Nov 16, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Fidelity Investments announced the release of new, redesigned brokerage apps for iPhone, iPod touch and Android smartphones, available for free from the App Store and Google Play, respectively.
According to a release, both apps' new features include customizable tile-based home screen options for key market data, top gainers and losers, personalized watch lists, accounts and more. Quotes can turn into interactive charts with technical indicators when rotated into landscape view, and customers can stay connected to breaking market and company news with film-strip style headlines and streaming market videos updated four times daily.
"Investors simply cannot be untied from the market when it's on the move," said Richard Blunck, executive vice president, digital distribution at Fidelity. "The demand for sophisticated mobile solutions is increasing and Fidelity is answering that challenge with our Next Generation mobile apps that give investors real-time analysis, research and trading tools in the palm of their hand."
As described by the Company, the Next Generation brokerage apps for iPhone, iPod touch and Android smartphones feature the following new functionality, in addition to the apps' trading and portfolio management tools:
-Customizable Home Screens: Nine customizable home screen options give customers access to the information that's most important to them. Select tile-based screens include a customer's watch list in heat map view, U.S. Markets, World Markets and Market Movers.
-Advanced Charting: From a quote screen, rotate to landscape mode to access a fully interactive chart. Customers can layer technical indicators onto the chart (e.g. moving average, exponential moving average) or compare the performance of two securities.
-News & Video: An all new news experience, complete with market update videos scheduled four times daily, and film-strip style news articles containing relevant companies.
-Alerts: A message center for streaming alerts4 where customers can view and manage price triggers and receive trade notifications.
