Today you are going to see something new and awesome on StockTwits: The little pink “Z” you will now find on the site stands for Zap Trade, and it’s a feature powered by Zecco Trading that is available only on StockTwits.
Zap Trade: Trade instantly without leaving StockTwits
Zap Trade is a little “widget” that appears wherever you see a ticker symbol on StockTwits. Clicking the Z launches a pop-up trade ticket that lets you instantly place a trade with Zecco Trading, all without leaving the StockTwits site. Zap Trade even gives you a real-time quote to see what the price is before you place a trade.
It’s a little funny to explain, so you can see Zap Trade in action here.
All it takes is a Zecco Trading account
All you need to use Zap Trade is an account with Zecco Trading. It’s easy to sign up for a Zecco Trading account and stock trades are only $4.50 each. If you keep a balance of $25,000 or more, they’ll even give you 10 free stock trades each and every month! Who can’t use free stock trades?
If you already have a brokerage account, Zecco also makes a perfect second account where you can trade very easily with low costs. I have personally set up an account and will be tweeting about trades I make using Zap Trade in real time. This should be a ton of fun and I will keep my performance public and on the stream!
Indeed, we think Zap Trade is a pretty neat feature and we hope you enjoy!
