PLANTATION, Fla., Feb. 13, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TradeStation, a Monex Group company (Monex Group, Inc. is listed on the first section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange, code: 8698), will officially launch its all-new online TradingApp™ Store at the annual New York Traders Expo.

TradeStation's TradingApp Store is designed to transform the online trading landscape by giving TradeStation clients access to more ideas, strategies, technology and custom trading solutions than ever before. The TradingApp Store is an online marketplace that currently offers more than 650 products, including strategies, indicators, analysis techniques and other tools. The TradingApp Store leverages the ingenuity of more than 250 independent third-party developer-traders to create a marketplace that continuously adds products.

TradingApps can be downloaded directly from, and will run seamlessly on, TradeStation's award-winning trading platform. Some TradingApps are leased on a monthly basis (which enables traders to avoid incurring a large one-time investment), others are offered free of charge, and many TradingApps offer a free trial.

"Our new TradingApp Store will encourage innovation by tapping the limitless creativity of traders, software developers and other market professionals to bring our clients a virtually endless supply of new ideas and trading tools," said Salomon Sredni, CEO of TradeStation Group, Inc. and COO of Monex Group, Inc. "The TradingApp Store represents an ever-expanding universe of new tools that leverage the latest technologies and empower TradeStation clients to customize their trading environment and take their trading to the next level."

"While no two traders trade the same way, every trader is looking for new ideas, new ways to look at the market and identify trading opportunities, and new ways to be more productive and more efficient," Sredni added. "Retail investors, active traders and even institutional traders can find tools in the TradingApp Store that allow them to customize the platform to meet their unique needs."
