ChartIQ Integrates With StockTwits Unveiling First-of-Its-Kind Social Stock Charting iPad App

New Partnership Allows Charting to Go Social and Mobile on the iPad

CORONADO, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 26, 2012) - StockTwits, the largest, real-time social network for investors and traders, and ChartIQ, the leader in iPad stock and forex charts, today announced the launch of ChartIQ's integrated social stock charting experience for the iPad. Now investors can browse, analyze, and share stock charts directly from their iPad, while participating in the largest online finance conversation.

"Analyzing, sharing, and discussing stock charts is important to many of StockTwits' members. ChartIQ has created an exciting product that provides access to powerful technical analysis tools and StockTwits' community from within the same iPad app," said Howard Lindzon, founder and CEO of StockTwits. "Our API program was designed for innovative companies like ChartIQ to extend the ways our members can keep their finger on the pulse of the markets and this application provides just that."

From the integrated app, investors can view real-time, streaming stock and forex charts side-by-side with the StockTwits' $(TICKER) stream from their iPad. This makes it even easier for investors to get ideas and spot trends, share their insights using their StockTwits account and quickly access ideas from the community.

"StockTwits has re-envisioned the online finance experience -- creating a community for meaningful conversation between investors, analysts, and traded companies," said Dan Schleifer, President of ChartIQ. "When our users are analyzing stock charts, StockTwits' streams and its community provide an invaluable source of ideas and information to enable smarter trades."

The integrated experience is made possible by the StockTwits Developer API, which allows developers like ChartIQ to build StockTwits' social experience in to their applications.

ChartIQ will demo the application at StockTwits' Stocktoberfest event, October 25 - 26, 2012 in Coronado, CA. For more information, click here.

ChartIQ with integrated StockTwits access is available immediately from the Apple AppStore.
