Ticker.tv was launched in December 2014 as a live broadcasting network for investors and traders, ala Twitch.tv for stock trading.
Ticker.tv had a tremendous run of growth its first year. From the sale announcement:
142 different channels
6,000+ registered users
6,500+ hours of streamed broadcasts
48,000+ hours viewed live
180,000+ chat messages
Despite the strong growth, a strategic decision was made late last year to shut down Ticker.tv to focus on other core assets.
Almost immediately after the announcement there was significant interest from parties wanting to purchase the site. And, after over a month of deliberation, we decided to sell Ticker.tv to a group of private traders.
The new owners are extremely passionate about the market and were thrilled to bring Ticker.tv back online. Last night the official email was sent out to all Ticker.tv users letting them know the site had returned to regular live broadcasting.
While this is goodbye from us as the founding team, we are excited for the 6000+ users. If you’re interested in watching traders and investors live, check out Ticker.tv. My personal channel is StockJunkie.
