OANDA enhances notifications, alerts in fxTrade mobile app
The updated app for iOS devices offers better control over OANDA Alerts and enables traders to get notifications when a target price is hit in their V20 accounts.
Online trading and financial technology services provider OANDA has just released the latest version of its mobile application for iOS devices. Version 5.4.3 of the OANDA fxTrade Forex Trading app offers enhancements that focus on alerts and notifications.
For starters, the updated application allows better control over OANDA Alerts. Traders can optionally request only highlights for any category, cutting down the number of alerts they receive.
Also, traders can now get notified when a target price is reached in their V20 accounts. If they add a Horizontal Line, or Vector Drawing Tool to a chart, and then tap the new Price Signal icon – they will be notified when the price crosses the Drawing Tool.
In May this year, OANDA introduced a number of V20-related enhancements to its mobile application for Android devices too. These included making all Trade Default types available on v20 accounts, as well as on older accounts.
Talking of V20, we cannot skip to mention the latest version of the MultiCharts platform, which added OANDA V20 REST API support. The OANDA v20 REST API secures programmatic access to OANDA’s next generation v20 trading engine. Anyone with a V20 trading account may use this API. The Trading Interface is selected in OANDA data feed settings in MultiCharts’ tool for database management QuoteManager. It is global and affects the data feed and all existing OANDA broker profiles.
OANDA has been regularly updating its mobile trading applications, with one of the foci of the latest updates being chart trading. In May, the OANDA fxTrade Forex Trading app for iOS devices allowed traders to obtain additional information about their trades from the chart. More precisely, they got to see their trade’s PL on the chart (at the top of the mobile device screen).
Another aspect of OANDA’s mobile application development is the push towards receiving users’ feedback on existing and new functionalities, as well as simplifying the process of submitting this feedback. iPhone owners can use the Feedback button on the More tab to do this, whereas owners of Android-based phones and tablets can use the Feedback button in the More tab and in the Accounts panel, respectively.
