TradeStation Crypto has added six coins to its offering, the self-clearing online brokerage announced.

Aave (AAVE), Compound (COMP), Chainlink (LINK), Polygon (MATIC), Maker (MKR), and Shiba Inu (SHIB) are now available for users after a “rigorous selection process, weighing customer demand and market sentiment”.

In addition to the six newly added coins, clients will continue to have access to trade Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), and USD Coin (USDC).

TradeStation Crypto assessing additional coins

James Putra, Vice President, Product Strategy of TradeStation Crypto, said: “We are thrilled to expand the number of coins we support. Each coin was chosen for our platform following a rigorous selection process, weighing customer demand and market sentiment. We are continuing to assess additional coins to further expand our services and serve our clients.”

TradeStation Crypto now boasts 12 cryptos in its offering, available for trading on the broker’s web and mobile applications alongside its suite of API’s that include both REST and FIX API’s.

The digital asset division of TradeStation aggregates multiple pools of liquidity in a consolidated market data feed combined with an intelligent order-routing system designed to give its clients enhanced visibility and trade execution.

Users have access to a capable client services and technical support team as well as educational tools for investors and traders with varying levels of experience.

The US-based crypto platform helps clients own cryptocurrency as an alternative investment in a Self-Directed Individual Retirement Arrangement (IRA), providing flexibility for individuals and investment advisers who aim to achieve greater diversification in their retirement accounts.

FIX API for crypto order execution and real-time market data

It was in January that TradeStation Crypto introduced access to trading crypto via a financial information exchange (FIX API) protocol for crypto traders, investors, institutions, and third parties. Users now can access aggregated liquidity with intelligent order routing designed to seek the best pricing available from connected liquidity sources and fast execution

The FIX API for TradeStation Crypto provides customers with full access to crypto order execution and real-time market data when connecting via the TradeStation Crypto FIX API.

In addition, the protocol improves customer service support for onboarding, integration, and testing, as well as ongoing product support, and provides access to TradeStation’s aggregated liquidity and intelligent order routing algorithm and the ability to transfer large amounts of data as quickly as possible.
