    Default MT4 on a Blackberry

    Has anyone tried MT4 on a Blackberry? My day job takes me away quite a lot and I was wondering whether it was worth it? Otherwise I do miss a lot of good 4hr signals during the day. Any views?

    The other alternative is is to get an Orange broadband package for my work laptop at £4.95 a month and I can login to MT4 platform directly or onto my desktop PC in my office at home via Logmein (which I have).

    My broker is FXDD.

    Any views?

    Hi Peter,
    Mobile trading sounds nice but it is not as easy as it sounds.
    You do not have enough screen space to do a proper analysis.
    I am not sure that blackberry supports real mt4 and you do not have to go through a software conversion.
    Also I am not sure if you can use all the custom indicators, templates, profiles that we are used to.
    There are brokers that will give the opportunity to open and manage trades but for real technical analysis you will need something different.
    The solution I use is a netbook with a 10 inch screen. Usually there is a WiFi around that I can use to connect to my accounts. If not I can use my mobile as a modem and connect.
    A ipadlike pc with a 7-8 inch screen could also be a solution.
    Having a remote connection from your Blackberry to your PC could also work but again I am not sure about the speed. If you trade from 4h charts and need to to it once every 4h it could be acceptable.
    Alex (Raa) has been working with mobile solutions so maybe he could help

    Thumbs down Doubts

    One is usually carrying his mobile with him all the time, whereas I can not imagine one always having his laptop in the cafe when he meets friends.
    Also to have a remote desktop you must have a server to connect to or home PC always up and running.
    And there is nothing worse than a windows interface through RDP on a touch screen )))

    I have a Nokia xpressmusic that I can use to browse the internet, read my emails from gmail, hotmail. I also trade from my OANDA account (no graphs just open, view, close trades)
    I opened a demo account with you and after entering the address to access it from my phone I get a picture from the flash player with and yellow triangle (the danger sign) and it will not load the application.
    Do you have an idea how to overcome this problem?
    Regards

    Actually this is a web application that was tested to work with all the desktop browsers, even with Sony PlayStation ))
    We did not try using it on nokia phones. We believe that Flash implementation there might be not so powerful by the way.
    This application is optimized for window of size of above 800x600 which most of desktop users have. And it may actually be a bit ugly on the small screen of a mobile and it might be slow on the mobile processor because Flash is very resource consuming. This is why Steve Jobs doesn't want Flash to be there on the iPhones.

    And there would have been no reason to create a bunch of trading applications designed specifically for each mobile device type if you were all able to run properly an application designed for a desktop.

    For instance, to assure best user experience now we are publishing even a special application for iPad although one could have used an iPhone application there.

    We are planning Xogee Nokia Trader as well, but now we are focused more on the platforms that have bigger market share. Nokia Smartphones will be there, of course, but after the Xogee Android Trader.
    Thank you very much for your feedback.
