We are Trading Places, a startup that uses financial investments to change lives.

But how do we achieve this? Over the past 5 years, we have developed an automated algorithm that uses a broker interface to conduct transactions in the day trading market. In this way, our “robots” buy and sell stocks based on market movements.

Each robot has a pre-programmed behavior, allowing us to increase our chances of profit and minimize risks. Some robots are more aggressive, others more conservative, and while one is in action, the other withdraws, all without the human emotional element.

We reserve our emotional aspect for the social part, as the profits we make with our robots are directed towards social projects. We have examples of clinics/schools in Malawi, Africa, whose construction was partially funded by our robots.

We are also beginning to integrate our robots with AI software. This way, our robots will have real-time access to the financial market news, making their success rate even higher.

Currently, we are expanding our scope to include paying scholarships for young girls and also financing community farms.

We operate on the Brazilian Stock Exchange and now we are ready to enter the most challenging market in the world: the American market. To do this, we are submitting our idea to competitions in order to obtain insights that will allow us to help even more people, bridging the gap between the financial market and those who need it most.

Our mission is to make you switch places for a moment and awaken the empathy that we all possess, but which is often dormant.

Welcome to our initiative, welcome to Trading Places.
