PLANTATION, Fla., Nov. 04, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TradeStation, a Monex Group company (Monex Group, Inc. is listed on the first section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange, code: 8698) and an award-winning broker-dealer and futures commission merchant, announced today that it has teamed with qbeats. As a leading content valuation and monetization company, qbeats now offers a new streaming research and news TradingApp through the TradeStation TradingApp® Store, an online marketplace featuring more than 800 TradeStation-compatible indicators, strategies and TradingApps.
The qbeats TradingApp gives TradeStation users real-time access to actionable news, institutional-quality research articles, top-down analysis and more. It delivers comprehensive coverage of futures, forex, equities, and other financial markets, drawing from more than 50 premium research and publishing companies, including Moody’s, Informa Global Markets, the American Petroleum Institute, Elliot Wave International and more.
TradeStation clients can download the qbeats app at no cost from the TradeStation TradingApp Store and launch it directly from the latest version of the company’s award-winning desktop platform. The TradingApp offers a free qbeats account with free trial credit to access premium articles for new qbeats users. TradeStation users can access some free content and purchase premium articles on a pay-per-view basis. This is a much more economical way to access premium news content than subscribing to several premium news sources.
TradeStation users can search the qbeats TradingApp by topic, symbol or company name, or use the symbol link feature to search for information based on trading analysis linked from other TradeStation platform apps, like RadarScreen®, Matrix or Charting, allowing clients to make more informed trading decisions and generate new trading ideas. The news feed allows users to browse top-ranked stories or view a live feed of breaking news.
“Like all traders, TradeStation clients want easier access to premium research and faster delivery of news they can act on,” said Salomon Sredni, CEO of TradeStation Group, Inc. and COO of Monex Group, Inc. “Our clients can now make more knowledgeable trades with this new TradingApp, and we’re pleased to be the first online broker with the trading technology to do so with qbeats.”
