Striker Securities


Striker Securities

Striker Securities is an Introducing Broker and provides excellent execution services for all of the Ranger Alpha Library strategies.

Strike was founded in 1991 and in 1998 began providing the pioneering service which introduced investors to what then was called system trading. This is now called algorithmic trading. They provide this directly to clients at their IB and as a white-label service to a long list of brokerage firms. This is a link to their website and their contact info.

The monthly fee for each strategy is $195 and is debited directly from your brokerage account. They add a small fee per trade which varies by strategy.

If you currently have an account at one of the listed brokerage firms, contact your broker and tell him that you wish to lease a Ranger Alpha strategy or two and have execution done by Striker. He or she should know how to proceed. If your broker does not, contact William Gallwas directly at Striker Securities at (800) 669-8838 and he will be happy to get you set up.

If your broker is not on the list, you can also contact William at the same number. It is possible they are executing with a subsidiary of your firm or through their IB. His biography follows.
