We are very excited about formally entering the UK market with the acquisition of Mercor Index and look forward to working with the team to grow their existing business and establish TigerWit as a leader in retail broking not only in the UK, but globally. The team’s wealth of experience in the online trading industry will assist us in expanding our operations and services, as well as most importantly, providing our clients with the option of trading under a FCA regulated provider,” said Summer Xu, Founder of TigerWit Group.

With the platform’s ‘Strategy Builder’ clients can back-test and then forward-test trading strategies via a demo trading account before implementing them into the live markets. These strategies can be tested and executed without the requirement of programming any complex coding languages.

Simon Denham, founder of Mercor Index said, “This is an exciting moment for both TimeToTrade and TigerWit. In the past few years we have built a significant database of traders that use our platform with its fully integrated alerting, strategy builder and chart trading functions.
