Best Stock App for Investors
Fidelity’s smartphone experience is well-designed, bug-free, and presents investors with a fantastic experience. Although active traders could be left seeking more, Fidelity delivers for the majority of investors, earning our award for No. 1 Investor App for 2021.
Best App for Options
ETRADE was ranked as the best in our 2021 Review because its applications are user-friendly and feature-rich. My advice is to exchange stocks with ETRADE Mobile and options with Power E*TRADE Mobile.
Best Stock App for Traders
TD Ameritrade provides $0 orders, great trading tools (including think or swim, our favorite trading app), outstanding market research, industry-leading beginner education, and dependable customer support. TD Ameritrade came in first place for smartphone trading, despite not being the strongest.
Best Stock App for Professionals
Both smartphones are well served by Interactive Brokers when it comes to mobile trading. Interactive Brokers has everything a professional needs to transact on the move, from lightning-fast streaming data to full-featured order entry and portfolio management.
Great for Stock Research
Merrill Edge’s smartphone app is simple to use, outstanding for research (including ESG research), and much surpasses the industry norm. Merrill Edge is an easy winner for loyal Bank of America customers because of its multi-account benefits and universal account features.
