User-friendly interface and flexible settings 

Most modern mobile platforms are designed to be as user-friendly as possible. Platform developers think through the design of the platform to the smallest detail, so all the main parameters are displayed on the main working screen, and the main commands ("buy" and "sell") are highlighted in bright colors.

As a rule, the mobile version has all the same features as the full desktop version, with one exception: you can't open multiple trading windows on the screen at the same time. Mobile applications provide full access to other functions, and you can use indicators, stop orders, as well as view the news feed, chat, economic calendar, and so on.

A good choice of assets

Modern mobile platforms provide you with full access to all the assets that the broker of your choice works with through a mobile platform. That is, if you have selected certain resources to work in the desktop version, they should also be available to you in the mobile version.

With the help of high-quality mobile platforms, you can:

  • Stock trading. Mobile platforms allow you to invest in CFDs on shares of leading companies and industry giants without actually owning them.

The key advantage of CFDs is that you can speculate on the movement of the asset price (up or down);
  • Invest in economic sectors. The platform unites all industries, from the production of goods and services to innovative technologies, so you can always make the right investment decision (energy, healthcare, real estate, telecommunications, utilities, information technology, finance, equipment, industry, household goods. and so on.);
  • Speculate CFDs on hard or soft commodities, such as gold, silver, oil and grain;
  • Binary Options trading;
  • Trade currency (Forex market). Discover well-known, little-known or exotic currency pairs and invest in them using effective spreads;
  • Invest in ETFs. Diversify your investments with CFD-traded funds with multiple assets in one basket;
  • Indices Select from the list of CFDs for indices in which significant funds are invested and which represent a certain market sector or national economy.

Convenient trading tools

Modern mobile trading platforms are equipped with a variety of tools to facilitate trading. With features such as stop loss / take profit, negative capital protection and a sliding stop, you can control your profit and loss by setting a critical level for them in advance.

A stop loss is an instruction to the broker to close a trade when a certain level of price loss is reached.

Stop-losses help traders to reduce risks in case of various technical failures. Let's assume that at some point the trader's connection with the trading service is interrupted. It cannot send orders to the broker's server, including orders to close the transaction. If he has taken care of setting a Stop Loss in advance, the broker will automatically close the transaction when the level is reached. But if the stop loss is never set, the loss can be much larger.

One of the types of stop loss is the so-called trailing stop, or trailing stop. The essence of this order is that the Stop Loss level increases along with your profit, being at the same distance from it.

Take Profit is a type of pending order for a broker to close a trade when the price reaches a certain profit level. If the price reaches the Take Profit level, the transaction is automatically closed and the profit is fixed.

In addition, the mobile version (as in the full version) also has a multiplier option that includes leverage. 

Keep in mind that leverage significantly increases the risk of your trades, so do not use it if you do not have a lot of trading experience.

When choosing the mobile version of the platform, check the availability of the tools listed above.

Indicators for technical analysis

Technical analysis indicators are algorithms that show future prices using quotation data for a certain period of time.

Each indicator of technical analysis is based on a formula. This formula is used for calculations. The formula may differ depending on the type of indicator or its purpose. For example, one formula calculates the average price for a certain period, another-the closing or opening price of the market, and so on.

Good mobile platforms have a large number of various technical analysis indicators, which will allow you to see current trends even using a mobile application.


News on the platform

Of course, up-to-date information is always important for a trader. Therefore, many brokers did not simplify the mobile versions of applications, excluding the news feed. As in the desktop version, these applications have a news section. Read news about individual companies or set up a general news feed and notifications. This way, you will always keep your finger on the pulse of world events.

Up - to-date information is a trader's trump card. By tracking various economic and political processes, you will learn how to analyze their impact on the situation on the investment market and make correct forecasts in the future.

Give preference to those mobile trading applications that have a news section.

Learning Opportunities

In addition to information in the form of current news, on many platforms you will find a training section with video tutorials. This section contains all the theoretical information, from the basics of investing to complex methods of technical analysis. The lessons are adapted for the novice trader.

In addition to the training section, reliable trading applications offer a demo account. A demo account is a special training account to which the system automatically credits a certain amount of fictitious virtual money for test operations. Since the demo account is always completely identical to the real one, you can easily practice performing various operations. 

The presence of a demo account and video tutorials is probably one of the main points that should be taken into account when choosing a mobile platform - especially if you are a novice trader.

In addition to all of the above, it should be noted that a reliable mobile online platform should also provide round-the-clock customer support in the feedback form. It is very good if you can choose one of several communication languages.

Also check the mobile platform for the speed of operations, the size of the limits on the input and output of funds, the options for entering and withdrawing funds, the speed of data synchronization between several versions of the platform, the level of data protection (this can include two-step authentication and tracking of all active applications.
