LeapRate has learned that trading app developer Hummingbird Trading has partnered with FCA licensed FX and CFDs broker Valutrades, to provide Valutrades with its next generation of mobile trading apps.
Hummingbird is a proprietary trading platform completely independent of existing systems such as MetaQuotes. Designed around the end user and built using React Native technology, Hummingbird is integratable with other APIs. Available on iOS and Android, users can open an account, pass KYC, deposit, withdraw and trade seamlessly from within the application.
With over 70 tradable assets, including cryptocurrencies, Hummingbird was designed to attract a younger generation of traders at CPAs far more competitive than the industry standard.
Graeme Watkins, CEO of Valutrades said:
From the first moment I saw the Hummingbird mobile app it was clear it was a different class to the multitude of MT4 copycat apps. It has a great modern feel and appeals to a very broad market of potential clients. Rather than simply another way for our existing clients to execute transactions, Valutrades sees this as the gateway to a much wider audience. We have been working hard with the team at Hummingbird to ensure that our market leading products and professionalism translates fully to their mobile app.
John Krehbiel, co-founder and CEO of Hummingbird commented:
Our vision is to make the foreign exchange markets and trading in general accessible, intuitive and mobile by building state of the art technology. Valutrades is the perfect partner for Hummingbird due to their reputation, regulatory and brokerage experience. We strongly believe that the combination of our technology and with Valutrades’ expertise will lead to strong growth by offering existing traders newer and faster technology, and new traders the security of trading with a trusted broker.
