Mobile trading has been made possible by Android-powered trading apps that have seen the growth of the market. What are the requirements for Android Forex trading?

Disadvantages of Android trading apps

In as much as android trading apps have its share of perks, it also has its setbacks.

1. Unstable connection

You need to have a very reliable internet connection for your mobile trade to be active and efficient. However, one of the disadvantages of using android apps is that most of the devices get an intermittent connection. Especially if you are on the move, like in an elevator, you will get disconnected in the middle of a significant transaction. This could cause your account significant loses.

2. Limitation of Expert Advisors

Most or all trading automation tools are only available for computers: which is quite unfortunate. Using Android trading apps could mean missing out on automated processes, and you will have to stick to manual trading which could be somewhat tedious.

3. Additional costs

Yes, you may have installed wireless networks at your place of work or home. But since you might have to use it on the go, you might as well as incur additional costs that come with purchasing various data plans for your device to get connected.

4. Inferior execution time

Why can the performance be halfway up the mountain at times? It is for the particular reason that most of the apps are usually derived from the ones being used on personal computers: which means that they may not be responsive to your Android smartphone or tablet.

In such cases, you will find that the performance of your account on your PC is exemplary but particularly poor on your phone.

5. Overtrading

Accessibility to your mobile device also has its downside. The chances of getting compelled to do more and more trading are high. The feeling of needing to be in the market is rational and human. However, over trading only exposes you to more risk as a trader: not every time things will work in your favor.
