While the desktop remains the dominant platform for trading, there are now more than 106 million smartphone owners in the U.S., leading to an app market that is growing at an incredible pace. Reports suggest that more than 10 billion apps had been downloaded by 2010 and that number is expected to approach 80 billion by 2014.
FXDD recognized early on that this anywhere-anytime consumer trend was perfectly aligned with Forex markets and offer the ability to trade virtually anywhere at almost any time. FXDD has a line of mobile applications designed for today’s mobile trader that include the FXDD iTrader, Currenex iPROTrader, FXDD MT4 droidTrader, FXDD JForex for iPhone and FXDD JForex for iPad.
At FXDD, we know that our clients rely largely on the desktop computer for most trades. We also realize that the nature of Forex trading lends itself to the mobile environment. To that end, FXDD has developed a full line of mobile apps to compliment our PC-based tools. With these, we provide the comfort of consistent and constant liquidity, access to information and the flexibility to trade around the clock, whether you’re sitting on the beach in Fiji, or at your desk in the office.

There are many advantages to mobile trading, though there are limitations and FXDD is the first to say that it may not be for everyone. FXDD has gone to great lengths to provide access to the best apps the industry has to offer. That said, we realize that some clients find the trading software for mobile phones doesn’t provide the stability and functionality that they’re accustomed to from the platforms they use with their PCs. Most agree that the FXDD mobile apps we described above are extremely convenient for analyzing the market and practicing on demo accounts.
Some FXDD clients rave about the convenience of making trades no matter where they are and others prefer a more traditional approach of making trades from their desktop. Whichever your preference, FXDD has the tools you need to trade Forex.
