New Mobile Trading App Called iBroker™

CHICAGO, December 6, 2011 – New smartphone app teams up with futures commission merchant PFGBEST to give traders instant access to valuable trading tools, moving trading out of the office and onto the mobile scene.

Madrid-based firm TradingMotion has teamed up with futures commission merchant PFGBEST to provide the brokerage's clients with enhanced mobile trading via the iBroker mobile application. The application is designed to merge the seamless controls and layout of popular mobile devices like the iPhone and iPad with a powerful trading platform and impressive digital display. Supported by Mac OS, Android and Windows devices, the application allows clients to remotely get the data they need and make the decisions they want with a few quick taps on their phone or tablet, backed by the sterling support of the PFGBEST team.

Spearheading the development process was Jon Berrojalbiz, founder of TradingMotion. Berrojalbiz connected with PFGBEST in April, and the wheels were put in motion to roll out a joint venture.

PFGBEST President and COO Russ Wasendorf, Jr., a long-time proponent of innovative mobile trading applications for a wide array of asset classes, said, "PFGBEST is currently the only futures commission merchant firm that has integrated iBroker into its proprietary front- and back-office systems. Those using the iBroker app can have messages sent to customers who wish to be notified when buy or sell triggers are reached, extending our on-demand technology solutions for brokers and advisors."

The development of iBroker presents a unique opportunity to futures brokers looking for access to the mobile trading world. With a cleaner display, more functions and enhanced navigability, iBroker has the edge over the competition, and can give futures brokers the ability to connect with their customers on the go. Working with iBroker's team of connection specialists, iBroker can connect a broker's existing trading platform to their clients' mobile devices at no cost to the broker, bringing increased convenience to their clients within minutes of downloading the app. The application is available for download in the Apple App Store, Android Market, and Windows Marketplace.
