TradeStation plans to fully adopt TT’s options-on-futures offering by mid-2019 in order to extend its tools to its user base and future customers. “Powered by TT” will be read under the “TradeStation” brand.

Trading Technologies is experiencing rapid business expansion worldwide in 2018. After bringing cryptocurrency trading to a professional level in March, the firm signed a number of Asia Pacific based market participants in recent weeks. Australian-based Genesis Proprietary Trading, Singapore-based KGI Securities and Straits Financial, are some of TT’s recent customers.
In 2018, TT partnered with Coinbase, owner of Global Digital Asset Exchange (GDAX), to provide professional cryptocurrency trading functionality and market access to the institutional trading world. Users can trade both spot and derivative markets side by side for the first time, to view market data, submit orders, and leverage a market-leading suite of charting and automated trading tools to trade cryptocurrencies on GDAX.
TT users are some of the largest futures and commodity traders in the world. The company’s distribution partners include 19 of the top 20 futures commission merchants and its connectivity stretches to nearly 45 markets, including the futures markets of the CME Group, Deutsche Boerse, Intercontinental Exchange and Nasdaq.
