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.

In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Derek Collison, founder and CEO of Apcera, explained what policy is, he showed how policy should be arch...
