Questrade Introduces New Fully Integrated Mobile Trading Platform and Client Website

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - December 14, 2015) - Questrade is wrapping up 2015 with a responsive mobile trading platform, integrated directly into a new client website. For trading clients, they'll be able to quickly login to trade, research, move money, and view their account performance using a simple "task menu" navigation tool.

Christine Day, Chief Information Officer said: "our clients are looking for a great experience. They want to trade, and they want to make contributions to a registered account. They want research and charting, performance reporting and pretty soon they'll want all their tax info. By integrating our main client websites, we achieved our goal of making trading and managing money effortless. The other main driver of this release was ensuring our clients always had the best user experience no matter how they access Questrade. A responsive website and platform means they can move seamlessly from a smartphone to a tablet, from a desktop and back to the phone."

To introduce the main features, Questrade published a video tour on the firm's YouTube channel.

Features:

  • Responsive design optimised for mobile devices, tablets, laptops and desktop
  • Faster download speeds
  • Easier navigation between trading, account management, and research tools
  • More customization with pop-out trading gadgets
  • New 30-day practice account to reflect the Questrade trading platform

Also over the weekend, Questrade's free active trader platform, Questrade IQ Edge, was upgraded to include conditional orders, stock & option screeners, and other features. Details on the IQ Edge enhancements are available on the company blog, the Exchange or with a video tour of IQ Edge.

Edward Kholodenko, President and CEO of Questrade said: "we live increasingly in an online world and our ability to continuously deliver innovative technology has become the defining factor for our clients. They join Questrade because they know we won't sit still. They stay with us because we deliver on that promise. I am exceptionally proud of this latest release. I am also proud to say this is simply what we do, and it is just one of many more improvements we'll roll out in the months and years to come."
