Users of the app will be able to trade on the go, although the functionality of the mobile app differs from that of the MT4 version for desktop computers.

Rakuten Securities, a subsidiary of Japanese online services provider Rakuten Inc (TYO:4755), today confirms the addition of the MetaTrader 4 (MT4) mobile app to its offering.

The announcement is in line with previously unveiled plans to introduce the mobile solution to clients of the brokerage. The mobile app is available to owners of iOS and Android-based gadgets.

Users of the app will be able to trade on the go, although the functionality of the mobile application slightly differs from the range of capabilities in the MT4 version for desktop computers. For example, unlike traders using the PC version of MT4, users of the mobile app will not be able to use expert advisors (EAs). On the brighter side, the solution is available to owners of demo accounts too.

Talking of offering by Rakuten Securities, let’s recall that, in the end of October this year, the broker rolled out its new MARKETSPEED II trading platform. The rollout had been delayed for about a month with the company explaining the delay via the need to improve and strengthen the functionalities of the platform in response to customers’ requests and comments. The new platform is downloadable and, for the time being, is available only for PCs. It works with Windows OS only.

Regarding the enhancements MARKETSPEED II offers, these include higher speed of order execution, as well as faster speed of delivery of investment information. Another improvement is the beefed up customization of the platform, as well as the enhanced interface which is said to have become more intuitive so that it is easy to understand by first-time users. Multiple displays, bolstered chart functionalities and more tech indicators are in store for traders.
