March Trade Idea Volume Up 219% Year over Year

Trade Ideas Limited (TIL) announced March 2008 volume of 13,005 electronically transmitted trade ideas, up 219% compared to March 2007 and up 9% from February 2008, reflecting continued strong growth for the value-added brokerage service. Total volume of live and historical trade ideas in TIL’s database as of March 2008 was 141,876 – 268% more than a year ago and 14% more than the preceding month.

TIL also reported that 17 new sell and buy side firms joined the industry wide trade idea movement in March 2008, for a total of 305 participating brokerage firms, hedge funds and traditional long only investment managers in the US, UK and Far East, a year over year increase of 70%. “Altogether, for the first quarter ended March 31, 2008, 40 new firms signed up, the largest three-month total since TIL launched its service in the fourth quarter of 2005,” noted Simon Tizard, the TIL’s Executive Director.

Colin Berthoud, Director of youDevise Limited, which markets the Trade Idea Monitor (TIM), noted, “A growing number of new buy side participants are quantitative trading firms, attracted to the now sizeable database of ideas that can be analyzed by black box trading systems.” The TIM is the leading third party application for authoring trade ideas; sending and receiving them through the TIL’s Repository and Distribution Centre (RDC); and tracking the current and historical performance of an individual equity salesperson or brokerage firm.
