We are thrilled to be the first CFD provider in Singapore to launch this feature on an iPhone app
Singapore (PRWEB) June 01, 2011
Contract for Difference (CFD) trading company, IG Markets, has released a new iPhone app update, offering Direct Market Access (DMA) share CFD trading from clients’ iPhones. This is the very first iPhone app in Singapore to provide this feature. Available free of charge from Apple’s app store, the application offers clients a suite of features on top of the new DMA access, including the ability to open, close and manage trades, view live prices on the full range of markets, load real-time charts and read news headlines from Reuters.
Peter McDermott -Managing Director of IG Markets in Singapore - is excited about IG Markets’ latest innovation. “The popularity of our iPhone app in Singapore is incredible. Since we launched our award-winning browser optimised for the handset in 2009, our mobile offering has remained second-to-none. That’s a position we’re maintaining with this latest release.”
“At IG Markets, we are committed to offering our clients cutting-edge tools for their CFD trading, with our technology custom-built in-house. We provide great value through our market-leading platform, quality pricing and customer service, but also through industry innovation. We are thrilled to be the first CFD provider in Singapore to launch this feature on an iPhone app,” Mr McDermott said.
IG Markets’ app has been extremely popular, with a sizeable percentage of iPhone users already trading on-the-go. Following its release, many clients requested certain additions to the app. In response, IG Markets built and released a new feature to allow users to fund their accounts directly through the app, before now becoming the first CFD provider to bring DMA access to the iPhone app.
The app allows traders to:
- Trade directly into the order book using DMA
- View open DMA CFD positions, including the fill status of each individual position
- Trade IG Markets’ wide range of instruments – with forex, commodities and over 7000 global shares, including over 300 Singapore shares
- Open and close CFD positions through DMA
- Edit and delete working orders
- Add Limits and Stops, including Guaranteed Stops
- View customisable watchlists
- View real-time account balances and deposit funds
