Fidelity Investments has introduced a brokerage trading application complete with real-time news and quotes, interactive charting and watch lists for the iPhone and iPod Touch. The program lets users trade stocks, options, exchange-traded funds and mutual funds.
“At Fidelity, we recognize the growing popularity of the iPhone and iPod touch, and, in fact, nearly half of the customers using our current mobile trading application, Fidelity Mobile, log in from an iPhone,” said James C. Burton, president of Fidelity’s retail brokerage business. “Our new app takes full advantage of the revolutionary technologies of iPhone and iPod Touch to allow us to deliver powerful trading and account management services in a very user-friendly format.”
Fidelity is rolling out the new technology in conjunction with its recently announced $7.95 online trades and free trades for 25 iShares exchange-traded funds.
