Plan the trade,
Trade the plan
We build software that individual investors can use to help them do just that.
I believe that we, as individual investors can do very well in the stock market, but not with trading apps that require us to push the button. Trading apps with bright colors and falling confetti animations take advantage of our emotions and encourage behaviors similar to how casinos encourage us to gamble.
Let's avoid all of that and free ourselves from our devices at the same time. Let's step back into the role of Portfolio Manager and automate the operation of our strategies with sophisticated computer programs that run inside our brokerage accounts and truly work for us.
This is why I built Tiblio AI and I truly hope that you enjoy it as much as I do.

Revisiting the idea in 2019
Leon and Kevin meet at UCLA Anderson and discuss different ideas for launching a data service to retail investors to help solve the issues with data quality and transparency. This is during the rise of Robinhood and the concept of providing free data and zero commissions to investors. The tradeoff is that the brokerage makes money through a newer vehicle called Pay for Order Flow. This is generally considered to not be in the best interests of the investor.FINRA Fines Robinhood Financial, LLC $1.25 Million for Best Execution Violations
Tiblio is conceived of as an investment vehicle providing access to Bitcoin on the heels of Bitcoin futures being made available through CBOE. This concept was tabled and Kevin entered business school at UCLA Anderson.
The Spark, July 2017
Kevin heavily traded stock options and built a prototype software package for ingesting and analyzing trade data. Kevin used this software to track portfolio greeks, one of which was Gamma. So the software code-named Zero Gamma.
