    Hi All,

    There are firewall issues at work preventing me from running the java TWS so I'm considering a wireless PDA in order to use IB's Mobile Trader software to (mostly) exit my morning's trades (I live near the left coast so my trading day begins at 6:30 AM, before work).

    Does anyone have anything positive/negative to say about Mobile Trader?

    Thanks.

    Due to the overwhelming interest in this thread I think I'll start another one as Part 2. :)

    Alrighty then, maybe I'll post a review myself when I get Mobile Trader working (have a Palm i705 on order).

    I never got it to work on the i705, the problem is a WAP browser is needed and you need to set the gateway to IB's. I tried for a while since I already own the i705 I figured it would be a good back up but like I said I never got it to work.

    If you are able to get it to work please post it.

    Good luck. :)

    Thanks for this thread bungrider, I never found it before. I guess the upside for me is that I got a smoking deal on the i705 so if it truly is this bad then back on ebay it goes. :)

    (Crossing my fingers that the speed will be sufficient)

    And oh yes MrX, if I get it to work I'll post a follow-up to this (now growing!) thread.
