How to find the best stock trading app for you
Before signing up for a stock trading app, consider these factors:
- Fees. Beyond commissions per trade, look into account minimums, transfer fees and varying costs to trade more complex securities.
- Available securities. Some platforms offer a wide range of securities, while others specialize in only one or two.
- Research tools. Beginners may want an app with educational resources, while active traders will need robust analytics tools.
- Mobile support. Apps typically aren’t as robust as some desktop versions of the same platform. (Note: Not all apps also offer a corresponding desktop trading platform.) Check feedback in Google Play and the App Store.
- Customer feedback. Explore customer feedback in places like the Better Business Bureau and Reddit to find out what investors really think about the platform.
The best stock trading app depends on what kind of investor you are. Be sure to compare fees. But also look at what other resources and features an app offers and how its cost structure matches up with your own trading needs.
