FCA regulated multi asset broker ThinkMarkets has announced that it is partnering with SwipeStox, the mobile-based social trading provider, to bring their customers an extensive mobile application social trading service.
This marks another major client win for SwipeStox, after it landed FXCM as a client of its social trading app this summer. We had first reported on the launch of SwipeStox in November and in an exclusive interview with founder (and former Varengold CEO) Yasin Qureshi. SwipeStox went live this past April. SwipeStox is also backed by former CMC Markets CEO Roger Hynes.
The partnership with SwipeStox supports ThinkMarkets’ technological offering to their clients and further develops ThinkMarkets’ foray into the world of mobile-app social trading platforms.
ThinkMarkets’ services already offer customers a variety of technological access options to trading platforms through both desktop and mobile trading – facilitated via MetaTrader4 (MT4). The partnership will enable ThinkMarkets’ clients to simply connect their existing account by providing their MT4 account number and password, or easily open a new account held by ThinkMarkets.
This will aid in further catering to clients’ needs by giving them access to SwipeStox’s offering of more than 200,000 downloads, an iOS and Android App for Smartphone as well as the SwipeStox WebTrader (Web & Mobile for all devices).
Nauman Anees, CEO & Co-founder of ThinkMarkets said:
We are very excited about this partnership with SwipeStox as it enables us to continue our journey into the technological landscape and help customer experience. SwipeStox strong focus on mobile technology allows us to gives our customers the opportunity to engage via a new type of social trading platform.
Alexander Braune and Wladimir Huber, Managing Directors of SwipeStox added:
We are delighted to welcome a true global player with ThinkMarkets to the SwipeStox universe and the innovative and cutting edge strategic positioning of ThinkMarkets and SwipeStox are a perfect fit. We are moreover very happy to introduce our social network for stock traders to the Australian Market and we strongly believe that ThinkMarkets’ clients will appreciate the possibility to connect with other traders, copy trading ideas and earn lucrative bonuses on top of their trades.
We see ourselves as a further extension to the ThinkMarkets offering, by introducing a new way of trading via web and mobile, with our brand new SwipeStox WebTrader.
