TradeStation Group introduces Crypto IRA
TradeStation announced today that TradeStation Crypto, Inc. customers can now own cryptocurrency as an alternative investment in a Self-Directed Individual Retirement Arrangement (IRA). With a Self-Directed IRA, customers can decide to buy cryptocurrency to further diversify their retirement assets maintained in their IRAs.

TradeStation’s Self-Directed IRA provides flexibility for individuals and investment advisers who aim to achieve greater diversification by including access to cryptocurrency.
In response to customers’ increasing interest in crypto, this new arrangement will allow customers to gain additional exposure to digital assets as an alternative investment.
With a TradeStation Self-Directed IRA customers can:
- Invest in crypto, stocks, options, and futures
- Trade crypto with no crypto custody fees
- Get the tax advantages of IRA accounts when buying or selling crypto holdings
- Take advantage of TradeStation’s crypto platform and tools
