By Tradier Post on Mar 21, 2019 at 9:39:16 AM

Better (1)

Why Tradier has been a better choice to build a global investment platform.  

 

API Focused Business Model: Tradier was built with an “API First” focus. The company’s goal is to power other products that deliver value and innovation to Investors. Unlike traditional brokers who offer competing products that conflict with its API partners, Tradier encourages investor to subscribe to its connected platforms.

 

Complete Stock and Options API: The Tradier API includes following

1)    Account Opening to build your own fully custom onboarding

2)    Account Funding

3)    Balances and Positions

4)    Activity and History

5)    Statements and Confirms

6)    Equity Trading types across all US-listed securities

7)    Single and Multi-Leg Options Trading

8)    Real-time Data

 

 

Digital Advisory API (Robo Advisors): Tradier offers a unique set of new account opening, funding and brokerage API’s that are suited for Advisors who want to offer a unique and differentiating product to the market.

 

Rest based Approach: The Tradier API is secure and built to fully support HTTP and tested to function effectively across browsers, mobile operating systems and IOT devices. If you are building a Trading platform, Robo Advisor, Social, Mobile or a Web experience,

 

 

Performance Tuned: Tradier API calls are tested, tuned and used by actual traders and developers. Tradier is constantly looking at the responsive times of all our large and innovative companies using the Tradier API and has constantly made the Tradier API better.

 

Sandbox or Virtual Trading or Paper Trading : Tradier offers a Virtual Trading and Delayed market data API so that you can test a strategy with virtual money. You can use the Data API’s to build innovative products and also can offer virtual accounts to your customers. This is a great way to get new users to try your product quickly. Tradier’s Virtual Trading API supports Equity and Options Trading. This is another differentiator from Interactive Brokers.

 

Cost: Tradier does not charge for API usage. Tradier makes money like any typical brokerage. Commissions are structured so that customers are not paying large commissions and are able to keep these costs to a minimum.

 

Account Minimums: Tradier does not have account minimums for accounts. IB requires a 10K minimum.

 

Onboarding: Tradier supports International (Non-US) accounts. Tradier also collaborates with you to understand your product and help you navigate it through regulatory complexities.

 

Developer Focus: It’s built by developers, for developers. Tradier is one of the largest and widely used Fintech API in the market.

 

It’s about a partnership: Tradier strongly believes in co-innovation. Tradier works as an extension of your build process and we will be there to support you in technology, compliance, and launch.

 

Competing with you: Tradier is a B2B focused firm whose main goal is to support you on your growth journey. Unlike other brokers, Tradier does not have a combined B2B - B2C focus because they do not want to compete with their clients and partners who have a B2C focus.

 

Support: Tradier developers supports all aspects of the API and are available for you as your build and grow your platform.

How Tradier Tapped Developers to serve Active Traders’ Needs

The plight of active traders today

    The saying “one size fits all, really does not fit at all” can be best applied to the online stock trader market.  More than 90% of total retail trading volume in the US stock market comes from active traders’ investors - individuals who trade more than 3 times a month. Most Active Traders are in a relentless pursuit to gain an edge in the market. What makes a trader better is a better set of trading tools, better community and better content.

    Every trader is different. Every trader thinks and comprehends the market differently. Every trader consumes trading insights differently and ultimately buys and sells differently. The sheer diversity of trader needs poses a massive challenge for existing broker apps that are unable to deliver choice that the active trader needs. Traders have traditionally looked at online brokers to offer them a fitting trading platform but with no answer. Despite Active Traders, being the primary source of revenue for brokers, they have been mostly underserved

 Today’s brokers have no answer

    The legacy boxed brokers like Interactive Brokers, TD, E*Trade, Charles Schwab and Fidelity generally service a broader population, with a single one-size and price fits all offering. Providing the same experience for an occasional trader and someone who trades 30 times a month trader is impossible. A few incumbents like Robinhood today (and Zecco earlier) have spent hundreds of millions to attract young customers by offering “freemium” commission plans to their mobile apps.

    Despite massive technological advancement, brokers have failed to deliver on the customization and value that traders need. particularly those that invest frequently. Traditional brokers continue to think, operate and offer vertical myopic products. Brokers continue to flood the market with confusing price discounts when the most active segment are demanding quality and edge, and just not price.

Developers have the answer

    Tradier was built with primary mission of reclaiming trading from the legacy brokers and opening it up to developers and thousands of other products that need access to capital markets. Tradier built its own proprietary, multi-tenant trading technology that opens the brokerage capabilities that were locked inside brokerage firms and translates them into simple APIs that any developer can adopt.

    Due to the pressing and growing demand from active traders for differentiating products, innovators and developers have used to Tradier API to build and offer an extensive list of applications. Using the API’s, Trading, that was locked within the four walls of the legacy brokers became accessible for everyone to innovate. Any developer or firm can now offer enable trading through Tradier rapidly. You can now build an Active Trading platform or a Digital Advisor (Robo) instantly without having to worry about massive operations, infrastructure and huge capital. What used to take 2 years can now be done in weeks or months.

    Today, Tradier has over 100 plus connected platforms that are providing services to active traders and investors globally. Tradier connects platforms that offer a superior active trading experience at a pace of innovation that is unmatched by the incumbent brokers. Tradier fields tens of Millions of API calls, processing millions of shares and option contracts from partners and developers and has become default way to launch Trading products in the market.

The Tradier model falls in line with Stripe and Twilio, who have also adopted a “API Strategy of Enablement” to power as value ecosystem.

 Tradier is a pioneered large ecosystem of platforms that empower active traders with dynamic choice, personalized trading interfaces and speed that investors deserve. The financial markets are fast becoming an open, vibrant, and diverse ecosystem and Tradier has been crucial in leading the charge to unbundle them.

Did more, used less, and accomplished our way to growth
By Tradier Post on Feb 11, 2019 at 9:05:11 AM

On 4th year of launching our API product, I wanted to congratulate the Tradier Team and thank our clients Today, Tradier has over 150 connected firms as clients, processing millions of executions, contracts and shares.  We started with a core belief that by taking the legacy burdensome vertical called “Brokerage” and unbundle it into a set of easily adaptable microservices, this will have an unleashing effect on the market.  The idea that one can build take an API business in a highly regulated and closed industry, in order to change the way we invest, did not happen instantly. Over the last 4 years, we have learned how to build and operate an API business, enable a growing ecosystem with innovative products, evangelize and most importantly price our products right.  We don’t believe in giving away something for free when that costs. We refused to be measured by how much money we raised.  Today we have achieved scale by comparatively using little capital, doing more, proving our model and bootstrapping to today’s scale and growth.  At our core, both communication, accountability and "doing the right thing" have been key to the company’s progress, from early build, prototyping, launch, to full commercialization.
