JPMorgan's new mobile application means business. In a recent speech, corporate investment CEO Daniel Pinto remarked that an international client of the investment firm took advantage of the firm's new technology efforts to make a $100 million dollar trade on his mobile device.

According to Pinto, 83% of notional FX is now done electronically. In 2016, peak days saw as much as $200 billion traded on electronic channels such as their J.P. Morgan Markets platform. The Markets and Markets Prime mobile apps are available on both Android and iOS.
