Something sweet that won’t rot your teeth this Halloween - Kevin Luthringshausen, CEO, TradeHawk 

We at TradeHawk are always looking to create value and an edge for our traders. This mission has helped us become a widely used platform in the market. TradeHawk offers the new alternative to the legacy Think or Swim and Interactive Brokers platforms. Continuing on this path, we are releasing Bracket and Trigger Orders in time for Halloween.  These order types allow users to place conditional and one cancels other (OCOs) on stocks, options, and spreads on the Tradier API.  Managing your portfolio with such order types removes emotion from trading decisions, giving you added opportunity to search for your next great trade! We have spent the time and energy to make sure that you as a trader have the best seamless experience.

Why Tradier has been a better choice to build an equity or options platform for so many

Rest based Approach: The Tradier API is secure and built to fully support HTTP and tested to function effectively across browsers, mobile operating systems and IOT devices. If you are building a trading platform, robo advisor, social, mobile or a web experience, Tradier a better API because of our “API First” focus.

Better-api (1)

Tuned: Tradier API calls are tested, tuned and used by actual traders and developers. Tradier is constantly looking at the responsive times of all our large and innovative companies using the Tradier API and has constantly made the Tradier API better.

Sandbox or Virtual Trading: Tradier offers a Virtual Trading and Delayed market data API so that you can test a strategy with virtual money. You can use the Data API’s to build innovative products and also can offer virtual accounts to your customers. This is a great way to get new users to try your product quickly. Tradier’s Virtual Trading API supports Equity and Options Trading. This is another differentiator from Interactive Brokers.

Cost: Tradier does not charge for API usage. Tradier makes money like any typical brokerage. Commissions are structured so that customers are not paying large commissions and are able to keep these costs to a minimum.

Account Minimums: Tradier does not have account minimums for accounts from referred from partners. IB requires a 10K minimum.

Competing with you: Tradier: Tradier is a B2B focused firm whose main goal is to support you on your growth journey. Unlike other brokers, Tradier does not have a combined B2B - B2C focus because they do not want to compete with their clients and partners who have a B2C focus.

Support: Tradier developers supports all aspects of the API and are available for you as your build and grow your platform.



Enabling Innovation: Trailing Stops: How Tradehawk continues to innovate on Tradier.
By Tradier Post on Jul 20, 2018 at 10:25:46 AM

TradeHawk has today grown to be a leading retail investor product for Active traders in the market. TradeHawk built its product on the Tradier platform not only because of the extensive API functionality but because of what Tradier stands for. Today teams at both Tradier and Tradehawk fosters open communication and innovation with the sole goal of giving investors a technology enabled edge on the market


 Tradehawk recently announced the availability of Trailing stop orders as a part of its core product. A trailing stop is a dynamic stop order that “trails” a stock, option, or spread by a user-defined amount, and triggers a buy or sell order to close out of a position if it moves in an unfavorable direction.  This feature protects traders and is unavailable in most platforms in the market. Some existing legacy brokers were actually charging for this feature in spite of offering a fairly incomplete and clunky product.


TradeHawk CEO Kevin "Lex" Luthringshausen and their CTO Kosta Panousis are true enetrepeuners. In collaboration with the Tradier Team, they implemented a unique and simple implementation of Trailing Stops. The pace at which this complex problem was solved by collaboration stands not only for how good entrepreneurs hustle but also how the Tradier continues to foster an ecosystem that delivers value to retail investors


Tradier CEO Dan Raju said “We at Tradier have grown to be one of the most widely used Fintech API’s because companies like TradeHawk push us every day to innovate”


In an environment where legacy brokers like Interactive Brokerage, TD Ameritrade, Bank of America and Fidelity have boxed the market with a “we know better approach”, Tradier is able to truly foster an ecosystem that is nimble and drive rapid functionality creation for the investor market.
