Thanks @TradeViper

Our mobile app team is looking to release an update for Android within the next couple of months. While we can’t confirm the exact list of features that will be included in this update at this time, we can relay your feedback regarding the charts and tools on the app. Are there any particular tools you would like to see added? You mentioned the charts aren’t big enough. Have you already tried viewing them in landscape mode?

Hey dude, the landscape looks good, but I think it would be nice to see it in portrait, where you could drag the chart to expand it over the markets overview, then drag it back down to continue to see the market overview. Also, more colors for levels and trend lines.

Ok, so we figured out the order entry system, imho, a bit unwieldy, but functional. Next, on the mobile platform it would be nice to have entry, TP, and stop lines on the chart, they did not show up for me.

Oh yeah. And how about an account balance window on the chart, also live pip readout that let’s a trader know if they are up or down

Oh and how about this, in landscape mode, you swipe down and you get you blotter with active trades, then you can tap one and either close it or adjust tp/stop. Also if you swipe up, you get the latest news.

By the way how can I monetize these Brilliant Missives.

And one more thing, while I am at it. I was experimenting with setting a bracket for this mornings news. I had it set on my live platform but, either I don’t know the your mobile platform well enough or well anyway. Here is what I mean, EUR/USD Set Long at 1.1900, STOP LOSS 33 pips, TP 47.5 pips. Then SHORT at 1.1862, STOP LOSS 19.5 pips, TP 30 pips. For the life of me I just could not find out how to do it. I think later on I will try it on the desktop platform and see if I can get that part of it, Oh yes, by the way I am green this morning.

@TradeViper thanks for providing even more feedback we will share with our mobile app developers!

In regards to your question about setting up a bracket for news trading, you can create two separate “If Then OCO” orders – one to buy at 1.1900 and one to sell at 1.1862.

Below is an example of how to place the “If Then OCO” order to buy at 1.1900 with associated stop loss and take profit orders.

Please let us know if you have any further questions.

Excellent Smithers, Excellent. Now if we could just get rid of that Horrible White background in the charts :wink:

Oh and here is another bugaboo, I put a horizontal line on a 1hr chart, then change to 15 min, the line moves away from the placement on the 1 Hr. No really it does.

Bitcoin (BTC/USD) trading now available with UK

At, we’re committed to offering traders the markets they want to trade. We’re pleased to announce Bitcoin trading is now available with UK*.

Bitcoin is one of the year’s most talked-about markets, starting 2017 priced under $1,000 and steadily rising to break several record highs, hitting $19,783.06 on Sunday, December 17th. The cryptocurrency’s high volatility has traders looking for potential short-term opportunities and you can now take advantage of them at

Why trade Bitcoin?

  • Unlike when purchasing Bitcoin, you can sell/short Bitcoin just as easily as you can buy it
  • Tap into the market opportunity without taking ownership of the asset
  • Leverage allows you to take a position with less capital. Increased leverage increases your risk
  • No need to create or pay for a virtual wallet to store and protect your Bitcoin


How to Trade Bitcoin?

  • Join us for a free webinar.
  • Choose from either session:
  • Thursday, December 21st at 16:30 GMT,
  • or Friday, December 22nd at 10:30 GMT.


Bitcoin is a highly volatile market. The heightened volatility brings opportunity, but also a greater degree of risk. Make sure you fully understand the risk before you trade.

*Spot Bitcoin Trading is not available in the US at this time, but US residents now have access to Bitcoin Futures Trading.
