The latest version of Swissquote – Mobile Banking and Trading Solution implements the Fast Trade feature, enhances Apple Watch functionalities, and informs traders when they are close to one of the Swissquote Lounges.

Swiss provider of online financial and trading services Swissquote Group Holding SA (SWX:SQN) has just rolled out an enhanced version of its Mobile Banking and Trading Solution, bringing various new features, including ones concerning Apple Watch and Swissquote’s social network Pulse.

Version 7.1 of the application for iOS devices enables its users to trade directly from Apple Watch. This marks a significant improvement compared to what usually “trading” apps on Apple Watch allow traders to do – get notifications and check account status.

In April 2015, Swissquote announced the integration of the application with Apple Watch, as the craze around the accessory was growing. Explaining the rationale behind the move, the company then noted the increasing volume of trades conducted via mobile applications. Swissquote was the first Swiss bank to launch an application for Apple Watch. It was also the first Swiss bank to roll out a trading application for iPhone in 2008.

The latest version of Swissquote’s mobile app also adds the Fast Trade function. FinanceFeeds has already reported of the pending rollout of the feature. Fast Trade allows users of the mobile application to compute automatically their orders based on a template, where they can set the percentage of their price based on the last price.

The other enhancements to the mobile applications concern the social aspect of trading. Pulse, the social network for Swissquote clients, now offers the ability to edit a message and manage the Trending period.

Even more interestingly, users of the app may now get notifications when they pass near a Swissquote Lounge. These lounges allow getting to know Swissquote better. In the lounges, traders can access direct stock market information in a relaxed atmosphere, read the financial press, find out more about the company’s services or simply enjoy a cup of coffee. Swissquote Lounges are a place for discussion forums and seminars, providing an exclusive meeting place for sharing one’s trading experiences with others.
