One way:
find . -name 'TRADE*.gz' > file.tmp
echo 'ftp -n <<EOF' > myscript.sh
echo 'open remotebox ' >> myscript.sh
echo 'USER username passwd' >> myscript.sh
echo 'verbose' >> myscript.sh
while read fname
   echo "  put $fname"
done < file.tmp >> myscript.sh
echo " bye" >> myscript.sh
echo "EOF" >> myscript.sh
chmod +x myscript.sh
./myscript.sh  > myscript.log
