“Rival's unique software was made and designed by traders for traders. That makes a huge difference for those of us who spent most of our careers on custom-built, proprietary trading systems. And it's the reason why at the demo and since deploying it, this system felt much more comfortable, intuitive and user-friendly than the other systems included in the search.”

- Rod Valeroso, Agricultural Options Trader, Budo Group Agricultural Options Trading Desk
