ST. LOUIS--()--Scottrade Inc., a leading investing services company, this week unveiled the latest update to its new advanced trading platform built to help active traders analyze price movements, identify and measure trend strength and react to market shifts as they occur.

“Our goal is to help our traders gain an edge on the market, and with insight from our active traders, we believe we’ve done just that,” said Brian Bachelier, vice president of Scottrade’s Active Trader Strategy. “With an intuitive design, real-time market analysis and streamlined idea generation, new ScottradeELITE® has a short learning curve but deep functionality.”

Built with input from Scottrade’s active traders collected in usability testing, face-to-face meetings and online forums, Scottrade has created a platform that meets the complex needs of active traders. Features in the new ScottradeELITE® include:

  • Easier research and enhanced charting with 50-plus indicators, sophisticated drawing tools and the ability to replay market shifts.
  • Scottrade’s Sector Trends tool to provide deeper insight into the market using a new proprietary formula that measures momentum strength.
  • Intraday Trader by Recognia®1 to help clients find new trade ideas with predefined or custom technical setups.
  • New Relative Strength Index study built into ELITE charts to help traders identify the level to which a security may be overbought or oversold.
  • Streamlined customization and intuitive organization so clients can detach any window from the main ScottradeELITE® platform to monitor favorite stocks or place trades while visiting other websites.

“As part of Scottrade’s commitment to bring clients the latest technology, the company uses an iterative process and rollout schedule that enables quick, nimble and constant improvement,” said Bachelier. “Simply put, we are constantly working to improve your trading experience.”

The latest update helps clients customize their ScottradeELITE® experience even more. Clients can now show or hide tabs in their Watch List, Option Chains, Advanced Scanner and Charts windows, and snap-to windows make tailoring their layout quick and easy with windows that “snap” into position. With the latest release, clients can also track the market’s top performers through the Quotes menu and access independent trading ideas from Recognia’s Daily Market Report and Trading Central.

Scottrade also has a dedicated team of specialists for its active trader clients who have superior knowledge of the ScottradeELITE® platform, options and margin. These associates work directly with active traders to understand their overall goals and help them overcome barriers with special support and education.
