Rick Steves

“Whether you’re an experienced trader or just starting out, our Options Trading platform offers an accessible and engaging experience to explore Call and Put Options.”

Stocktwits, the pioneering social platform for investors and traders across various asset classes, including stocks, cryptocurrencies, and emerging investments, is making significant strides in expanding its offerings.

The platform has unveiled options trading and enhanced sentiment data features, adding to its already impressive suite of tools. This move comes at a time when the relationship between sentiment analysis and options trading has reached unprecedented levels.

Users can now directly engage in options trading through Stocktwits, thanks to its wholly-owned subsidiary and SEC-registered Broker-Dealer, ST Invest, LLC.

“Accessible and engaging experience to explore Call and Put Options”

Rishi Khanna, Chief Executive Officer at Stocktwits, said: “We are ecstatic to bring Options Trading to our community. Adding this asset class represents a significant step in our ongoing commitment to providing innovative trading tools and resources to our users. Whether you’re an experienced trader or just starting out, our Options Trading platform offers an accessible and engaging experience to explore Call and Put Options.”

While Stocktwits initially emerged as a platform for discussions about stocks and cryptocurrencies, the decision to incorporate trading features aligns with the surging enthusiasm among retail investors.

The expansion empowers individual investors with a broader range of trading capabilities, enabling them to nurture their investing identity within the Stocktwits ecosystem. With enhanced execution capabilities, real-time data of the highest quality, and deeper insights into sentiments surrounding both stocks and cryptocurrencies, Stocktwits is poised to deliver even more value to its growing user base.

Stocktwits boasts over 8 million registered users on its platform, and in the coming months, the company aims to introduce new tools and data, extend execution functions to additional asset classes, and continue fostering a vibrant and engaged community.

All securities products and services offered through ST Invest, LLC, Member FINRA/SIPC, ensure that users have access to reliable and regulated trading options within the Stocktwits ecosystem.
