tradeMONSTER Launches Integrated Futures

tradeMONSTER, a leading online brokerage that delivers a state-of-the-art trading platform through a uniquely intuitive interface, today announced the addition of futures trading. With its seamless integration into the tradeMONSTER platform alongside stock and options trading, customers can now employ the full range of available tools to obtain risk and performance analysis on an aggregate portfolio, and better manage their trades and investments as a whole.

“If you can’t access and assess your trading strategies and risk from a single screen, you are at competitive disadvantage,” said Aric Forsythe, head of product development at tradeMONSTER Group, tradeMONSTER’s parent company. “With our futures integration, tradeMONSTER customers can easily evaluate the performance and risk of all of their positions, regardless of asset class, and that gives them a major advantage over their peers.”

Dirk Mueller-Ingrand, co-founder & CEO of tradeMONSTER Group, offered, “It’s extremely important for traders to manage risk in a consolidated fashion. For those who haven’t traded futures in the past, this provides a great opportunity to consider adding futures to their trading strategies. In addition, Vertigo, which is our take on the ladder, is a compelling tool for those interested in fast, interactive trading.”

One-hundred of the most popular and liquid dollar denominated futures contracts are available now, with additions already in the pipeline. Futures trading is being offered at a commission rate of just $1.50/contract (per side), which puts it at well below average market pricing. tradeMONSTER also recently dropped their equity commission cost to a flat $4.95 per trade in order to remove cost as a barrier for investors to consolidate their portfolios and thus be in a position to better manage their trading and investments.
