Features that make cTrader mobile one of the best mobile trading platforms
Detailed symbol information just a glance away
Every trading symbol you find in cTrader for iOS can be expanded into a detailed preview. All the information you need to decide whether or not to enter the market is in one place. Want to inspect the overall market sentiment first, or check if a fundamental is about to be published? Would you like to base your decision on market depth? With cTrader mobile, you have all these information on a single screen, all you need to do is scroll. Once you are decided, entering the market itself takes 3 taps - two to select the position size and the third to go SHORT or LONG.
Order and risk management
If the one-button market entry scared you and you consider it something completely irresponsible, believe that the developers of cTrader mobile have thought of you too. The cTrader mobile app also allows for very advanced trade entry with risk management features. A very nice feature is the calculation of potential profit or loss when setting stop loss and take profit levels, cTrader mobile calculates this automatically for you. This gives you a perfect overview of what to expect from your trade before you enter the market plus you don't have to calculate it yourself.
When it comes to risk management features, we cannot forget to mention the trailing stop loss which you will not find in MT4 mobile, for example. With this, the stop loss level is set as a percentage of your open position, not a fixed price level. This means that the stop loss limit can trail the progress of your position and change accordingly.
Advanced Trade Position Entry in cTrader mobile
If you are trying to keep your screen time on your mobile phone to a minimum, we recommend using the price alerts feature. Here, the developers at Spotware probably followed the principle that simplicity is power. To successfully set up a price alert, you need to enter the following 3 details: whether you want to be alerted to a BID or ASK price; whether the price you want to be alerted to should be HIGHER or LOWER than your chosen price level and then you just choose the price level.
All of the above features are packed into an app that is very easy to use and navigate. The result in the form of cTrader mobile does not act as a mere substitute for the full desktop version of the trading platform. We dare say that if you were satisfied with MetaTrader 4 mobile, cTrader for iOS will really impress you.
Another unique feature of the cTrader trading platform is the synchronization of all your settings to a common server. This means that if you also trade on the desktop version of cTrader or directly in your browser with cTrader web, the changes you make there will be reflected in the mobile version as well.
