Wasatch Trading Partners, LLC., and Mission Viejo, CA based ALTAVEST Worldwide Trading, Inc.

Additionally, using its own web-based proprietary trading platform, FuturesANIMAL also provides its members with the ability to apply what they have learned with real-time trade execution. Some of its member benefits include:
- Educational curriculum built by market experts around futures and futures options trading, delivered via live virtual classes, on-demand recordings and live seminars throughout the country.
- Real-time access to the futures market via a proprietary trading platform.
- Ability to pursue a “Self-Directed” or “Managed” account.
- Assignment of their own personal broker at no additional cost.
- The ability to structure complex multi-leg strategies on one order ticket and execute at one price and as one unit with just a few mouse clicks.
- A proprietary risk management analyzer with an automated exit plan.
- Access to our daily Animal Trades selected by our proprietary algorithm.
“We are truly excited about the opportunity before us. And, not simply for our own benefit as a company, but for the benefit of the retail trader,” stated Travis McGhee, CEO of FuturesANIMAL. “With the turmoil the financial markets have experienced during the past 5 years, more and more individuals are seeking access to alternative products that will provide them with the ability to diversify their holdings and effectively manage risk. By leveraging the futures industry experience that a firm like ALTAVEST provides, we aim to not only educate our members, but also offer first-class access to a market that has remained foreign to many retail traders.”
FuturesANIMAL will serve both self-directed investors, as well as those that are looking for more assistance with their investment decisions. Along with ALTAVEST’S experienced team of dedicated brokers, FuturesANIMAL provides world-class service to all traders in the community, whether novice or more advanced in their trading experience.
