IG Markets, a subsidiary of IG Group and one of Australia’s leading CFD providers has launched a new trading app for Android devices.
The new app is a welcomed addition to the company’s existing suite of mobile functionality which includes iPhone, BlackBerry and Nokia apps.
With the new free Android app, IG Markets’ clients can place CFD trades on a range of markets including forex, shares, stock indices, commodities and options, view real-time balance information, along with their open positions and watch-lists. Prospective traders can also access live market data as well as open an account using the app.
Tamas Szabo, head of IG Markets, Asia Pacific said in the release: “The popularity of the Android smartphone has been extraordinary, and we’re thrilled to be able to pass this increased functionality on to so many of our clients… In June 2011 we released Australia’s first iPhone App offering DMA CFDs, allowing traders to trade inside the market spread and straight into the order book of global exchanges, as well as view full market depth and liquidity.”
Kantar’s ComTech WorldPanel says Android is the leading Australian smartphone in the market, with a 42.9 per cent share of all smartphones sold in Australia in a 12 weeks span leading up to August 7th.
