Plantation, Florida, UNITED STATES

NEW YORK, March 21, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TradeStation, a Monex Group company and award-winning* online broker-dealer and futures commission merchant, will host an exciting “pop-up” event offering participants the chance to “Get a Fresh Look” with free haircuts, blue dye jobs and blue wigs at New York City’s newest transportation and entertainment hub, the Oculus, on March 27-29.

In addition to haircuts and dye jobs, the “Get a Fresh Look” event will offer a “selfie wall” for attendees to show off their new looks and an iPad station to explore TradeStation’s innovative desktop, mobile and web trading platforms. TradeStation will also be hosting an interactive simulated trading competition, offering Amazon gift cards to the day’s top traders.

The “fresh look” theme of the Oculus event mirrors TradeStation’s own rebranding effort in the past year, which included a fresh new redesign of the website, logo and online user experience.

TradeStation has also made a number of bold moves in the past year to appeal to its growing customer base, including the introduction of simplified low-cost commission pricing for stocks, options, and futures, support for traders wishing to trade bitcoin futures, a partnership with live digital news network Cheddar, and expansion of the company’s “TradeStation Salutes” program, which features low-cost commission pricing and guided investor education for America’s active-duty military personnel, veterans and first responders.

“We’ve changed a lot this past year – enhancing our award-winning trading platform, simplifying our pricing and refreshing our overall look and user experience,” said John Bartleman, President of TradeStation Group, Inc. “We’re thinking outside the box, and this pop-up event is our opportunity to celebrate, have some fun and invite everyone to take a fresh look at TradeStation.”

TradeStation is working with live broadcast network Cheddar, which will be offering live coverage of the pop-up at the Oculus, available at
