Traders can see the daily change in pips on the rates screen.

Online trading services provider OANDA Corporation has just updated its OANDA fxTrade Forex Trading mobile app for iOS-based devices, with the latest version (5.5.12) of the solution introducing enhancements to the rates screen.

Traders can now see what markets are closed (greyed out with a clock icon). They can also see the daily change in pips on the rates screen.

Let’s mention that the company has fixed a number of bugs in this release of the app.

It has been a while since OANDA updated its iOS app. Noteworthy enhancements include the introduction of SMA Price Signals in June 2018. This feature enabled traders to configure a Simple Moving Average to send them a push notification when it crosses the current price.

The OANDA fxTrade app for iOS gadgets offers traders access to live, real-time prices to trade major, minor and exotic instruments on the world’s top financial CFD, forex, and precious metals markets. Users can trade flexible lot sizes with competitive spreads supporting multiple sub-accounts.

Users of the app can trade faster and easier from a single view placing orders directly on the chart.

The solution also offers more than 50 technical tools, including 32 overlay indicators, 11 drawing tools, and 9 charts to easily edit your take profit, stop loss and trailing stop orders.

Traders can manage positions, control risk, and monitor account profitability in one touch to react to market activity in real-time wherever they are. The users of the app can also benefit from automated custom notifications on price alerts, order expiry, upcoming economic calendar events, and global market news from leading providers.
