New York (PRWEB) December 14, 2006
MicrocapTrade, Inc., a leading provider of microcap market data and analytics for professional and retail traders, today announced it has added coverage of approximately 1000 NASDAQ microcap stocks to MicrocapFeed Individual, a streaming real-time market data and analytics platform for the microcap markets.
MicrocapFeed Individual is the only market data platform built entirely for microcap and nanocap stock trading. By expanding coverage to include all NASDAQ stocks priced $5 or less, MicrocapFeed Individual will provide greater breadth of coverage for this sector than any other provider on the market today.
"For investors interested in capturing the potentially high returns that are possible in the microcap markets, MicrocapFeed provides the same high-quality data, news and analytics that professional traders have used for years," said Stephan Touizer, CEO of MicrocapTrade. "Since our inception over five years ago, we've remained committed to providing more visibility into the microcap markets, and to improving the decision-making tools available to individual and professional traders."
With the launch of MicrocapFeed Individual in 2003, the microcap markets have become significantly more transparent, allowing individual investors to apply sophisticated analysis to what has traditionally been an insiders' market.
New Graphical User Interface
MicrocapTrade has also upgraded its graphical user interface (GUI) to enhance clients' user experience and make it easier to find and use the firm's complex analytical functionality. An example of the benefits of the new GUI can be found in the firm's streaming filters. In the past, the firm's streaming filters were on a single page showing all of the filtering options available on the MicrocapFeed platform. Now, there are three levels that clients can choose from, allowing them to select the level of complexity that they would like to use. Novice clients can chose a basic level of filtration, while more sophisticated and directed investors can go to a more granular level.
"The old way was intimidating," Mr. Touizer added. "In the past, when we built new functionality, we fitted it into the original schema of our product. With the new interface, which we've re-built from the bottom up, our clients will have significantly more options available to them to easily find and use the functionality they need. The result is a more efficient interface that is easier to navigate and is more user-friendly."
The new interface has been applied to all of the features available on MicrocapFeed Individual, unlocking much of the powerful functionality that exists only on this platform.
Expanded Charts and Fundamental Data
MicrocapTrade has also enhanced its charting capability and fundamentals information. New charts available on MicrocapFeed include candlestick, line and bar charts, and technical indicator overlays including moving averages, Bollinger Bands, relative strength index, MACD, momentum and stochastics.
For clients who need to conduct due diligence or more sophisticated investment analysis on any NASDAQ, OTC:BB, or Pinksheet company, MicrocapTrade's fundamentals have been expanded to include: business summary, company address, officers, transfer agent, shares outstanding, market capitalization, share structure, institutional holdings, insider holdings, short positions, and quarterly and annual financials.
The inclusion of all NASDAQ microcap stocks is included in the existing subscription price for MicrocapFeed Individual. To learn more about MicrocapTrade and its products, please visit http://www.microcaptrade.com.
