MyTrade – From Start To Sale In Less Than One Year

If you are into trading, you've probably seen Mytrade already. If not, definitely check it out. The big news today is that Mytrade was acquired by a subsidiary of Investools, less than one year after the founders, Andy and Landon Swan, sold their last company.

Check out Andy's post for the story of Mytrade, and his tips for building a successful business. Also be sure to check out Howard's thoughts on deal, as he was one of the early investors.

I've had the privilege of hanging out with Andy and Landon on multiple occasions, because they happen to live here in Louisville. In addition to holding the record for tallest startup founding team (they both played college basketball) they are smart guys who always have something witty to say. Congrats to the Mytrade team on the sale.

    It’s a shame they were bought by Investools. That company seems to run a really sleazy shop, IMHO.

  • Thanks Rob!

    Matthew…obviously you’re not a customer or employee of Investools or thinkorswim, the unit that bought us.

  • Thanks Rob! Great Louisville support is appreciated and growing.
