LONDON, June 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
For investors looking to trade part-time, could a mobile trading app be the answer to staying on top of the latest developments in the financial markets?
More and more, we are seeing investors combine their full-time work and home life with part-time trading.
Through financial spread betting, investors can not only take a position on over 12,000 financial instruments; but trade from virtually anywhere, at any time either at their desk, online or through a mobile trading app.
Financial Spread Betting Part-Time
As a part-time investor, financial spread betting offers a level of access and flexibility that cannot be gained through more traditional forms of trading.
Through spread betting provider City Index, you can access your account and trading platform 24-hours a day, 7-days a week.
This enables you to trade on markets such as the UK 100, even when the underlying financial instrument is closed for trading.
Below, we look at how a mobile trading app could mean the difference between a profitable trade; and a losing one.
Trade from your Mobile
City Index has seen key developments in how their clients trade the financial markets in recent years.
In October 2009, less than 2% of their clients placed trades through their mobile devices; skip forward to 2012, and the total volume of trades placed through a mobile device total around 20% of their active clients - with close to 85% of those being through an iPhone trading app.
With one in three clients trading on-the-move this makes for more opportunities for investors both new and experienced.
