WhoTrades.com was launched in 2010. Initially targeting international investors primarily from the US, Germany, India, China and Thailand, users from Arab countries, Latin America and Malaysia have also demonstrated keen interest in the project. The Russian-speaking segment of the network started to expand in 2012, following a merger with Comon.ru[i] (a social media for traders targeting a Russian-speaking audience). The media interface presently exists in 21 languages.
Social media functionality
A common blogging environment facilitates access to alternative forecasts by independent researchers and experts, sharing views on the economic landscape and trading strategies intended to enhance returns in the financial markets. A motivated program for bloggers encourages authors to write vibrant research notes, vying for the reader’s attention.
Every day, WhoTrades gains thousands of new sign-ups, users publish hundreds of blog posts in different languages and many tens of thousands of active users visit the website.
Unlike other dedicated social media, WhoTrades.com users can connect with the full-fledged functionality for trading on major stock exchanges, as well as on the Forex market. Network members can trade on their own ideas and strategies or imitate activities of other WhoTrades.com users who share access to their trading strategies. A trading account can be opened via the Internet.
In 2013, WhoTrades.com put forward a new interactive mode of distance learning, which simplifies investment fundamentals for neophyte traders and teaches them to trade on their own.
