The Best Forex iPad App 2014

After a slow start in the Apple iPad (plus the iPad 2 and now the iPad 3 and the iPad Mini) App Store for forex traders, things seem to be hotting up on the currency front over at Apple HQ. There’s plenty on offer for the iPhone and iPod Touch of course (we’ve made our views clear on the best iPhone forex app in another post), but you’d be short changing yourself if you used an app designed for the smaller iPhone or Ipod Touch iOS on an iPad. If you’ve got the bigger screen-why not use it?

If you are one of those traders who likes to take over the world from the comfort of his or her sofa, then a 10″ screen is a must. Here are a couple of our favourite apps for trading on the sofa… If we were to pick one out of a bunch of very good iPad apps? Close, but probably the XM iPad app. Or, sign up for an MT4 account with a broker like Alpari  and then download the MetaTrader 4 ipad app from MetaQuotes Software Corp. You’ll need to configure the app to login in to the MT4 servers (this was pretty easy on Alpari), and then you are off (better for intermediate to advanced traders)

Remember- please trade responsibly. It’s easy to become “laissez-faire” when you are trading on an iPad. Let’s face it- you may be on the sofa or otherwise engaged. So make sure you apply the same rigorous assessment of any entry and exit point as you would on your desktop or laptop.

    Yep- I second this. For intermediate to advanced traders, that Dukascopy forex iPad app nails it

    For an app that doesn’t require a specific broker account, I find iChartist pretty cool:

    I am trading off Oanda at the moment, and I find the ipad app FRUSTRATINGLY slow- don´t know why, as the desktop trader is fine, and I have it on my Android phone as well, which is fine. Going to give Forex Club a go as I do more and more of my trading on the ipad…and i like the look of those spreads….

    I’m currently using Oanda but the limited chart options as well as the inability to view a currency pair’s highs/lows is killing me.
    I’m also using trade interceptor and it seems solid except I can’t actually place any orders because I haven’t registered an actual account.
    I’ll be looking into the two apps suggested here. I’ll give my 2 cents when I do.

  6. Henry Lo says:

    Trade Interceptor is great on charting I am finding. Lots of analytical tools, but I don´t really understand the multiple broker thing- you can pull in feeds from all sorts of sources. All very nice, but why dulicate? Surely it would be better to choose one and then go from there?

    AVAFX is pretty good on tablets. I have an iPad 3 and trade off it the whole time. My only problem is, it’s too easy to pick up and open up silly trades, so I just need to make sure I stick to my discipline and do my homework first

  8. Rick Houghton says:

    My vote goes to FXCM. The functionality is great, the only thing that annoys me is their use of dark colours everywhere. What’s wrong with black, green and red on white? Anyone know how to switch this?

    Hurrah, that’s what I was exploring for! Present here at this blog, thanks.
