Best of Show winner Capitalise is beginning the year with a bang: the company’s technology – which enables traders to automate their strategies using natural language – is now live with Interactive Brokers.
“Partnering with the prominent Interactive Brokers is a cornerstone achievement for Capitalise,” said company CEO Shahar Rabin. “This partnership will allow IB users to take their trading to new heights by automating them with the Capitalise platform. We believe IB users will enjoy and benefit from the hands-off experience of algo trading.”
Capitalise offers a white label solution that redefines trading automation by enabling traders to build and automate their own unique strategies using natural language. The technology transforms if-then scenarios into executable trades, monitoring the market and making entries and exits based on parameters provided in plain English by the trader. In this way, Capitalise brings the benefits of algorithmic trading to the average investor without requiring programming knowledge or ability.
The technology also enables traders to optimize their strategies, allowing them to analyze, predict, and improve investment outcomes with the click of a button. Capitalise is integrated with trading accounts on many third-party exchanges and brokers, making it easy for traders and investors to manage their trades in one place.
Capitalise plans to add a number of additional features to the platform including a social network for traders called The Social Arena, as well as backtesting functionality to enable traders to apply historical data to specific scenarios.
Interactive Brokers is an electronic brokerage firm based in the United States, with offices in 12 countries. Founded in 1978, the company has grown into the biggest electronic broker in the country based on daily average revenue trades and the number one forex brokerage. IB serves 385,000 client brokerage accounts, adding up to $86 billion in customer equity.
Founded in 2014 and headquartered in Tel Aviv, Capitalise demonstrated its technology at FinovateSpring 2017, winning Best of Show. Last fall, the company announced that it would be one of 11 startups to participate in the 10th cohort at the Microsoft Accelerator Tel Aviv.
