E*TRADE Unveils Series of Enhancements for Power E*TRADE Platform


Active traders now have an expanded arsenal of resources to quickly make informed trading decisions

E*TRADE Financial Corporation (ETFC) today announced a series of enhancements to its Power E*TRADE active trader platform. Customers now have access to:

  • Paper trading: Clients can test drive the platform and experiment with a variety of trading strategies without investing real money.
  • Enhanced alert manager: Active traders can create alerts for a single options contract or even multiple legs. Users can also select the dollar amount to trigger the alert and specify it as the bid, ask, last, or mark price.
  • Saved equity and options orders: Customers exploring equity and options trade ideas but not ready to take action can store orders on any E*TRADE platform and view, cancel, or modify them anytime, anywhere.
  • Intraday technical pattern recognition: E*TRADE’s first-of-its-kind automatic technical pattern recognition and education tool is now available intraday up to a 15-minute frequency, as opposed to just daily.

E*TRADE is also now offering Micro E-mini equity index futures contracts, which are one-tenth the size of a typical E-mini futures contract. Now, traders can easily access the 24/6 futures market and execute a variety of trading strategies with less capital.

“We are continually adding even more firepower to our award-winning trading platform to deliver the easy-to-use resources traders crave,” said Chris Larkin, Senior Vice President of Trading at E*TRADE Financial. “At E*TRADE, our traders know they have access to the latest useful technology and innovations to help them test drive new ideas, seize opportunities as they arise, or even trade new investment vehicles like Micro E-mini futures.”

E*TRADE aims to enhance the financial independence of traders and investors through a powerful digital offering and professional guidance. To learn more about E*TRADE’s trading and investing platforms and tools, visit etrade.com.
