Trading and Technology

It’s pretty evident while walking the streets of London that the world has changed drastically over the past 10 to 15 years. I’m not going to harp on about how I remember when the first mobile phones were released (but I do, and well). In fact, I think it’s quite astounding how accessible everything has become by carrying a smart phone with you.

Back in the day it was hard to get information that you were looking for even using the internet or a library it seemed like such a prolonged process but now everything is available to you with just a few clicks on your phone. In a market as volatile as the forex market having access to your trading account and other sites that inform you about the market puts us all at such an advantage.

Being able to access the market so easily means that as traders we can make informed decisions and buy and sell currency whilst on the go, no more anxiously waiting to get back to your desk or back home to make a trade. I believe technology like this has changed and will continue to change the way that people view trading, encouraging more people to trade. Using trading apps means it is now more accessible than ever for people to trade – especially when trading is not their full time occupation.

One benefit of learning to trade with Plan B Trading is that we offer courses and mentoring via Skype. Similarly to trading apps you can be anywhere in the world and we are still able to assist you on your trading journey.
