History

The STS Analytics project was started in in November 2010 during one of the most volatile periods in history for global financial markets. It was intended to harness the expert knowledge and experience of a number of successful traders and financial professionals from around the globe and fuel unprecedented demand for research and analytics in the financial market. Within the first year, new members from around the world were added and began to significantly contribute to open projects.

As the STS Analytics project became larger members got involved and expanded the scope of the project’s original mission — instead of just working on none commercial research and analytical projects, the information coming out of the research was so valuable that it provided a significant competitive advantage which led to the development of our commercial projects. After several months of operation, the STS Analytics group worked with a global top 20 hedge fund and during this period many improvements were made to the research process.

Members have contributed to STS Analytics in different ways, but everyone is passionate about sharing market intelligence that enables all participants in the financial markets to access the best possible market information.

As a result, STS Analytics partnered with Trading Insights, an investment and trading training consultancy and Forensic Markets to complement the projects that we work on. Alongside our blog Trading Insights platform was and continues to be used to share the work that we do by providing our none proprietary research to the investment and trading community.
