Our Verizon contract is up and we've made the decision to switch to smartphones. Does anyone here have an opinion as to which offers the better trading platform? I'm referring to literally trading from the hip. The speed with which one receives alerts and opens/closes positions can certainly provide an edge. We've always used VZ for connection reliability (probably an even more important consideration)- so the iPhone is not an option.
For instance, the opening scene below is exactly how one needs to trade outlaw ETFs like TZA/UNG/VXX. You would have to stride in confidently, strike before they know what's going on, splash a little beer on their faces, and close the positions before they have a chance to regroup and take you out.
