  • Hello,
    I am wholly new to this platform, can anyone suggest me which is the best stock trading global app with zero tax or low tax deduct?

  • May i plz know which Apps or websites allow trading with zero Brokerage?

    In other words, DPs like MOST, Sharekhan have Brokerage rates that are quite high (killing) for small investors. Plus the heavy Taxes. :((
    How can one circumvent the high Brokerage fees (taxes are unavoidable)?

    I did see one Comment that mentioned CashCow. Request more inputs from MK and others.
    Thanking u in anticipation

  • Hi, I am using eSauda Signals , its one of the best recommended app for stock trading. It really helps to understand the momentum of market and the its ratio of achieving all three level target is comparatively higher. As a trader would suggest to give few days to this help to understand it and would be helpful over a long period of time to make money.

  • Hi Mani,

    Read your above post. It is really helpful.

    However I feel you have missed one of the apps which may make to the above list.

    I feel you should review Edelweiss Mobile Trader app by Edelweiss. It is really powerful and free for all to use as well.

  • The most important part of stock market investment is how to find good stocks if you are busy in your job or profession. Infostock Equity Reports are an easy way to stock market investment. Search it on google, see its past performance and book latest report on its website free. Thanks!

  • Hi,

    Iam using the marketsmith india app from last 6 months. This is also unique, that app is working in CAN SLIM method.
    If possible you can also wright a review on that app.

  • I recently used one best stock market analysis app – IntelliInvest. It’s best features are Bubble and Stock Filter. Prediction model is not that good but yes we can take account along with other technical indicators. Mani Karthik please review it and look for it to include in this site.

  • Thanks mani bhai As your name has things I want gives me some suggestions to earn money online …@KumarTrideo
    Meet me on Twitter

  • Hey Mani! I like your idea of selecting the best free stock market android apps among the several ones. There was a time when I was using MoneyControl & ET Market for checking upon the opens, close, highs, lows, stocks… Bonds, Commodities, F&O, and many financial assets. But, for a while, I’ve been using Advisorymandi which allow me to customize my own watchlist with unlimited no. of scrips. Means, I can come back anytime later to go through it.

    Plus, I also found out that the pre-market & post-market reports and decodes are more freshly updated compared to other stock market apps.

    So, bottom line is, Advisorymandi is one hell of an app which one can use to make better investment decisions and bring everything at your fingertips.

  • I use MarketWatch on android and iOS both with same id. This app lets me track live profit/loss of my holdings, so I am always aware of my position and this helps me take better decision for my investments. also the app has option to become premium member for free and they also show live rates of mcx and info. so good deal.

      • Hi Mani,

        I recently used IntelliInvest app and i think you should personally review and include it in this list. They have awesome feature IntelliBubble and Stock Filter. Prediction tool is not the best but yes must try along with other technical indicators.

  • Sir Iam new in stock market i don’able to invest in stock due to fair I want an offliune trading aap for trading soni request you to suggest me

  • This blog is very informative. According to me, IntelliInvest app is good for the Indian stock market. It provides free live charts for Indian stocks.

  • Thanks for suggesting this list of free stock market apps. Now a days we need everything at our fingertips and now these apps have brought stock market at our fingertips.
