Tastytrade Launches Brokerage to Make Trading Easier for DIY Traders
Built In Chicago | Jan 3
Do-it-yourself traders have a new way of doing business with the launch of tastyworks, a new brokerage firm from the team at tastytrade. The brokerage combines the methodology the tastytrade teaches in its daily content with technology that makes that kind of trading easy — all at a price that matches those strategies. The brokerage was built from the ground up to help take advantage of the company’s “trade small, trade often” philosophy. Not only can traders access tastytrade content right from the platform, but they can also follow tastytrade traders to see where they’re investing — alongside explanations for why they’re putting their money there. In addition to co-CEO Kristi Ross, tastyworks' development also comes from tastytrade co-CEO Tom Sosnoff and CTO Linwood Ma, in addition to new tastyworks CEO Scott Sheridan. If that team sounds familiar, it’s because they were all together back at thinkorswim before it was acquired by TD Ameritrade.
