Multi-asset class and multi-connectivity trading platform AgenaTrader is launching a brand new social trading solution. The firm is focusing its attention on a unique aspect of the trading decision making process. A web-based social trader network is combined with a conferencing environment, to enable the creation of virtual trading rooms across the world.
The platform, which can be connected to different brokers at the same time, supports trading in stocks, futures, forex and CFDs. The firm is already working on integrating options trading into the product.
The major advantage of AgenaTrader is the deeply integrated semi-automated trading approach, which involves tools for drag and drop signals and strategy programming, risk definition, and an extremely powerful scanner which allows the possibility to scan for signals in over 1000 symbols.
Starting strategies on scanner signal – ‘one click strategy trading’ – completes the toolset and enables extremely fast decisions whilst AgenaTrader automatically calculates entry, stop and target levels in combination with pre-calculated order sizes.
Innovative Trader Network
The company has considered several aspects of online trading for retail investors. Being mostly a lonely endeavor, and one of the reasons behind trading failure, AgenaTrader is focusing on the social trading aspect. The company is launching www.TradersYard.com, which is ostensibly an innovative open social trader network. It will be accessible to everyone.
Within TradersYard, traders can find other traders with similar trading styles, with the ability to group each other, share information and analysis. TradersYard goes much further than the standard functions of forums.
Traders can create public, protected and private groups where the owners can decide who will be able to participate – just like a social network function.
TradersYard+ Conferencing System
The real added value of TradersYard is TradersYard+ with the integration of a conferencing environment, which is encrypted and controlled by Include IT/AgenaTrader. In addition to the posting and chat possibilities of the TradersYard web platform, the conferencing environment offers audio/video/desktop streaming.
This enables the possibility for traders to build virtual trader offices across the world, irrespective of using the AgenaTrader platform. TradersYard and TradersYard+ can be used by anyone, whether interested or active in the financial markets or not.
In such virtual offices, traders can meet each other face to face and share their ideas, analysis, and even trades. Traders who own AgenaTrader have options available for trade sharing, copy trading, and other social trading concepts.
The TradersYard Group concept provides the capabilities to open prop trading rooms or to visually organize face to face communication for trading departments of institutional organizations.
“The combination of a social network with a conferencing platform is absolutely unique in the market and opens up incredible possibilities,” says Gilbert Kreuzthaler, CEO of Include IT/AgenaTrader.
“The current experiences are proof, that most Traders are not ‘lone wolves’. It shows, that traders are heavily looking to socialize with other market fighters.”
AgenaTrader´s partners comprising of educators, mentors, and brokers, can utilize the TradersYard ecosystem for educational services to a highly targeted audience. TradersYard will support these partners to reach the user and create a win/win situation for partners and traders.
Traders need a broker and as AgenaTrader is an advanced trading platform the company can refer traders to their broker partners. The whole concept can also be white labeled by brokers or investment houses. If such a company wants to set up their own social platform, conferencing system and also provide AgenaTrader to their customers, either the whole package or single components can be offered to their customer base.
Gilbert Kreuzthaler further mentioned: “In our beta launch we have experienced that users find this concept extremely helpful and love the idea and functionality capabilities. It’s exciting to hear that they can find each other via the social Web-platform, share trading ideas, analysis, start visually meeting each other within their virtual trading offices and even send trades into their groups.
This can be commented or picked up by their colleagues. Personal relationships are being built within this platform, taking users out of their loneliness, which becomes an added value for them.
I’m very sure that TradersYard will have a deep impact in the trading industry and be massively used by retail traders, Prop and Institutional trading firms.”
Kreuzthaler will reveal AgenaTrader’s new platform at the Finance Magnates London Summit next week.
