Leading contracts for difference broker IG Markets has announced the rollout of its Australian mobile CFD platform, enabling its Australian clients to execute trades on the move via their iPhone handsets.

IG Markets, one of the world’s foremost CFD brokers, has announced the launch of an Australian version of its successful iPhone CFD trading platform, enabling Australian clients the same freedom as UK clients in trading CFDs and following the markets on the move.

The trading app, designed for use with the iPhone, is freely available to download from the Apple AppStore, and provides mobile access to CFD markets through a specially tailored mobile platform, enabling fast, responsive trading to meet the demands of the modern trader.

The trading app allows users to access the full functionality of their trading account, from price data, real-time charts across a variety of markets and even the latest news headlines as they unfold, in a bid to make CFD trading more convenient and accessible.

The move follows on as a progression from the IG Markets mobile-optimised trading browser, which had previously enabled clients to transact via their mobile smartphones through a specifically tailored browser.

Chief Executive Tamas Szabo said that the mobile CFD platform was an ‘exciting new feature’, indicative of IG Markets’ commitment to ‘offering clients the very best trading tools to help them with their CFD trading.’

It is projected that the app, similar to those released in other territories, will help improve trader loyalty and attract a new breed of CFD traders to IG Markets.
