Guiding this firm and our customers has been a privilege, and we look forward to many more decades of supporting traders as they navigate through all types of market events.”

TradeStation witnessed uptick in futures and options volume in 2022

TradeStation offers advanced platforms and tools for customers who want to speculate on price fluctuations by trading derivative products like commodity futures and options.

TradeStation has witnessed a significant uptick in futures and options volume in 2022, which it attributes to the trading opportunities created by ongoing market volatility.

TradeStation also provides platforms and API technology for customers to buy, sell and trade stocks and ETFs.

The 40-year-old fintech firm is also involved in philanthropic initiatives to advance financial literacy and inclusion. In 2022, the company donated $50,000 to Miami Dade College Foundation, Inc. in support of Miami Dade College’s Student Managed Investment Fund, giving students access to TradeStation’s educational and investing resources.

The company sponsors local organizations and community events, such as the Pierre Toussaint Leadership and Learning Center and the Black Professional Network’s Juneteenth Freedom Ball.
