LONDON, February 24, 2011 - Only a few years ago, the financial spread bettor was chained to his
computer to make his trades. The moment he stepped away, access to the spread
betting providers such as City Index ( was
completely lost. If any sudden changes happened in the markets, the spread
bettor was powerless to react, possibly resulting in the loss of potential

All this changed in 2009 when City Index introduced City Trading(TM), its
first spread betting and CFD trading iPhone(TM) app, allowing users to trade
whatever, wherever and whenever they wanted to.

In addition to trading, iPhone spread betting apps also facilitate market
analysis, allowing you to keep up-to-date with price movements, charting and
financial news in your spare moments. This kind of research is at the heart
of both technical analysis and fundamental analysis in financial spread
betting (, and can go some way to
ensuring your trading is based on analysis rather than instinct.

Along with the additional freedom and opportunities that iPhone spread
betting has introduced, it has also created a need for some traders to adapt
their spread betting styles accordingly. Market Strategist Joshua Raymond
commented: "The concept behind mobile dealing is to increase your potential
to access prices whenever you want. The disadvantage could be that the more
you look at prices moving, the higher is the potential for you to make
impulse trades without proper research and analysis."

Since launching the app, City Index has been named 'Best Mobile Trading
Platform' at the 2010 Money AM Online Finance Awards and the City Trading(TM)
application has been downloaded thousands of times. It seems like iPhone
spread betting is here to stay.
