Traders spend more than $1 million to develop the first real-time instant connection to global financial markets
NEW YORK, Sept. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Investing.com today introduces a new, powerful, all-encompassing trading tool with the release of its free app for Android. The first-of-its-kind app provides access to real-time quotes and charts, tools and analysis that would typically be available only by subscription, giving users free real-time access to global financial markets no matter where they are located. With an investment of more than $1 million from the founders (all real traders), the research and development of this app shores up Investing.com's position as the best working office for traders and investors.
Investing.com's engineers and traders, all of whom were utterly dissatisfied with all other mobile options available to everyday investors, spent 18 months creating and designing the Investing.com mobile app for Android. It is designed not only to provide streaming quotes for all financial sectors, including indices and stocks, ETFs, bonds, commodities, currencies and futures, but also to provide access to users' individual portfolios. Emphasis was placed on features such as speed, visual appeal and ease of use, making the all-inclusive new app ideal for the everyday trader and investor.
"We found that of all the finance apps on the market, not one offered the tools investors needed on a real time streaming basis to move just as fast as the markets do yet with a simple and friendly user interface. We're handing Ferrari keys to people who were driving tricycles," says Investing.com CEO Dror Efrat.
App users benefit from Investing.com's broad array of tools, including the site's industry-leading live economic calendar, so traders and investors are immediately in the know about market-moving announcements and events. The site's breaking news and timely market analysis – also available via the new app – enhance the trading experience by providing additional market intelligence and trading strategies. Plus, app users can easily build, customize and track their portfolios and gain access to Investing.com's cutting edge real-time charts and technical analysis.
"We wanted our app to make it simple for our audience to stay connected to markets even when untethered from laptops and terminals and away from home or office," Efrat says. "Using Investing.com on a mobile device, anyone can follow more than 30,000 financial instruments traded on more than 70 global exchanges."
The Investing.com app for Android can be downloaded right now at the Google Play store and will be available initially in six languages.
