Interactive Brokers has recently introduced a new free iPhone application that allows users to view global quotes across multiple asset classes including forex, stocks, options, futures, and bonds. This application is available to customers as well as non-customers. Customers have the added feature of real-time trading and account monitoring capabilities just as they can from a regular computer.
Increasing participation in currency markets means more users want to keep in touch with the value of the dollar, euro and Japanese yen, which is why IB has now made real-time forex quotes available by using the App. The iTWS Application is available for free download at the App Store. Users can also receive real-time price alerts not just on currency pairs and stocks but also on any electronically traded futures or options contract around the globe.
