January 7, 2015 - Is It Time To Cycle Into Housing?

In our “Wall Street Week Ahead” segment you often hear my good friend Joe Cusick from TradingBlock and me talk about housing data. Some would rather not think about housing, it may bring back some bad memories. But, that’s the point!

March 14, 2014 - Important Trading Lessons From Tradespoon Founder Vlad Karpel

Veteran investor and former OptionsXpress EVP Vlad Karpel recently told Benzinga about the most important lessons he learned early on in his career.

"I think the most important [lesson], especially for people who begin trading, is position sizing -- managing your portfolio properly," Karpel, founder of Tradespoon, told the Benzinga crew this week on PreMarket Prep. "Ultimately you'll be right and you'll be wrong, but you want to make sure that [your position] is sized accordingly where, even if you're wrong, your portfolio does not suffer to a point where you cannot recover from the losses."

JUNE 12, 2013 - Closing the Gap: Enabling Individual Investors to Trade with the Sophistication of Institutional Investors

CHICAGO, June 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A new service has launched called Tradespoon, which seeks to close the gap between retail and institutional investors. Most of the country's 50 million retail investors are in the dark compared to institutional investors. Institutional investors use complex quantitative systems that use statistical analysis of the millions of data points that affect stock prices. These real-time predictive systems help institutional traders make well-informed trading decisions. Institutional traders control a greater share of trading volume, which puts retail investors at an even greater disadvantage.

According to Vlad, "I started Tradespoon after watching too many retail investors lose money from having too little information about the market. Individual investors are truly trading in the dark. The use of statistical analysis and algorithms like the hedge funds use can dramatically increase the likelihood that an individual can maximize returns from trading."

APRIL 6, 2013 - Broker Nixes Tax Help

WANT SOME TRADING IDEAS based on technical and fundamental analysis? Vlad Karpel, one of the first employees at optionsXpress, who served as its chief technology officer until 2007, has them.

After working with hedge funds, Karpel last July started TradeSpoon (tradespoon.com), sharing the buy and sell signals that his proprietary analysis generates. "We believe that individuals at the beginning of their trading experience need some help with entry points, managing their positions, and managing risk," he says. "We're using our own proprietary algorithms to manage our own money, and wanted to offer the signals to subscribers."

TradeSpoon follows about 1,000 stocks, all of which have options available, and analyzes each daily. The system generates a trade of the day and recommends a long or short entry point. The firm sends subscribers an e-mail every trading day between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. Central time, allowing some time to reflect on the idea.
