NorthPoint Trading Partners Selects Trade-Ideas’ Idea Generation Technology to Deliver Advanced Analytics to Hedge Fund Clients

ATLANTA, GA - 20 August 2006

NorthPoint Trading Partners LLC, a premier institutional brokerage and fund services company, today announced its selection of Trade-Ideas Pro as its advanced analytics provider. As a result NorthPoint Trading Partners’ services now include Trade-Ideas, the premier tool for idea generation technology and real-time analytics of the markets, as part of its suite of tools delivered to their hedge fund, institutional and active trader clients.

“The advanced analytics, real-time idea generation, and backtesting tools at Trade-Ideas level the playing field for our clients vs. larger, more capitalized participants and provide access to opportunities previously unseen. We understand how Trade-Ideas Pro improves trading decisions. Using it convinced us that our clients need it as well – that’s why we’re giving it to them as part of our service offering,” said Douglas Nelson, Chief Executive Officer of NorthPoint Trading Parnters LLC.
Some of the technical indicators produced by Trade-Ideas include unusual Relative Volume and Volatility; Moving Average Crossovers and Breakouts; False Gap Retracements; Strong Momentum, and many others.

“We are excited about our partnership with NorthPoint Trading Partners, LLC. NorthPoint offers a premier trading and Prime Brokerage platform geared toward small and mid-sized hedge funds. The majority of their clients are focused on long/short equities and equity options. One of the ways they distinguish themselves from other service providers is to offer high-touch, low cost services and analytic tools. Trade-Ideas is a great compliment to the Redi-PLUS platform provided by Goldman Sachs Execution and Clearing (GSEC) due, in part, to its ability to link directly to existing charts and order entry windows in Redi-PLUS,” said David Aferiat, Managing Partner of Trade Ideas LLC.
