Rick Steves

In the coming months, the platform will introduce additional subscription services, such as a “Trade of the Week” feature, a morning show focused on opening trades, market hedging strategy sessions, and investment-focused trading LEAPS.

Trade to Close, LLC, a financial media company, announced the launch of its revamped live-streaming stock trading platform, setting its sights on transforming the retail trading landscape. The show, which airs weekdays from 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM Eastern time, aims to offer viewers real-time market insights and trading strategies from seasoned industry experts.

“We are thrilled to launch our new live-streaming platform along with bonus value-added services on the horizon,” said Co-Founder Olivia Voznenko, a five-year on-air financial news personality specialized in volume trading. Mark Sebastian, the co-founder and a member of multiple stock exchanges, emphasized the duo’s synergy, stating, “Voz and I have a great market trading chemistry which is tremendously beneficial to our seasoned and novice subscribers who actively trade the market.”

Traditional trading insights blended with digital media

This next-level streaming platform is backed by a comprehensive library of educational training videos and a 24/7 community forum. It promises not just to stream trading shows but to offer a holistic educational experience, including live chat features during the broadcasts. In the coming months, the platform will introduce additional subscription services, such as a “Trade of the Week” feature, a morning show focused on opening trades, market hedging strategy sessions, and investment-focused trading LEAPS.

The partnership of Voznenko and Sebastian in Trade to Close, LLC adds an interesting dynamic to the retail trading education sector. Voznenko, known for her on-camera prowess and expertise in volume trading, complements Sebastian, a seasoned trader with experience on the floors of the Chicago Board Options Exchange and the American Stock Exchange, and also the Chief Investment Officer at hedge fund Karman Line Capital.

This venture is emblematic of a broader trend in the financial media landscape—traditional trading insights are being blended with digital media to democratize access to financial education. Whether you’re a seasoned investor or a novice, platforms like this aim to level the playing field, providing actionable insights that were once the preserve of Wall Street insiders.

In an era where individual retail investors are becoming a more formidable presence in the financial markets, thanks to the ubiquity of trading apps and online platforms, initiatives like Trade to Close are poised to make a significant impact. They offer not just information, but a sense of community and mentorship that could be a differentiating factor in the success of retail investors.
