LMAX, the retail foreign exchange (FX) and contracts for difference (CFD) trading venue, has launched the mobile exchange LMAX Trader for iPhone and BlackBerry mobile devices. The mobile dealing app for trading clients allows users with an iPhone or BlackBerry mobile device to stay updated with the markets, view their LMAX Trader account status, and manage their positions and orders across multiple asset classes.
LMAX Trader enables clients to trade on the move via an easy to navigate interface, allowing for convenient access to their portfolios. The app will be rolled out to other mobile device operating systems in the coming months.
“Increasing investor sophistication combined with highly mobile lifestyles has meant that more people want to take control of their investment decisions on the go and therefore need instant access to financial markets and their portfolios,” said Martin Thompson, chief technology officer (CTO) of LMAX. “Our platform offers a neutral and transparent exchange model delivered via market-leading technology, both key differentiators in a competitive market where investors demand solutions that deliver results.”
