CHICAGO, Oct. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ChartIQ, the leader in social and mobile stock charting, today launched real-time iPad® stock and forex charts, based on market data from Barchart. Customers can now subscribe to real-time equity and forex feeds directly through ChartIQ Pro on their iPad and receive live, streaming stock charts anytime, anywhere.
Apple® iPads have untethered investors from their desktop, allowing traders to participate more frequently in market activity. ChartIQ is the first charting software with advanced analysis capabilities that is fully optimized for iPads, in addition to the web. With these new, affordable data feeds, traders can now have access to real-time, intraday stock and forex charts directly from their iPad.
"ChartIQ are pioneers bringing a new, innovative application to an industry that has long found working from desktops to be a barrier. Having mobility allows traders to always have a pulse on the market and act quickly when the opportunity arises," said Eero Pikat, President of Barchart. "ChartIQ represents the new guard in mobile stock charting, and Barchart is excited to be their trusted data provider."
"Barchart is an established leader in market data delivery, and offers both the high-quality and cloud delivery model we need," said Dan Schleifer, President of ChartIQ. "Our users expect the best iPad stock chart apps and the best data to make their trading decisions; Barchart completes that equation for us."
Existing ChartIQ Pro users will continue to receive free end-of-day stock data, also supplied by Barchart, but can now elect to add on real-time stock and forex data subscriptions, starting at $9/month.
An extraordinary transformation in investor technology is underway. Mobile and social investing are overturning old models just as the Internet did over a decade ago. ChartIQ has developed charting software with social charting, mobile optimization and an advanced toolset geared towards technical traders.
