ARLINGTON, Va., Jan. 24, 2001 (PRIMEZONE) -- Trade Wall Street, Inc. (TWS), an online trading and financial services firm, today announced the release of ECNStreamer(TM). Along with a broad array of financial services, all customer online trading accounts are provided with direct access equity and stock trading through Trade Wall Street, Inc., Brokerage, Member NASD and SIPC. TWS online trading clients connect to ECNs and market makers through a simple and easy-to-use, point-and-click, Internet-based order entry system. Online ECN direct access trades range from $9.95-$14.95 plus ECN fees (see Note).

The launch is expected to bring ECN direct access trading to individuals everywhere.

ECNStreamer and ECNDirect(TM) online trading accounts allow individuals to trade equities direct with other market participants including IslandECN, ArchipelagoECN, Nasdaq, NYSE, Selectnet, Dot and Market Makers.

Robert Shapiro, Business Development Officer of Trade Wall Street, commented "There has been an extremely high demand for ECNStreamer. Clients want the choice to execute their trades directly with other market participants. We are reaching out to investors who want the choice to route their orders in real time with ECNs such as IslandECN, ArchipelagoECN, and other brokerage firms and market makers. I'm excited about the explosive growth in the ECN Direct Access Trading business. The demand for clients wanting to go 'direct in real-time' with their investing activity is astonishing.
