Who We Are

Much like the pubs, shops and buttonwood trees in the early years of what would eventually be known as Wall Street, The Ticker District carries on the tradition of meeting places where traders can gather to discuss and debate the financial markets, investments and trades of the day. The Ticker District brings together experts with different skills sets and market perspectives to dissect the stories of the day. You’ll find intelligent, informed and professional debate on issues that affect your portfolio. And the best part is that you can follow the discussion in real time.
