NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Stocktwits, the original social platform for investors and traders across all asset classes including stocks, crypto, and other emerging investments, today announced that they are launching equities trading on the platform. This new capability will expand the company’s existing suite of trade execution capabilities creating a complete user journey, from awareness to execution, allowing users to purchase stocks directly within the Stocktwits platform through its wholly owned subsidiary and SEC registered Broker-Dealer, ST Invest, LLC.
“The Stocktwits community has been avidly following the equities market since our inception in 2008. With the addition of equities trading to our existing crypto trading product, the Stocktwits platform continues towards bringing a full suite of execution capabilities,” said Rishi Khanna, CEO of Stocktwits. “We’re excited to give our users a complete experience within the platform where they’ve formed their investing identity.”

With execution, quality data and stronger context surrounding stocks and coins, Stocktwits is able to deliver more value to users.
