Hi All,
      I enjoy pratice trading and it's time to have a mobile device just for trading. I'm looking at a Asus quad core with removable screen. Has anyone any advice. I'm only going for this because it's under $500 and a quad core, I don't know anything about computers. Thanks Bruce

Personally, I would consider a PC instead. As far as I can tell, you'll not be able to run any non standard indicators from an android device.

Thanks for that LH. So the Forex50pips and the Fores Fish would not work on the android? They both go in the experts box?? They are still classed as an indicator? Thanks Bruce

Just did a quick search for those services that you mentioned. They look like EAs to me. I also have MT4 for Android running, and did a quick look through. It doesn't seem like neither external indicators nor EAs run on it.

Thanks for that. Because of your comments I've held off buying for another week. I have a dual core acer laptop that is four years old. I'll down load onto that and have a play. I was keen to see a quad core in action. Thanks again LK. Bruce

Ended up with an IPAD. Great for slowing me down and I can still have a look on the job in my lunch break. Does not do Robots, but most will say that's a good thing.

Thats probably a good thing Bruce! But unless you have trades already looking, and you have a pre-determined exit, you would probably not want to look at the markets too often either. It screws with your mind ! hahaha

I think I'm months away from not seeing how things are going. I'm trying to relax into day charts, look at the long trends and place whatever with sl and tp before I go to work. Knowing that I have some knowledge of the long trends help. No stress with a demo account. LOL

I trade the dailies, and I quite enjoy it now. My stops per trade are bigger than what most scalpers would make in a week. I just adjust the lot sizes to compensate. It will take some people a while to get there, while others never want to / never do. But, what I do like is that it gives me time to work on the accounts I manage, and also the finer things in life. :0)

I like the idea of trading where you're on the go, but it just that - an idea. It never works well (for me at least) as you don't have the same charting capabilities as in a desktop based pc.
