Trading Starts Here eToro launches mobile HTML 5 app for social trading on the go eToro, the world’s largest investment network, has announced the launch of a rich mobile web application giving traders the freedom and flexibility to trade currencies, commodities and indices 'on the go' and to participate in social trading on the move. The Mobile Trading application is based on the HTML5 that runs the eToro OpenBook™ social trading platform and its award winning CopyTrader™ functionality. It supports IOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod) and all Android mobile devices including tablets. eToro also provides a native Mobile Trader application for Android™ which was launched September of last year.
Trading and trade monitoring through mobile devices is quickly becoming a necessity, with an estimated 8% of all retail FX volume being generated this way – rising to 16% within two years. eToro understands this, but many brokers have yet to respond to this major trend. The eToro mobile trading app excels in three areas, making it easy to: find someone to copy-trade, people to follow, and check one’s account performance.
Javier Paz, Senior Analyst, Aite Group eToro's Mobile Trading application provides traders with real-time feeds of expert traders' positions and profits as well as live streaming prices for all supported products (currencies, commodities and indices) and the ability to place market and pending orders, and monitor account balances and margins. The supported ranking feature allows users to quickly identify the best-performing traders on the network and initiate CopyTrader to instantly copy all their trades into their own investment portfolio.
"As pioneers in social trading, we believe it is essential to provide our traders with the latest innovations for any time anywhere access to their trading account and the eToro OpenBook social trading community,” said eToro CEO, Johnathan Assia.

London Stock Exchange Group plc has acquired 50% of FTSE International Ltd
London Stock Exchange Group plc (LSEG) has announced it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire from Pearson plc the 50 per cent stake in FTSE International Limited (FTSE) that LSEG does not already own, for a total cash consideration of £450 million.
FTSE significantly diversifies LSEG's business into indices, data and analytics and, in particular, creates new growth opportunities for LSEG's listed derivatives trading business, a key strategic priority for the Group. It will increase access to buy-side firms and services and will offer an enhanced global footprint, including key emerging and growth markets. The transaction delivers on LSEG's strategic objectives to build on its existing assets and seek opportunities.
FTSE is a leading international index company with an attractive, established global franchise. It is the market leader in the UK and Italy and a leader in China ETFs, calculating over 200,000 individual indices covering 80 countries, including the FTSE All-World, FTSE China A50, FTSE 100 and FTSE All-Share. The company also has a fast-growing presence in the USA, providing a platform for further expansion.
Since it was established in 1995, as a joint venture between LSEG and Financial Times Group Limited, FTSE has grown rapidly and now offers a broad and international suite of products and services. The company benefits from a diversified revenue mix, with approximately 60 per cent of total revenues generated from recurring data subscriptions and the remainder derived from licence fees from asset managers. FTSE is recognised for its customer-driven innovation, such as its large and fast-growing range of alternatively weighted indices.
