Barron’s announces TradeStation as the online-broker survey winner with improved offerings in portfolio reporting through it’s acquisition of Portfolio Maestro from RINA Systems.

New York, NY - February 3, 2012 – Barron’s Electronic Investor column dated February 3, 2012, written by Theresa W. Carey highlights TradeStation’s new offerings.

“We've long thought of TradeStation as a great place for very frequent traders to back-test their strategies on its huge database. Now, TradeStation is aiming to bring less-experienced traders into the fold without abandoning the needs of the established customer base. These projects include a first-time user's walk-through on their recently (and now, seamlessly) redesigned Website, and one-on-one sessions with customer-service representatives who will help newbies use its extensive tool kit.

Another area where TradeStation has improved its offerings is in portfolio reporting. After acquiring the technology from RINA Systems in 2010, a new feature called Portfolio Maestro—a portfolio-testing and optimization tool—was launched. Portfolio Maestro considers the overall performance of all of your holdings across asset classes, and offers risk assessment and optimization to help you improve your game.

Most trading-strategy optimizers consider a single item at a time, such as a stock, an options strategy or a forex pair. Portfolio Maestro considers portfolio-wide constraints, such as funds committed to other investments, to help protect profits and limit downside risk. The resulting reports can be viewed in a variety of tabular or graphical formats. The goal of acquiring Portfolio Maestro and incorporating it into the TradeStation platform was to offer traders a realistic and complete perspective on their portfolios. It's worth a look.”
