In 2009, financial spread betting provider City Index introduced its first spread betting and CFD trading iPhone app. Back then, no one knew if mobile trading would be embraced by the spread betting community, or seen as just another fad.
Since then, the company has been named 'Best Mobile Trading Platform' at numerous awards and the application has been downloaded thousands of times.
In addition to actual trading, iPhone spread betting apps also facilitate market analysis, allowing you to keep up-to-date with price movements, charting and financial news in your spare moments.
This kind of research is at the heart of both technical analysis and fundamental analysis in financial spread betting, and can go some way to ensuring your trading is based on analysis rather than instinct.
iPhone Spread Betting - Trading Styles
Along with the additional freedom and opportunities that iPhone spread betting has introduced, it has also created a need for some traders to adapt their spread betting styles accordingly.
Market Strategist Joshua Raymond commented: "The concept behind mobile dealing is to increase your potential to access prices whenever you want. The disadvantage could be that the more you look at prices moving, the higher is the potential for you to make impulse trades without proper research and analysis."
This makes careful market analysis and a thorough spread betting strategy at least as vital - if not even more so - to iPhone spread betting as it is to any other form of financial trading.
iPhone Spread Betting Apps
Of course as of 2015 most of the large firms of spread betting apps for the iPhone:
Spreadex has expanded its product range with the launch of a spread betting iPhone app.
Developed completely in-house, the app has been designed to be super-fast, ultra-secure and simple-to-use and is compatible with the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
The app, which is free to download from the app store, allows users to open, close and edit financial positions, set orders to open, use the company’s charting facilities and manage their account on the move.

UK Spreadex Marketing Communications Manager Andy MacKenzie said: “There are many financial spread betting apps on the market, but we’ve taken time to make sure our app operates smoothly and safely and is as straightforward as possible for traders to use.
“The recent market volatility has highlighted how important it is for financial spread bettors to be in control of their trading wherever they are and this app allows Spreadex clients to manage their account from their phone while on the go.”
The spread betting app is also fully customisable allowing users to create their own watchlists or shortcuts to key financial markets they have an interest in.
For those keen on day trading or share trading, the app allows clients to view market movements on the day in either percentage or points terms.
