Re: Mobile Trading
I think you are right. It will be interesting to see the impact that mobile trading has on the economy. Algo trading did not get a very good name after 2008, because linear financial models do not react in real-time in a non-linear economy. I guess in this regard, mobile trading and trading based on real-time data from the IoT is more promising.

Re: Mobile Trading
@Brian nice thought. I think mobile trading will be quite beneficial for part time traders rather than full time investors. It will not only increase the investors confidence as well as make other people think of adopting the profession as they can manage their buisnesses without sticking to their seats.

Mobile Trading
How should mobile trading be viewed, should it be viewed as a tool that enables full time trading professionals to initiate a trade while they are away from their desk (trade information that was gained at their desk) or should it be viewed as a tool that enables part time traders?

For instance, a farmer that is running their business on the ground has lots of real time data and a good estimate of the regions yield capability for a particular season and might want to invest in similar businesses in the same region.
