Chicago, IL (February 14, 2017) – Futures.io announced that TopstepTrader is named a top Trading Product of the Year, along with Jigsaw Trading and Bookmap xRay, by a userbase of over 85,000 traders - the largest futures trading community worldwide.
In January, 2017, futures.io held an open nomination process for the True Edge Awards in which members nominated top trading companies for 13 different categories. These categories included: Futures Broker of the Year, Options Broker of the Year, Trading Platform of the Year, Options Platform of the Year, Mobile Platform of the Year, Data Feed of the Year, and Trading Product of the Year. Six additional categories were focused on user-contributed content on the community site, including: Member of the Year, Webinar of the Year, Thread of the Year, Journal of the Year, Programmer of the Year, and Indicator of the Year.
TopstepTrader was nominated for Trading Product of the Year for their unique offering, the Trading Combine®. The Trading Combine is a real-time, simulated evaluation of a trader’s performance. When traders follow the risk criteria and meet their profit targets, they earn Funded Accounts™ where they trade real capital, keeping up to 100% of the profits.
“We are honored to be voted Trading Product of the Year by such a reputable and dedicated trading community,” said Michael Patak, TopstepTrader CEO & Founder, and 2016 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year® Midwest Finalist. “We share many community members with futures.io, and value the merit of being selected by the traders themselves. This award confirms for us that we are living by our vision to ‘be where the world goes to safely engage in and profit from financial markets.’”
