In this category we find all of the forex brokers that have developed their own web-based trading platforms that they offer their clients, as well as those that are offering web-based versions of classic trading platforms, such as MetaTrader for web.
Many forex traders prefer using web-based platforms since these platforms don’t require any specific hardware or operating systems to work. This differs from traditional platforms like the MetaTrader for desktop, which only works with Windows computers. Mac users therefore often prefer to use the web version of the same platform.
In addition, web-based trading platforms often save the chart drawings and other work that has been done in “the cloud.” This way, a trader can continue where he left off even when he is signing in to the trading platform from anther computer.
