Back in the heyday of trending stocks in 2007, the CME was the shizzle.
I know this because we Wallstripped them in one of my faves:
Today, the CME Group it’s a global $23 billion powerhouse of exchange, data and trading floors .
The Company is all over ‘real time’ and social web and Allan Schoenberg and I have been Twitter friends for quite some time.
I am glad to say that the CME is now a sponsor of Stocktwits , specifically the Forex and Futures streams and working with us to educate and promote Forex and Futures trading.
I believe you can’t predict things in the social web and you can’t force community. Out of nowhere, the Futures and Forex streams on Stocktwits have come alive and there amazingly talented traders contributing ideas and links. I had little to do with that and that’s cool.
The CME wants to help us build on that momentum and help grow the community now that it has sparked.
