What Is A Forex App?

The best traders consume information from multiple sources to inform trades and react quickly to the FX market. The must-have forex apps enable this by allowing traders to act on-the-go from their mobile device, providing a constant stream of news and signals so that the trader is kept up-to-date. Most of the top forex and Bitcoin brokers offer a mobile trading app like MT4 or MT5 in 2021.

MT4 Forex Trading

Types Of Forex Apps

Mobile forex apps can generally be split into two categories: Active Trading and Supplementary.

Active Trading Forex Apps

Mobile Trading Platforms

Just as most forex traders needs a platform on their computer or laptop, most will also utilise the convenience of a mobile app too. Mobile trading platforms tend to have similar functionality to their desktop counterparts, but are available on-the-go, ensuring your live portfolio is always at your fingertips so you never miss a trade.

Many brokers also offer demo accounts on the mobile app too, which enable beginners to practice trades in their spare time while learning.

Social & Copy Trading Apps

Social and copy trading apps allow forex traders to view trades made by other investors that match their risk profile. These are perfect for traders who are interested in investing but don’t have the hours to complete the research required and are happy to trust in the knowledge of others. There are varying degrees of automation, but some forex apps enable the complete following and copying of another trader’s positions with minimal manual overlay.

Robot Forex Apps

Similarly, forex trading robot (or bot) apps use algorithms to search for, and execute trades. Beginners who are looking to dabble in forex trading may be interested in downloading these applications.

It’s important to look at the past performance of algorithms to check they have has a history of successful prediction. This is known as backtesting. All good robot app providers should routinely stress test their bots to ensure they are performing as marketed – and this information should be available before you purchase. However, as all investors know, past performance is not an indication of future profits, so ensure you are comfortable with the risk.

Note, you can also use forex apps, such as MT4 and MT5 to build your own trading bot.

Supplementary Apps

News & Economic Calendar Apps

These forex apps provide a constant stream of up-to-date news which may impact the forex market. Keeping abreast of the latest goings on is essential as the market can be wildly impacted by political and social events. Some of the most popular forex apps are specialists in 24-hour news services and alert traders across time zones.

Forex Signals Apps

Signals apps provide tips and indicators to help you decide which FX trades to make. They are often marketed as professional forex traders who are selling their knowledge or even giving it away for free. There are apps out there that are specifically matched to certain trading strategies, for example, breakout signals apps.

However, always exercise caution when choosing a service. Signals apps aren’t necessarily reliable and could do more harm than good. Whilst there are some highly-rated and legitimate firms out there, such as Forex Signals by StartUp apps, companies like Forex Hunter and Forex Kings have been criticised for poor signals and customer service. Many reviews question whether the signals actually work.

Of course, there is no simple playbook to forex trading – even the top forex signals apps won’t be correct 100% of the time.

And The Rest!

There are hundreds of other forex apps out there with functionality to assist your trades, including position size and profit calculators, charts, reminders, heatmaps and log/journal apps. All can be downloaded from the respective app stores.

Pros Of Forex Apps

There are several reasons why utilising top forex apps can make your life easier:

  • Agility – Forex trading apps enable you to make trades from anywhere, giving you the agility to act to FX rates at the right time.
  • 24/7 market knowledge – The best forex analysis apps give you market data around the clock and help you to keep your finger on the pulse. Some can also give you price alerts when a currency reaches certain levels so that you never miss a trade.
  • Supplements desktop trading – Being able to trade or strategise from anywhere is a useful supplement to desktop trading. It is also great for beginners.
  • Demo trading – The top 3 forex trading apps also have demo accounts or simulators where you can practice at the touch of a button without risking capital.
  • Forex games – You can try some of the forex games out there such as Forex Hero or Trading Game which teach you strategy whilst you play.

Cons Of Forex Apps

  • Functionality – Your forex trading app is unlikely to have the full range of functionality that you’ll find on desktop platforms. If the functionality is there, it is sometimes unintuitive and therefore some traders find it easier to work on a desktop computer. Many traders find that forex apps are great for watching trades or managing stops, but won’t place trades on their mobile. You’ll soon find which mix of working styles works best for you.
  • Impulsivity – Hardened forex traders will have heard the mantra ‘plan your trade, trade your plan’. But mobile forex apps can facilitate the opposite of this. Whilst quick reaction times can sometimes be beneficial, they may also increase the likelihood of impulsive trades, which could harm your strategy in the long run.
  • Unsuitable for analysis – Some of the best forex indicators aren’t available on a mobile app, which can make it hard to plan your trade effectively. Plus, the small screen size means that you can’t see the detail which is available on a PC. For these reasons, many traders prefer to use multiple platforms rather than stick to just the one.

Before you start trading on your chosen mobile forex online app, you’ll need to download it from the app store.

Type in the forex app of your choice and download. Once you’re on the app, you’ll need to log in to your trade account using the portal details provided by your broker, so make sure you’ve opened an account with them first. You can use a demo account to do this if you’re looking to practice.

Certain forex apps are also available on your Apple Watch, for example, news apps that will send push notifications to you at all times of the day. Many FX signals and backtesting apps are free to download for iPhone or Android, however some, such as the Bloomberg Business app, might require a subscription to access the higher-tier content.

Should I Start Using Forex Trading Apps?

At the very least, forex apps that offer you market data and news on-the-go can prove useful. With so many forex apps out there that promise similar functionality, consider what combination best adds to your trading experience.
