TORONTO, June 4, 2012 /CNW/ - Today, Questrade launches IQ Web and IQ Edge, web and desktop trading software compatible with PCs and Macs. The
software is available free of charge to all Questrade clients, and
includes free live streaming U.S. market data from Nasdaq. The
platforms also include free snap quotes for real-time Canadian data
from TSX and TSX-Venture.
IQ Mobile, compatible with Apple, Android, and Blackberry, will be available in

by early autumn.
Edward Kholodenko, President and CEO of Questrade says: " We're
leveraging the latest technology to deliver an unparalleled personal
trading environment. We designed IQ to be flexibile so any style of
investor can adapt the platform to suit their needs. Some of our
clients want a streamlined solution. They want a powerful engine,
absolutely, but for trading, they need something straight-forward and
accessible anywhere over the internet. That's IQ Web. Or they can take
advantage of the pro-level tools in IQ Edge, our desktop version, and
experience a high-performance trading machine. It's the democratization
of trading - everyone can define their own path to success. And because
we're Questrade, the platforms are completely free."
