Scotia iTRADE® App Now Available for Apple Watch®

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - March 15, 2016) - Scotia iTRADE® today announced the launch of its new Apple Watch app that will allow its clients instant access to market indices and watchlists on their wristwatch without having to log in to their direct investing account.

"We're committed to providing convenient, secure and simple technology solutions for our clients so they can take better control of their financials," said Susi McCord, Managing Director, Scotia iTRADE. "We believe direct investors with a taste for the latest technology will be tremendously excited by this news."

In addition to allowing clients instant access to market data and watchlists, Scotia iTRADE's Apple Watch app gives direct investors a 'quick view' snapshot of the markets, indicating how many indices are up, down and unchanged. Investors can also use quick view to view the status of the stocks in their personalized watchlist. In addition, users can also access a detailed stock quote by tapping on any of the stock symbols in their watchlist. They can then see the quote, trend chart, fundamental data and analyst recommendations of any stock.
