IG’s DailyFX mobile app for iOS devices goes live

The DailyFX mobile app for iOS-based gadgets went live today.

A follow-up to FinanceFeeds’ article about IG Group Holdings plc (LON:IGG) testing a DailyFX mobile application… Today, IG’s DailyFX mobile app for iOS devices went live.

The DailyFX app aims to offer the key functionalities of the web services many traders are familiar with. This means that traders get access to technical analysis and real-time commentary from IG’s analysts and stay close to the markets with live currency quotes. A live newsfeed, a global economic calendar and daily session briefings are among the features available in the new application.

In addition, traders can keep track of their preferred markets thanks to customisable watchlists.

This is an important step for the development of DailyFX, whose $40 million acquisition by IG was announced back in September 2016. IG acquired the Forex news and research website from FXCM. There have not been many announcements around DailyFX lately, apart from the recent announcement by Global Brokerage Inc (NASDAQ:GLBR) that it will halt advertising on the website.

In the meantime, IG keeps enhancing its new web trading platform. The latest set of improvements focus on technical analysis and charting. In response to requests, the company has added Elliott Waves tool to the new platform charts, whereas a couple of small additions have been made to both the Fibonacci drawings and Ichimoku indicators. On Fibonacci drawings, the last click to place the drawing enables traders to select the length of the drawing on the chart (that is, how far across the chart the levels are visible). On the Ichimoku indicator, traders can now also customise which levels are shown. In addition, a set of keyboard shortcuts have been introduced.

The IG Trading mobile app for iOS devices got a small update with regard to funding capabilities in the end of June. Users of the solution can now fund and withdraw from their IG account via PayPal.
