Rent a Signal is one of the smaller signal/trade following providers in the market. The group behind the firm, operating out of Spain, is the same that also manages forex-tsd and forexppc. Apparently the service is going to be discontinued within days – the reason is not known however it’s not hard to guess that the service wasn’t profitable. According to our sources Rent a Signal (a NFA member, IB and CTA) staff is now discontinuing its current retail business to focus its resources on new related business, the details of which we should soon be able to announce.
Other companies active in the space are Tradency, Zulutrade, Collective2, social networks such as Currensee and TradeO and brokers such as eToro.
