In a strategic alliance with Shinhan Investment Corp., one of Korea’s leading investment and brokerage firms, Shinhan will have the exclusive right to offer TradeStation to its customers and the entire Korean investor market. Korean investors and traders will now have the ability to use TradeStation to create, back-test, optimize and automate their trading strategies and ideas, limitless charting and report analyses opportunities, and to enjoy advanced market and limit order placement on the KRX equities and futures markets. The Phase I trial of the TradeStation/Shinhan offering is now underway, and the full Phase II offering is expected to be launched this May.

TradeStation and Shinhan Investment Corp. signed formal agreements in November 2013. Under the agreements, TradeStation has licensed to Shinhan Investment Corp. the exclusive right to market, offer and provide to the Korean investor market TradeStation 9.5, the current version of the platform, localized for that market both by translation to Korean language and seamless compatibility with the KRX equities and futures markets and Shinhan’s order placement and back-office systems. TradeStation will be the only premium platform offered by Shinhan.

Salomon Sredni, CEO of TradeStation Group, said: "We believe that our award-winning trading platform technology, now in its 9.5 version, will offer to Korean investors and traders high-value functions and features not previously available to them. We believe that Shinhan Investment Corp. is the right partner to deliver TradeStation to the Korean market and look forward to a successful launch and rollout of the offering."

Dae Suk Kang, CEO of Shinhan Investment Corp, said: "We are very excited to be able to offer TradeStation to the Korean market. There is clearly nothing else like it in Korea, and we believe that serious, active and professional online investors and traders in our markets will appreciate the power, leverage and benefits using TradeStation will bring them. We look forward to our next announcement when we are ready to launch the full Phase II offering."
