“We are excited about our partnership with NorthPoint Trading Partners, LLC. NorthPoint offers a premier trading and Prime Brokerage platform geared toward small and mid-sized hedge funds. The majority of their clients are focused on long/short equities and equity options. One of the ways they distinguish themselves from other service providers is to offer high-touch, low cost services and analytic tools. Trade-Ideas is a great compliment to the Redi-PLUS platform provided by Goldman Sachs Execution and Clearing (GSEC) due, in part, to its ability to link directly to existing charts and order entry windows in Redi-PLUS,” said David Aferiat, Managing Partner of Trade Ideas LLC.

Trade-Ideas provides access to detailed information on more then 10,000 stocks, ETFs, indices, and future contracts on all the North American exchanges. For a free demonstration of Trade-Ideas, please contact a NorthPoint Trading Partners representative.
