Mobile Trading

DEFINITION of 'Mobile Trading'

The use of wireless technology in securities trading. Mobile trading allows investors to access trading platforms from their telephones rather than being confined to traditional trading methods via computer. Such technology allows easier access for smart phone users to actively manage their portfolios even when they are away from a desktop/laptop.

BREAKING DOWN 'Mobile Trading'

While mobile devices, such as the Blackberry and iPhone, allowed users to check the performance of the stock market, mobile trading applications provide access to online trading platforms which can be utilized to execute trades instantly.
