We built Profitly as a way to introduce measurement, accountability, transparency and data-driven optimization into the trading world.
Our inspiration came from Timothy Sykes trying to help his students trade better when he realized detailed performance data helps people focus on what works best for them thus making them more profitable.
Profitly co-founder Michael Mosseri built the platform that took the guesswork out of traders being able to data mine their statistics and increase their performance through Guru teachers.
While we are obsessed with transparency, we also realize that absurd industry regulations prevent many from sharing openly so we added the ability to create private profiles so those traders and investors may still benefit from the added analytics with the comfort of total account privacy.
We will continue adding features and members as we sincerely believe that our little website will help make investors and traders more profitable through honesty and analysis rather than the overwhelming mistake the online financial world currently makes by focusing solely on breaking news, "hot stocks" and simplistic fundamentals analysis in order to drive website traffic.
Please do tell your friends and colleagues about Profit.ly, the more traders and investors, the more knowledgeable and profitable our community becomes.
