TradeZero Onboards Dave Portnoy, Sponsors Davey Day Trader Global Show #DDTG

TradeZero America, a commission-free trading platform, formally announced a sponsorship deal with Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy.

What Happened?

On June 25, Portnoy without much explanation, was booted off of E*Trade Financial Corporation’s (NASDAQ: ETFC) electronic trading platform.

Alongside the development, TradeZero, a holistic trading technology and brokerage provider whose commission-free, direct-access routing web and desktop platforms allow market participants best-access to consistent execution and trading insights, onboarded Portnoy and announced it would sponsor the Davey Day Trader Global #DDTG show, allowing new users free TradeZero Pro access.

“We were looking at promoting, sponsoring the show for quite some time,” said TradeZero co-founder Dan Pipitone. “We signed a sponsorship deal and that day he got thrown off E*Trade. It kind of happened and he brought the account to us.”

According to Pipitone, the sponsorship speaks to what TradeZero is as a company: “We’re really geared to when those brand new players want more and it is apparent that they’re limited.”

Why It Matters?

As part of a vision to be the leading destination for connecting people to the largest markets, TradeZero is honing in on improved streaming and consistency in execution.

“We’re looking to create a velvet rope experience,” Pipitone noted in an interview earlier this year regarding the firm’s improved charting and options offering. “People can come and fund their accounts for free. They can run with our dynamically updating level one platform.”
