Everything you need to know about…
The mobile revolution isn’t coming – it’s already here. And with it has come the need for people to be able to access whatever they want, wherever they are. In the trading world, developers have responded to this demand by creating all sorts of mobile trading apps to let you trade on-the-go.
While mobile trading is typically a simplified version of anything you’ll find on a desktop platform – mobiles simply don’t have the luxury of large screens or permanent network connections – it still offers some dynamic user experiences, not to mention a level of convenience which more than makes up for any downsides.
So from iPhone to Android to tablet, there are options for whatever device you prefer to trade on. The following links take you through some of the key features of mobile trading; the pros and cons, why to consider it, some of the best trading apps to use, what to beware of and more.
