LONDON, October 20, 2011 -

Recent research revealed more than 70 percent of the spread betting industry’s traders had either used a smartphone to trade or planned to do so during 2011. Mobile trading has clearly come a long way since City Index launched City Trading™ - the first live spread betting and CFD trading app - back in 2009.

City Index has since been voted ‘Best Mobile Trading Platform’ at the 2010 and 2011 MoneyAM Online Finance Awards. Joshua Raymond, the company’s Chief Market Strategist, said: “We dedicate a huge amount of resources to mobile trading technology because we understand the value of our clients being able to trade whenever they want, wherever they are. Being first to market a live trading application for iPhone™ and Android mobile devices and the continual upgrading of our mobile platforms is testament to that dedication.”

The latest version of City Trading features newsfeeds from Dow Jones Newswires and live streaming charts developed by City Index’s trading technology specialists.
