, and bring the stories that live in the daily StockTwits streams to life for the occasional investor or those new to trading.
"Whether it's a crazy ride for a company whose mobile phones have a newly discovered habit of exploding, or the basics of how a bond works- as a publication, Money Badger's purpose is to help those who've never invested to learn the basics of the market, to buy their first shares of stock, and to become engaged with the fascinating market stories that evolve each day," said Scott Steinhardt, Editor. "We make business news easily digestible and relatable, with an added touch of savvy and humor."
StockTwits, founded in 2008, is the largest social platform for investors and traders, and also the host of events such as Stocktoberfest held annually in Coronado, CA, and more than 150 other events annually in 37 cities.
