About the Trade Idea Monitor (the TIM)

Institutional brokerage firms use the web-based Trade Idea Monitor to generate commissions through the development and distribution of stock trading ideas to hedge and quant funds and long-term asset managers.  As opposed to traditional sell-side research, stock trading ideas are time sensitive, client specific long/short recommendations. Buy side firms typically pay for ideas based on performance.  More than 70% of ideas from TIM contributors outperform their relevant regional indexes.
