AngelBroking_Best_Trading_Mobile_App

With over 1 Million happy customers (as claimed) Angel Broking seems to be one of the most popular and top stock trading house in India today. You can open a DEMAT account pretty easily within 15 minutes in five easy steps.

Their highlight is zero fees for equity delivery and Rs.20 per order! More details here.

Overall, AngelBroking scores well in all departments. It has an amazing app, offers a very enticing product, and great customer service & onboarding process. Great for first timers and experts alike!

I personally think that it would take more than 15 minutes but that’s not the point. Their trading platform is a great value add and many veteran traders vouch for them.

I also love that they have a lot of videos, webinars, online classes etc on how to do trading on their platform. Check their YouTube channel.

It is a good platform to start trading for beginners as well.
You can get their apps here. Android and iOs app.

2. Kite by Zerodha

Kite by Zerodha - Best Trading App in India

Kite by Zerodha is a young and very popular app that has gotten popular in recent times. Based out of Bangalore, this company has been dishing out some amazing features and making waves in the stock traders community.

Which is why even many seasoned investors have been recommending Zerodha to their young investors who are beginners to stock trading.

Benefits of Kite by Zerodha

  1. Low brokerage charges compared to discount brokers.
  2. Excellent trading platform with a great user interface.
  3. Good charting platform.

Getting an account opened at Zerodha may take a lot of time though as their documentation and application process is kind of cumbersome. I had to talk to their customer support agent multiple times, send multiple documents and had to wait 13 days before getting access to the system.

Both Android and iOs versions of this app is available. Download links are below.

Download Android Version and iOs Version

3. Upstox

UpStox_Best_Stock_Trading_Mobile_App

Upstox is an upcoming & popular stock broker in India that promises completely FREE equity investments & only ₹20 per order for Intraday transactions.

Their stock trading app is probably one of the best designed one out there, with an amazing look and feel. Even new traders will have no issue figuring out and understanding their trading app.

They are new and young and very aggressive in their approach. But there are many complaints from existing customers about their customer support. I hope they have fixed it.

Upstox Stock Trading App Benefits

  • Better tech, better experience using their mobile app.
  • Easy account starting process.
  • New age platform, better customer service.
  • Only Rs.20 per order for intraday transactions.

4. 5 Paisa

Best Trading App for Beginners - 5 Paisa

5 Paisa is a stock trading platform that has been making big waves in the industry recently. With super low brokerage charges (10 Rs per transaction) this app is a hot favorite among young traders who are beginners to stock trading.

Some users are claiming that their mobile trading platform are better compared to Kite by Zerodha. You can check it out here.

There are several reports from their users mentioning that they have lot of hidden charges and their customer support is really bad.

6. Kotak Stock Trader App

Kotak Stock Trader is popular among loyal Kotak fans for some reason. It’s not the best app in terms of UX and UI but for getting things done, it is a good app. It lets you trade in equity, derivatives, Futures & Options and currencies.

It lets you do all the things that a typical stock trading app lets you do. But there are several customer complaints on public platforms talking about how they have lot of charges for every transaction. Also, they aren’t very popular for their customer service.

Download App Here : Kotak Stock Trader Mobile App

7. Share Khan Trading App

Sharekhan, is obviously a very popular name in stock trading. Is it trusted and recommended though? Probably not.

ShareKhan is listed under NSE and BSE and provides a decent trading platform to buy and sell shares.

I found it more as an educational platform and although you can do trading, it is not the best user experience. It’s a very old platform to be honest.

Compared to platforms like AngelBroking where the user experience is amazing, Share Khan falls back on many points.

Download ShareKhan Mobile Android App here.

8. Motilal Oswal Mobile Trading App

Whether you are a beginner or expert in stock trading, Motilal Oswal is a homely name in share market.

And their Mobile trading app is one of the most widely used and respected.

Motilal Oswal mobile trading app lets you trade equities, derivatives, currencies, commodities, futures & options, Mutual funds, IPOs etc.

But there are lots of negatives being reported by users.

Hidden charges for transactions, alerts not working properly, and several bugs. Ouch!

    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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
