Mobile application that facilitates easy stock trading

Thomson Reuters has launched proTRade, a mobile application that facilitates easy and informed stock trading. This is an exchange-certified application and first of its kind that brings together trusted data and information to deliver unique market insights for informed decisions, along with the ease of trading.

proTRade, which is available on both iOS and Android platforms, will be licensed to brokerages, who in turn will be able to customise the application to offer it to their customers.

Paresh Hede, Director — Enterprise Solutions, Thomson Reuters, South Asia told Business Line that the aim would be to sign up at least top 50 brokerage houses in the next one year.

“We are already working on a host of features including facilitating trading of all exchange related asset classes and KYC compliance through this app which will make it even more relevant and useful for both brokerages as well as their customers. With proTRade, we want to be among the top three players in this space in the next six months,” Paresh added.

Thomson Reuters has adopted ‘mobile first’ strategy for proTRade. The desktop version of the application will also be available soon.

Sriram Ramnarayan, Vice-President and Head — Financial and Risk, Thomson Reuters, South Asia, said, “We are very excited to bring this unique product to the market. proTRade has been designed to specifically meet the ever-changing needs of the stock markets and investors.

“It will give customers secure and real time access to quotes and trading, and the ease of quick and informed trading execution.”

A letter from the Editor


Dear Readers,

The coronavirus crisis has changed the world completely in the last few months. All of us have been locked into our homes, economic activity has come to a near standstill. Everyone has been impacted.

Including your favourite business and financial newspaper. Our printing and distribution chains have been severely disrupted across the country, leaving readers without access to newspapers. Newspaper delivery agents have also been unable to service their customers because of multiple restrictions.

In these difficult times, we, at BusinessLine have been working continuously every day so that you are informed about all the developments – whether on the pandemic, on policy responses, or the impact on the world of business and finance. Our team has been working round the clock to keep track of developments so that you – the reader – gets accurate information and actionable insights so that you can protect your jobs, businesses, finances and investments.

We are trying our best to ensure the newspaper reaches your hands every day. We have also ensured that even if your paper is not delivered, you can access BusinessLine in the e-paper format – just as it appears in print. Our website and apps too, are updated every minute, so that you can access the information you want anywhere, anytime.

That we have managed so far is thanks to your support. I thank all our subscribers – print and digital – for your support.

I appeal to all or readers to help us navigate these challenging times and help sustain one of the truly independent and credible voices in the world of Indian journalism. Doing so is easy. You can help us enormously simply by subscribing to our digital or e-paper editions.
