London, United Kingdom – Digital Venture Projects Ltd is excited to announce that Interactive Data Managed Solutions Ltd has signed as the financial data provider for Bullion Investor App. This agreement will provide for all live and delayed market pricing needed for automatic investment valuations. This unique premium iOS app will enable bullion investors to track their gold, silver and platinum investments in real-time based on realistic precious metals prices. The iPad app is scheduled for release mid November 2011.
Accurate Market Data for Dynamic Valuations:
Market data will be delivered realtime to iPad devices, allowing investors who buy gold, silver and platinum bars, coins and other electronic assets, to benefit from live dynamic bullion valuations of their investments in their app portfolio. The Bullion Investor App website will also display relevant delayed market data. Further negotiations are still in place to provide accurate pricing of bullion-backed Exchange Traded Funds (ETF’s) as well. This should be finalised shortly and is expected to be available at the time of the initial release, if not shortly thereafter.
Unlike regular investment software heavily focused on stocks and shares only, Bullion Investor App will enable precious metals investors to view their investment information for all their precious metal assets in a single place. The app has been designed to help users feel more in touch with their bullion investments, as most physical assets are stored elsewhere for security purposes. In general, bullion investment valuations are difficult to calculate due to their physical nature as well as a result of needing to factor in buying and selling premiums. As seen with the recent significant fluctuations of the market gold and silver price, serious as well as novice bullion investors alike need a clear and up-to-date understanding of the current value of each of their precious metal investments. Bullion Investor App will focus on delivering a real reflection of the value of their assets, based on latest market information available.
Designed to be informative, yet easy to use, the Bullion Investor App interface will allow users to intuitively add investments to their virtual app portfolio. These assets include coins, bars, Exchange Traded Funds and other custom precious metal investments. Easy to populate, with little further effort to maintain, Bullion Investor App will be a wealth of information to the bullion investor, even if just tracking the value of a single coin.
Bullion Investor App will capitalise on the iPad (and iPad 2) form-factor as well as processing ability to delivery visually appealing informative graphs. Although specifically designed for the iPad (and iPad 2), the next iteration will focus on a more streamlined version for the iPhone/iPod, followed by a comprehensive enhanced version for the Mac. Sync functionality will also be included for those releases.
Users will have the ability to edit, delete and sell any assets in their virtual portfolio. The app will not support actual purchases of these investment vehicles, but will allow investors to capture this information quickly, allowing their portfolio to be easily tracked. Features currently under development include:
* Investment summary overview
* Current asset value based on latest market prices
* Incorporation of buying and selling premiums
* Detailed graphs for performance tracking
* Bullion investor library for new investors
* Bullion portfolio analysis and calculators
* Price alerts and notifications
* iPad 2
* iOS 4.0 or higher
Pricing and Availability:
Pricing is yet to be determined, however, the application will be available worldwide exclusively through the Apple App Store in the Finance category.
