Share Article

Trade-Ideas, the real-time decision support tool for improving trades and managing risk, announced today a partnership with A.B. Watley, a service oriented leader in the electronic trading field, which combines the best each has to offer in a powerful, sophisticated trading console. The partnership provides integration between A.B. Watley’s execution platform and Trade-Ideas’ real-time analytics allowing traders to shorten the distance spanning idea, decision and execution to just two clicks. Combining the two products in this way takes time out of set-up or repetitive keystrokes and into valuable decision, evaluation activities.

The partnership allows A.B. Watley to continue to deliver on its reputation of providing leading technology and trader support at the highest level of service and at the lowest possible cost. Gary Mednick, Executive Vice President of Business Development at A.B. Watley explains, “We identified that active traders want systems that generate ideas – we think Trade-Ideas fits this need perfectly based on its real-time capability to identify opportunities and integrate with other charting and execution platforms like RealTick or Ultimate Trader 3 (UT3).”

Trade-Ideas announced that this integration is one of several recent integrations with leading direct access trading platforms (DATP). Currently Trade-Ideas supports RealTick, REDIPlus, InstaQuote, Tradestream Global, and now Ultimate Trader/Omni Pro with the goal of positioning itself as a powerful add-on to direct access trading platforms (DATP). A video demonstrating the combined applications appears at this address:

David Aferiat, director of business development explained the essence of the integration. “Selecting a stock symbol from a Trade-Ideas alert window instantly populates charts, order entry, and any other linked items in A.B.Watley’s trading platform (RealTick or UT3). Two clicks now take an integrated user from idea to execution.” Dan Mirkin, managing partner at Trade-Ideas continued, “This is what we mean by decision support. We add value by serving up opportunities to traders in real time and allowing them to take more time where it counts: making decisions rather than typing in orders. We are delighted to bring this capability to an industry leader like A.B. Watley.”
