The TD Trading App also allows customers to switch between their linked accounts – such as their Trading Account, Trading ISA and TD SIPP accounts – to place trades. They will be able track their portfolio and see an overview of their accounts, including the details of the cash and stock they hold in each international currency. Above all, the TD Trading App provides peace of mind with personal information 128-bit encrypted so customers know they can trade securely whenever or wherever they are.

Darren Hepworth, Trading and Customer Services Director, TD Waterhouse comments: "With the current fast moving international markets equity investors require the tools that enable them to monitor their investments and immediately react to market volatility. We have already seen customers embrace the flexibility of online trading – with over 96% of trades placed with TD currently made online – and the introduction of mobile trading provides the perfect accompaniment to this service.

"The TD Trading App instantly and securely connects both our traders and our investors to the markets, their accounts and their investments without being tied to a PC. Customers are not just limited to accessing their trading account, they can place trades across 15 international markets on any linked account they have with TD including their ISA and SIPP accounts. For these reasons we believe the TD Trading App is the most comprehensive equity trading app available from a major execution-only broker in the UK."

Non-customers can also take advantage of some of the apps' features such as accessing quotes (15 minute delayed prices) and creating their own Watch List. If non-customers wish to apply for a TD account they simply need to log onto www.tdwaterhouse.co.uk or call 0845 607 6002.

The TD Trading App is the first of a suite of mobile trading services currently in development, including a dedicated app for Android users and apps to complement TD's recently launched TD Financial Spread Trading and TD Derivatives Trading (which includes CFDs, Future and Forex) services.
