OANDA Adds Chinese Language Support to fxTrade Mobile


Global forex broker enhances industry-leading mobile app for Chinese investors

SINGAPORE – February 18, 2014

OANDA, a pioneering global provider of innovative foreign exchange trading services, today announced the addition of Chinese language support to the fxTrade Mobile applications for iPhone, iPad, and Android smartphones and tablets.

With the award-winning fxTrade Mobile platform, forex traders can utilize advanced technical analysis features, quickly view market activity, manage their positions, control risk, and monitor their account status and profitability while on the go. Designed with a sleek user interface that allows for easy navigation and customizable options to suit traders’ individual needs, the cutting-edge trading app also provides charting functionality and full visibility into price action from a single screen, with the continuous display of current prices even while manipulating chart parameters.

“Currency trading in the retail space is increasingly moving from the desktop to the handset; in fact, in December 2013 as many as 51% of our customer logins came from our mobile trading platforms and that percentage was higher in some predominantly Chinese-speaking markets,” said Trevor Young, Vice-President of Product Management, OANDA Corporation. “As an industry leader in the mobile forex space, and realizing that demand from our clients in addition to the growing demand from Asian economies, adding Chinese language support was a clear priority for us and we are happy to deliver that today.”

Key features of OANDA’s fxTrade Mobile 3.3.2 include:

  • Advanced charting functionality featuring multiple chart types and more than 40 technical analysis indicators, overlays, and drawing capabilities for enhanced price-data analysis and identifying trends in the market
  • Customizable charts in a range of intervals (five seconds to one day)
  • Streaming news feeds from Dow Jones (in Chinese)
  • Push notifications for limit orders, stop-loss and take-profit actions, margin notifications, and price alerts

Like OANDA’s MetaTrader 4 mobile applications for iPhone and Android smartphones and tablets, and OANDA’s Currency Converter for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Android devices, fxTrade Mobile is a free download.
