GKFX Trading Apps – mobile trading via smartphone or tablet
In the early days of trading in foreign exchange and CFDs, which are now well over ten years ago, it was only possible for private customers to place the relevant trading orders via their PC or telephone. The reason for this was that almost all brokers exclusively provided a trading platform that could be accessed via a desktop PC or at best via laptop. This has now changed significantly, because nowadays almost every Forex and CFD broker also offers so-called trading apps as an alternative to trading via PC. These are applications that enable access to the trading platform on a smartphone, iPhone, iPad or tablet PC. Nowadays, hardly any trader wants to do without this possibility of trading, which is why such trading apps have become an important decision criterion when it comes to choosing a broker.
