Tradier Brokerage Inc., a leading brokerage service company, announced today a partnership with backtesting and trading strategy platform Key2Options to allow investors to conduct commission-free trading in the stock markets.
Key2Options joined forces with Tradier to make trading more accessible by offering investors the ability to execute unlimited amounts of free stocks and options trades seamlessly from Key2Options.
Given Key2Options’s goal of democratizing and unbundling traditional trading, the company’s quantitative modeling offering makes it simple for people with no programming experience to test various theories and strategies using historical options data. This was typically only available to large institutions or people with vast computer programming experience.
Commenting on the news, Ashok Yarlagadda, CEO of Key2Options, said: “Key2Options was started on the basis of two fundamental beliefs. We wanted to create Simplicity and Value. We have a simple trader friendly platform that lets trader’s backtest and create trading strategies without programming and remove emotion from trade execution. This integration creates unparalleled value for our traders as they do not have to worry about trade commissions.”

For Tradier, the addition of Key2Options adds to the growing list of developers who have integrated with its brokerage API to enable trading on its platform.
Tradier may be lesser known in the forex trader community as it currently only provides stock and options trading. It also depends on its brokerage API product that can be integrated by third parties, with client onboarding and execution provided by Tradier, while offering limited technology to its direct clients.
“We are happy that innovative companies like Key2Options are able create great investor products and disrupt the self-directed financial services market. We are excited to power Key2Options and be a part of their growth story,” said Stephen Ehrlich, CEO of Tradier Inc.
