One of the most popular benefits of trading is the freedom it gives you in every aspect of your life. With that in mind, at Trading College we teach strategies, use indicators and provide online learning that allows our students to have the most flexibility and freedom. Trading has become more accessible and convenient whilst on the move. This is thanks to advancements in technology, and 24 access to the internet at your fingertips. Mobile trading makes it that much easier for you to earn money. As long as you have a wifi connection and your mobile device (mobile phone, tablet or laptop), you are good to go!
As traders, we are always looking for ways to improve our trading and become more efficient. As Lee Sandford, MD of Trading College mentions, mobile trading has become increasingly popular.

It’s perfectly possible to be laying on a beach whilst trading the financial markets. As long as you have an internet connection, of course! Below we have listed some benefits of mobile trading.

How You Can Use Mobile Trading
Let’s recap on the two methods that we use at Trading College to make the best use of mobile trading.
1) Set And Forget
Let’s say you do your analysis and identify a trending market; you see the volatility, which means the market is moving, but the price is not yet at the level you want to enter the trade at. With set and forget, you set your orders with the broker at the levels you choose and everything happens automatically. You decide on your desired price to enter the market, and at what levels you want to exit the trade, and then you can forget about it.
2) Setting Alerts
If you want a little more control over your trades, you can set your phone to alert you when the price approaches the level you want to enter the trade at. Then you can open your account and manually enter the trade when you are happy to do so. This obviously requires a little more commitment than “set and forget”. However, it still means that you don’t have to sit at the computer watching the market move, or repeatedly check where the price is at because your phone will alert you when it’s nearly time to trade.
Either system, when you are using simple and straightforward strategies, means that busy people can trade on the go. These tools will become your best friends and allow you to be a truly mobile trader! There are no more excuses, you really can trade from anywhere at any time.
