HTML5-based financial charting and technology company, ChartIQ, and m-FINANCE, a Hong Kong-based forex/bullion trading platform provider have announced a web and mobile application partnership. Under terms of the deal, ChartIQ will provide its HTML5 charting technology to m-FINANCE’s solutions. The combined technology will provide charting and advanced technical analysis tools to be delivered through m-FINANCE’s web and mobile- based platforms to customers in China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan.
We have written about ChartIQ in the past, in regards to its standalone charting app and its significance to mobile trends. The current deal marks a small but growing list of firms that are licensing ChartIQ’s technology for their trading platforms. Among notable partners, Leverate’s upgraded HTML5 Sirix platform utilizes ChartIQ technology. In the current deal, the two companies announced that the Chinese-language trading applications on web and mobile platforms that feature ChartIQ’s technology are being made immediately through m-FINANCE.
Commenting on the deal in the joint public announcement from the two firms, Dan Schleifer, Co-Counder and President of ChartIQ said, “Chinese-speaking countries are the next wave of retail trading and m-FINANCE is the perfect partner to bring our technology to this market. Their deep understanding of the Chinese-speaking markets, localization requirements, long-term relationship with large number of brokerage clients and ability to deliver an integrated product to brokerages is unmatched.”

Connected at iFXEXPO
Interestingly, speaking to Schleifer, he explained to Forex Magnates that the deal was based on the two companies meeting at this year’s Cyprus iFXEXPO where ChartIQ was exhibiting. Drawing attendees from across the globe, the event marked an opportune networking point to discover new technologies being introduced into the industry, upcoming brokerage launches, and overall product and company updates. The ability to source new business and network is a major theme of industry gatherings with similar opportunities expected to take place during the upcoming Forex Magnates London Summit, as well as iFXEXPO in Macau.
