There is a variety of apps for devices powered by Android. Such apps make trading more comfortable, as they allow traders to monitor market trends and trade anytime from anywhere.
I have already shared my favorite trading and news apps for iPhone. Continuing the theme of mobile trading apps, I want to consider the top 5 of the most popular apps for Android users today.
Investing.com is a convenient tool that provides users free real-time access to the world financial markets, streaming quotations for more than 30,000 financial instruments, charts, news, and analytics. Here you can find out the information on major global indices, stocks, bonds, commodities, currencies, interest rates, futures, and options.
An economic calendar is available in the app, so you can quickly find the dates for the upcoming releases. You can get notifications about economic events affecting the markets from around the world in real time. Plus, you can easily create, customize your own portfolio to monitor your investments anywhere as well as use technical analysis.
That’s what Dror Efrat, the Investing.com CEO, says about the app:
“We wanted our app to make it simple for our audience to stay connected to markets even when untethered from laptops and terminals and away from home or office. Using Investing.com on a mobile device, anyone can follow more than 30,000 financial instruments traded on more than 70 global exchanges”.
The MarketWatch is a financial app that helps traders stay up-to-date with the latest market data. Using this app you receive real-time stock quotes, breaking news stories, videos and market-moving alerts on your phone.
The tool also provides a customizable watchlist, detailed stock quote pages with key trading information, charts, as well as personal insights.
XE Currency is a currency-converter app that provides live exchange rates for every world currency and precious metals. With this app, you can calculate currencies on-the-go on your smartphone or tablet.
Users can set up to 10 currencies to monitor. There is also a paid version of the app, XE Currency Pro, which allows monitoring up to 20 currencies and getting rid of in-app advertisements.
StockTwits is the largest stock market community, a social network, similar to Twitter, but focused on traders and investors. This app is simple to use.
StockTwits for Android allows you to know what stocks are being talked about the most right now, see what is trending, get insights and ideas of real investors and traders, view charts and read the latest news, collaborate with other investors and traders. You can also build a watchlist to catch up easily on the stocks you are interested in.
Forex Hours tells investors when major Forex centers in the world are open and closed. The status and local time are updated in real-time. Using this app you can place trades when liquidity is better.
In addition, you can receive notifications/alerts to be informed when the market you choose is opened and closed.
Not so long ago, I told you about my favorite apps for iPhone: MetaTrader 4, Bloomberg, Yahoo Finance. They are also available on Google Play. Whether I need to make a trade, or watch quotes, or find out the latest market news updates, I use these apps and get all the information I need.
