Why Use iPad Apps

With spread betting you can trade on both rising and falling markets and there are normally no commissions or broker fees (although there are small rolling fees if you keep a ‘daily’ trade open over night).

You can trade global markets such as stock indices, forex, shares, commodities, bonds etc., for a more in-depth guide see spread betting.

With iPads becoming increasingly ubiquitous, the financial spread betting apps enable traders to keep on top of market movements, news and events.

The applications also exploit the larger screen offered by the iPad (compared with smart phones).

Naturally most apps let users switch between both landscape and portrait views as well as offering attractive graphics, fast and easy to use navigation.

Some apps like the InterTrader app below, offer one-click trading.
