About Us

Headquartered in New York, StoryTrading is a social investing platform that makes sense of the stock market by crowdsourcing research from investors to understand the hidden story behind the trade. The platform turns the table on Wall Street insiders by empowering individual investors, who lack the resources of hedge fund managers and other institutions, to make more informed decisions about buying and selling stocks. StoryTrading is a place to discover, collaborate, and validate market-moving information. Through crowdsourced research, social collaboration and easy-to-understand holistic data visualizations, StoryTrading democratizes information that helps investors make smarter trades.
