You can view the live BCT trading rooms on your phone or tablet by using the Pro Trading Room app by Bellesoft Consulting Corp.. The app is available for Apple and Android devices. This app lets you view the room, the comments, listen to the audio from the room moderators, access the room files, and chat. It also lets you receive alerts pushed during the sessions.
To find the correct app, and to get the credentials necessary to connect you as an authorized user, log into the trading room that you want to view using a web browser. Then click on the “hamburger” options menu that appears in the upper left corner. It’s the one with three horizontal lines, as shown here.
IMPORTANT: If you're using an ipad or iphone to join the room via a web browser, be sure to use Safari, not Chrome or another web browser. Apple limits the capabilities of browsers other than their own Safari, preventing non-Safari browsers from being used for the required web communication protocols. Using the apps avoids this issue.
Click on the Mobile App Info button to bring up a window that includes instructions on how to install the app, along with your credentials that authorize you to connect to the BCT room. The window appears as shown here. You may need to click on the Mobile App tab to see these details.
In step 1, choose the app store button that applies to your device (Android or Apple), and download / install the app to your device. Clicking on the icons will take you to the app in the appropriate store.
You can then open the program and manually enter the credentials provided at the bottom of the dialog box (the actual numbers shown were removed from this image – you’ll see your own personal numbers when you view this window). You will need your Room ID and Pin Code. You will also need to provide your email address that you use to connect to the BCT Website, and choose the nickname that will appear next to your name in chat.
You can click the green Email Credentials button to have the credentials sent to your email. The Launch & Pair App button can be used if you’re on your device and you’ve installed the app. That allows you to enter your credentials.
Note that each room has its own set of credentials, so if you want to switch between the Futures room and the Stocks & Options room, you’ll need to adjust your credentials. It does not appear that you can join both rooms simultaneously from the same device, but you could use another device (e.g. a tablet or phone) or the web-based version to be in both. And indeed, you may be able to use the website to access the rooms without the app, or along with the app.
