About

TradeJester was created with one goal in mind: offer people a new way to engage in the stock market that takes fear and intimidation away. Using fantasy stock trading games, you learn to successfully trade actively in the stock market in a low-risk, low-stress way. In the process, you will learn a trading strategy that, when you're ready, you can use to succeed in the real stock market and grow wealth. Our mission is to create success in active trading through gamification.

MEDICI Analysis

Tempus Analytics has developed the gamified app for stock market trading to traders. The company offers TradeJester's Earnings Game which is the weekly game that offers users to give the chance to win real money by virtually trading stocks around earnings announcements.

Focus

PRODUCTS & SERVICES

Mobile/Web based trading app for traders powered by gamification technology. The platform helps users to actively engage in stock markets and also improve their trading stratergy through the games.

REVENUE MODEL

We take entry fees on contests, entry fees for private (educational) tournaments, and charge a subscription fee for in-app trading.

PRIMARY PROBLEM SOLVED

We get millennials off of the sidelines and into the stock market. Millennials are largely not invested in the stock market, and most that are are simply using 401ks and IRAs to put money into mutual funds and ETFs that don't even match the indices in growth rate. Rather than driving them into mindless passive trading apps that act as glorified savings accounts, we use gamification to teach millennials how to trade the stock market in a way that is active, engaging, and effective in growing real wealth.

PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT STAGE

MARKET TRIAL

PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT COMMENT

Our first game, the Earnings Game, is complete and already being tested on the market. We are currently developing in-app trading that will be live by the end of March, 2017.

KEY DIFFERENTIATORS

Our games offer entertainment value, but more importantly, they teach a real, effective trading strategy that can be put into effect today. Not only that, but the strategy is personalized to the user, learning from their own mistakes and successes. Additionally, the strategy can be effective even in a down market.
