The popularity of the iPhone has been nothing short of phenomenal. Since we launched our award-winning browser optimised for the handset in 2009, our mobile offering is becoming second-to-none with this latest release.
Melbourne, Victoria (PRWEB) June 01, 2011
Contract for Difference (CFD) trading company, IG Markets, has released its new app update, offering Direct Market Access (DMA) share CFD trading from your iPhone. It is the very first iPhone app in Australia to offer this functionality. Available free of charge from the app store, the application offers clients a range of facilities on top of the new DMA access, including the ability to place trades, see prices on the full range of markets, load real-time charts and also receive breaking news headlines from Reuters.
Tamas Szabo, Chief Executive of IG Markets Australia is excited about IG Markets’ leading innovation. “The popularity of the iPhone has been nothing short of phenomenal. Since we launched our award-winning browser optimised for the handset in 2009, our mobile offering is becoming second-to-none with this latest release.”
“At IG Markets, we are committed to offering our clients cutting-edge tools for their CFD trading. We achieve this not only through providing great value through market-leading platform and quality pricing, but also through industry innovation. We are thrilled to be the first CFD provider in Australia to launch this feature on an iPhone app,” Mr Szabo said.
IG Markets’ app has been extremely popular; during the first month alone, thousands of iPhone users have begun trading on-the-go. After its release, many clients have requested certain additions to the app. IG Markets recognised these and released new functionality allowing users to fund their accounts directly through the app. And now IG Markets is the first CFD provider to bring DMA access to the iPhone, giving traders the ability to:
- Trade directly into the order book using DMA
- View open DMA CFD positions, including the fill status of each individual position
