CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA--(Marketwire - Feb 6, 2013) - ChartIQ, the leader in mobile stock and forex charts, today announced the launch of ChartIQ Plus for Windows 8. ChartIQ Plus is the first and only touch-optimized stock charting tool for Microsoft Surface RT, Surface Pro, and all touch-enabled Windows 8 computers.
When used on a desktop or laptop running Windows 8, ChartIQ Plus is a full-featured stock and forex charting application, with keystroke and mouse commands. When operated from a touch screen -- a tablet, ultrabook, or all-in-one touch PC -- ChartIQ provides touch gesture access to all of the same features.
"Touch is an integral part of the Windows 8 experience, and we're proud to be the only stock and forex charting tool optimized for touch as well as keyboard and mouse," said Dan Schleifer, co-founder and president of ChartIQ. "Whether it's on a Microsoft Surface or a touch-enabled Windows 8 ultrabook, traders can access all of our charting features in either mode."
Built on HTML5 technology, ChartIQ is the only suite of stock and forex charting applications designed to work on every desktop browser and tablet on the market, across brands and operating systems. As traders move from multi-screen desktops at the office, to tablets at home or on the road, having access to the same professional-grade tools is critical.
Added Mr. Schleifer, "Traders no longer want one set of applications at their desk, and another -- often extremely limited -- set on their mobile devices. With ChartIQ Plus, traders have the same tools, no matter where they are, or what device they're on."
ChartIQ Plus for Windows 8 is available immediately from the Windows Store. ChartIQ Plus is also available for Apple iPad in the iTunes Store and on the web at chartiq.com
