OANDA Boosts Advanced Technical Analysis Features in fxTrade Mobile


In a world that’s increasingly going mobile, forex traders can now draw trend lines, chart patterns, and identify support and resistance levels on currencies and financial instruments while they’re on the go

NEW YORK – August 20, 2013

OANDA, a pioneering global provider of innovative foreign exchange trading services, today announced enhancements to the advanced technical analysis features built-in to the industry-leading fxTrade Mobile applications for iPhone, iPad, and Android smartphones and tablets.

With these new features added to fxTrade Mobile 3.2, OANDA’s clients can now draw trend lines, mark chart patterns, and identify support and resistance levels on currencies and financial instruments anywhere they go, at any time.

“With the release of fxTrade Mobile 3.2 not only is OANDA maintaining its leadership in mobile forex trading capabilities, we’re bringing traders even closer to the full desktop version of our award-winning fxTrade platform on a mobile device,” said Trevor Young, Vice President of Product Management, OANDA. “We know from the feedback we’ve received from OANDA’s clients, and from their mobile trading behavior, that they want a robust platform at their fingertips. They want to be able to do more than merely check on their positions or to take a peek at the latest currency pair spreads. By providing our clients with superior technical analysis functionality, we’re responding to that demand.”

Furthermore, fxTrade Mobile 3.2 provides traders with the ability to draw more advanced things such as Fibonacci Fans, Arcs, and Pivot Points. The latest version of the app also features Japanese language support.

This update builds on recent enhancements to the app released in July that included the addition of several new chart types, indicators, and the Ichimoku overlay designed to help traders identify trends in the market.
