Mobile app FAQ

Is mobile trading safe?

Yes, as long as you use a fully secure platform such as the City Index mobile trading app – which uses sophisticated encryption technology to ensure your account has the highest possible level of security.

Once you download the City Index app on Android or iPhone, you’ll be prompted to enter your log in details to ensure that other users can’t access your trades. From there, you can choose to enable fingerprint, eye or facial recognition to further enhance security (as long as your phone supports this feature).

Can I trade on both the City Index app and Web Trader?

Yes, you can trade on both the City Index app and Web Trader with your City Index account. Your log in details will be exactly the same on both, so to get started simply download our trading app by searching for ‘City Index’ in your smartphone’s app store.

We’ll even automatically sync all your open positions and orders between the app and Web Trader, meaning you can trade seamlessly between the two.

Download the City Index app on Android or iPhone to get started.

How does mobile trading work?

Mobile trading works just like traditional trading – you just open and close positions using an app on your smartphone, instead of a desktop dealing platform. The City Index app, for example, enables you to buy and sell our full range of markets, as well as research opportunities, manage positions and more.

Many traders choose to trade on both desktop and mobile, using a web trading platform when they’re at their desk and a mobile app to keep an eye on the markets when they’re out and about.
