An iPhone application that lets users view how financial markets are performing and place bets on whether prices will rise or fall has been launched by gnuTrade.
The free game can be used to make bets with play and real money. Users receive a virtual trading currency of 10,000 'gnus' when they download the app which can be used to bet on real-time, live prices. Markets available include stock indices, currencies, commodities and bonds.
New players who sign up through the app can also login to the main site from any computer to view their complete trading history, try out gnuTrade's full trading platform and different ways to bet, and fund their real money account.
Lieven Van Marcke, MD and founder, gnuTrade, says: "The ground-breaking launch of the gnuTrade iPhone app means customers have greater choice in how they view and trade the global markets. They can bet with play or real money just like gnuTrade online, but now have the ability to trade from practically anywhere, using a convenient mobile platform."
