These are 2 different things altogether but are related nevertheless. Mobile trading is a platform that is compatible with trading using your mobile phone or your tablet. Most brokers will offer you a trading app that can be downloaded. That is more secure and you can impute additional security features like TPIN to add another level of security. But the real challenge is how to trade when the bandwidth is low, or when mobile signals are weak or when you traveling to remote areas where internet bandwidth is not up to the mark. There is an alternative called the Low Bandwidth Site which is a lighter and simpler site with minimal features. You may not get all the analytics and frills in this low bandwidth site but it can serve the basic purpose of execution of trades so that you do not miss out on opportunities. This is normally required for mobile trading as mobile bandwidth continues to be quite erratic in India.
