GFT Markets DealBook® mobile trading platform is now available on the iPad, iPhone, Android mobile devices and also the Kindle Fire. Clients have the ability to place orders, manage price alerts, view charts and see real-time news whenever and wherever they want. The iPad version also supports live streaming of the leading business news channel CNBC.
