Fast, secure, and a whole new way to connect to your portfolio
VANCOUVER, Sept. 14, 2011 /CNW/ - Today Credential Direct announced the
launch of their new mobile site that allows online traders to quickly
and easily access their trading accounts from their favourite mobile
devices. The site is optimized for all the latest platforms on Apple,
Android and Blackberry smart phones, and can be accessed as safely and
securely as Credential Direct's online trading platform.
The new Credential Direct mobile site is an extension of the firm's
comprehensive investment trading site (credentialdirect.com), ranked Canada's top online brokerage six times since 2004.
"Credential Direct Mobile is a whole new way for users to connect to
their portfolio on-the-go," said Credential Direct's Chief Executive
Officer, Doce Tomic.
The new site offers traders a mobile view into world markets and the
ability to get detailed real-time quotes and alerts, place trades, and
follow their portfolio and transactions all from the palm of their
hand. It also features multiple layers of security to keep investors
protected while trading online.
"Credential Direct Mobile truly gives traders the opportunity to take
advantage of rapidly changing markets with up-to-the-second
information," added Tomic. "Not only does it offer great functionality,
it features thoughtfully developed mobile navigation, making surfing
the site intuitive and fast.
"With such a compelling and competitive service, there is no reason for
all our customers not to start enjoying the convenience and flexibility
of using their smart phones to follow the markets and trade on
Credential Direct now."
Credential Direct Mobile is among the first mobile trading platforms to
launch in Canada. Credential Direct was founded in 2000 by Canada's
credit union system and is a division of Credential Securities, which
is a Canadian Investor Protection Fund (CIPF) member. At Credential
Direct, there are no lofty account or trade minimums or hidden fees —
just low, flat fees for everyone. You do not need to be a member of a
credit union to open an account.
