TradeStation, an online broker-dealer and futures commission merchant, will now provide clients with real-time market data for four cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash and Litecoin. The new service is due to a partnership with GDAX, part of the Coinbase family of companies.
TradeStation says that providing clients with real-time market data for some of the world’s most popular cryptocurrencies is another important step in broadening TradeStation’s appeal beyond traditional assets.
John Bartleman, President of TradeStation Group, said the data can help guide trading decisions. Bartleman did not state how soon they will be enabling transactions in the aforementioned digital currencies – a move that is inevitably in the works.
“We’re pleased to pair GDAX’s powerful digital asset exchange data with TradeStation’s impressive analytics platform,” said Adam White, VP and General Manager of GDAX. “The ability to access GDAX’s spot market data alongside Cboe and CME futures data will provide users with an enhanced ability to evaluate and trade the crypto derivatives market in real time.”
