OANDA Revolutionizes Mobile Trading with fxTrade Mobile 4.0
|By Business Wire
|July 23, 2014 06:01 AM EDT
OANDA, a global provider of innovative forex
trading services, is pleased to announce the first phase of its
Mobile trading application. Beginning with new, industry-first
features to its proprietary application for the Apple iPad, OANDA is
moving away from a “one-size-fits-all” approach to mobile trading.
Available now for free download in the App
Store, OANDA’s fxTrade Mobile 4.0 for iPad features unlimited
charts, the ability for individual traders to arrange charts however
they wish, and the ability to view charts in full-screen mode.
“We're redefining the way investors are trading on mobile, moving toward
customization based on each trader's experience and trading strategies.
We started with the iPad, as it’s the tablet with the highest market
penetration and the most screen real estate,” said Reuben Piryatinsky,
Mobile Product Manager, OANDA Corporation. “We're confident this new
approach to trading will help us maintain our industry-leading position
in the mobile space.”
OANDA’s mobile team will continue to release more customizable features,
specific to individual trading styles, in the coming months. New
elements in fxTrade Mobile will add to its existing advanced charting
functionality with multiple chart types and more than 40 technical
analysis indicators, overlays, and drawing capabilities, streaming news
feeds, and push notifications for limit orders, stop-loss and
take-profit actions, margin notifications, and price alerts.
“We were the first broker to release a tablet trading app and so much
has changed in four years. At the time, our goal was to match the
desktop feature set but we’ve already eclipsed that and have more rich
features available for mobile," said Trevor Young, Vice President of
Product Management, OANDA Corporation. “We are also seeing increased
volumes coming through mobile: in 2010, it accounted for two or three
percent of total volume and today it is closer to 20 percent.”
Today, more than 50 percent of OANDA’s clients log-in to their accounts
via fxTrade Mobile. Like OANDA’s MetaTrader 4 mobile applications for iPhone
smartphones and tablets, and OANDA’s Currency Converter for iPhone,
touch, and Android
devices, fxTrade Mobile is available to download for free.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be.
We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
