TL;DR: Today I am announcing we are no longer accepting new customers on our trading platform. Current customers, don't worry nothing is changing for you.
I have some big news!! Today, we are officially announcing the launch of Options Cafe. You can now use our platform to make options trades via Tradier. No other trading platform allows you to discover, trade, and review your trades like Options Cafe. We have built Options Cafe from the ground up with one thing in mind — making multi-leg options trading a snap. Also, get commission-free stock and options trades.
Tradier is a powerful brokerage API that allows non-brokers to provide broker services. Let’s talk about why Options Cafe selected Tradier as our first official partner.
- Say hello to Options Cafe! As the Founder and CEO of Stockpeer, and a tenured software developer, I am excited to announce that the Stockpeer.com blog is retiring and Options.Cafe is taking over. When I registered Stockpeer.com nearly 10 years ago, I had a much different vision. While I was trading options, at the time, stocks were my passion. Fast forward to today, and options have become the bulk of my trading activity.
Options Cafe backtester is here. Have you ever wondered how your options trading strategy would perform over time? I have, so I built a backtester. I wanted a way to simulate trading the options market day to day to see how well my strategies would have fared.
- I treat my trading and investing as a business, and like any prudent business manager I am constantly seeking to trim costs while growing revenue. With options trading the biggest costs are the commissions your broker charges for every trade. So in the interest of taming those fees I built a tool to help you find the cheapest broker for particular options trading strategies: say hello to Broker Finder. I routinely review and compare the broker commissions I pay, and I have realized that no one broker is the cheapest for every transaction.
