New Features Now Available at eToro's Mobile FX Platform OpenBook

Cypriot FX broker eToro today announced some beneficial changes to the mobile website of its social trading platform OpenBook: the Copy Trader and the live notification features are now available on it. And, as usual, we were there to check those out, as, with all our respect to the broker, the mobile OpenBook service has been rather inapt especially if we compare it with the desktop version.

 
The first thing you need to test the features is an account on OpenBook – a practice one will do. Then you should visit the http:/m.etoro.com website from your mobile gadget and sign into your account: it's just as simple as it gets.
 
Before the latest updates one could barely do anything on the go with OpenBook, so the fact that I can actually select traders which to copy via the Copy Trader option is great. The broker says that all I have to do to start copying the signals of the chosen trader is to open his/her user profile and to select “Copy” from the profile and then the amount to invest. And this would have been so easy, apart from one small detail: the way I choose traders whom to copy.
 
After the changes, the mobile Openbook allows choosing traders only through the Live feed which is a prolonged (I won't say “endless”) list of names and data.
 
 
 
The worst part about it is that the information is unsorted so that a successful trader that would obviously be my choice may come last in the lengthy list. I personally miss having the People list that ranks traders. Just take a look:
 
 
 
I bet I'd still be fine with the Live Feed choice, if the Search feature was available. Guess what – it isn't. But as I usually say, we have to deal with what we have at hand.
 
The introduction of the Copy Trader allows you not only to start copying someone, but also to stop copying someone. I already mentioned the opportunity to choose the sum to invest and there is also another perk: live notifications.
 
A red mark will appear at the right top corner of the screen of your advice, just above the eToro logo, in case there are any live notifications. If you hit the red sign with your fingertips, you'd see the new notifications and the history.  
 
So, basically, eToro is making its way towards the improvement of the mobile OpenBook. Despite my criticism, I have to stress that the broker is regularly updating its products and asking for feedback, which is a good, customer-attractive strategy. The latest update comes after the broker introduced a raft of fixes and improvements to its WebTrader platform. Way to go, eToro!
