About Us

Impartial Technology

The Trade Exchange Group, Inc. is dedicated to providing an independent and impartial platform where members can publish information that others can put money behind. Tracking a trade alert’s what, when and who is complicated, time consuming and easily misrepresented; and so is what was actually bought or sold. By remaining independent and free from obligation, The Exchange can accurately help members recognize what’s working and what’s not.

The Exchange’s independent tracking component can be used to validate profitable publishers. In today’s world knowing who to trust and what’s working is vital. The Trade Exchange Group, Inc. is also independent and indifferent to all financial institutions connected to The Exchange. The platform is connected to most online brokerage firms for account access and trading. The Exchange strives to give unilateral access to as many institutions as requested by our members.

Diversification

Mutual
Prosperity

Helping others financially prosper is something worth compensating.

Independence

The Trade Exchange will never favor one particular publisher, market enthusiast, or trade alert feed over another.
