About The TradeStreet
The TradeStreet is building a custom social network built for traders where discovering proven traders is easy based on their track record and meaningful ratings. The user experience of a social network assists in the “bouncing around” of ideas, where traders upload their trades instead of pictures and plan their portfolios instead of trips. Users can interact with fellow traders in an amazing social environment and also understand the power of crowd sourcing. The founders believe that The TradeStreet will be extremely beneficial for the trading community, which includes both amateurs and experienced traders.
