ECHOtrade is a professional trading firm dedicated to the needs of serious, off-floor trader.
ECHOtrade was founded in 1999 by a group of experienced traders who felt the professional trading community needed more choice. Their goal was to become an industry leader by providing reliable software geared towards speed of execution, lower cost transactions and higher payouts. They also set out to provide a level of customer service unmatched in the industry, to ensure that every trader who chooses ECHOtrade knows they are a valued member of the firm.
ECHOtrade maintains these values today, and continues to excel at meeting and exceeding the needs of the serious off-floor trader. As this industry evolves - rules and regulations change, technology gets more advanced, strategies diversify - we are committed to making sure that our traders have the ability to capitalize on emerging opportunities.
ECHOtrade has opportunities for every type of trader. The people who most commonly seek out our firm generally fall into one of the following categories:
Experienced professional traders coming from another proprietary trading firm looking to take advantage of our low costs and lightning-fast executions.
Traders who used to trade in the pits, former market makers, exchange seat-holders and former specialists appreciate the flexibility and control that trading with ECHOtrade offers.
Traders who are looking to move away from trading customer accounts and cold-calling, who want to focus on their own trading and implement their own short-term trading strategies and ideas will find our structure appealing. Please see our FAQ section if you have an expired Series 7 license...we may have an opportunity for you!
