Mobile trading app allows you to trade where you are, when you want
TORONTO, May 10, 2012 /CNW/ - Scotiabank has launched its new Scotia iTRADE®1 mobile trading app, giving customers on-the-go the ability to make equity and option trades and manage their own investments with real time market data2 right from their smart phones.
The mobile version of its popular online trading service allows Scotia iTRADE customers to track, review and trade their investments from beyond the desktop or laptop and is compatible with many smart phone devices3.
"Our new Scotia iTRADE app provides customers with the same quality experience as our online portal no matter where they are, and that's putting trading power right in the palm of your hand," said James Stares, Director, Product Strategy at Scotia iTRADE. "With today's busy lifestyles, there's a need to multitask; and when it comes to financial decisions, it's crucial for our customers to have access to the marketplace whenever and however they need it."
The Scotia iTRADE app has been created with seamless integration in mind. Users familiar with the online trading suite will find it offers the same intuitive and user-friendly format, but with enhanced functions that:
- Provide access to personal account balances and holdings
- Allow clients to view open orders and charts, as well as sync watch lists, get quotes, option chains and review market news - all in real time
- Execute equity, ETF and options trades
- Allow personalization of the app and its icons to best suit customers' trading needs
Scotia iTRADE was the first self-directed brokerage in Canada to offer commission-free4 online trading of ETFs, equity trades from as low as $6.99 - $9.995, and up to 100 free trades6. To kick off the launch of the new mobile app, Scotia iTRADE is offering new customers the opportunity to qualify for up to $150 cash7, as well as up to 50 free trades. Download the app and get one free equity trade and one free option trade.8
Built on a secure platform, customer transactions and information linked to the Scotia iTRADE mobile app are as secure as when customers access the same information from either a desktop or laptop.
