Power E*TRADE platform

Release notes

Learn about the latest upgrades and enhancements to our best-in-class trading platform1 for stocks, options, and futures.

We at E*TRADE believe that the development process is nothing less than magical in nearly every way. In the name of transparency, we thought we would share our process and a list of past updates.

  • Step one: Get an idea. 
  • Step two: Tell said idea to developers and testers. 
  • Step three: Code a lot.
  • Step four: Test and argue. 
  • Step five: Release confetti, release doves, release the hounds, and release the software.

See? Magic!
