Best Mobile Trading Apps in India
Forget about 80’s and 90’s when traders used to wait for next day’s news paper to know price of their stocks, till recently traders were paying the broker for the trading platform and the data-feed for it. But nowadays technology has become major distinguishing factor between two Stock brokers. The broker who does not offer latest trading platform with must have features is left behind in the competition.
When we say Trading Platform, it also include Trading Apps for Mobile and Tablets given that we have entered the “Post -PC” era. So more and more brokers are concentrating their effort on providing Best Mobile Share Trading Apps in India.

Points to consider while choosing the Mobile Trading App

The Mobile platform is the most important and primary thing to be considered while choosing the mobile applications, IOS & Android are two most preferred platforms while Windows and Blackberry are also widely used. It’s beneficial to know that which platform will be supported by your broker applications.

Higher the number of downloads, higher is the possibility of product being top notch. Check out the number of installation at Google play store or IPhone app store. It gives fair idea of how popular is the mobile app and also the stock Broker.
- Review of the App
Who else can be better source of information than the real people who have used on their own and taken timeout to provide their feedback. Check the reviews on play store, but be wary of some of the fake reviews. App with highest rating necessarily need not be the best one.
