In a typical we have asked and vendors have listened fashion, Scottrade has released a mobile trading site which conveniently makes it compatible to all smartphones with a mobile browser. Normally, I'd given preference over a mobile application but in this case, Scottrade has opened itself up to all of its customers with a smartphone browser, it addressed the mobile OS hurdle with one simple solution.
Customers of Scottrade can enjoy the following benefits while accessing m.scottrade.com:
* Stock and ETF screeners
* Market research and news, including commentary, analyst views and a brief market calendar
* Stock quotes and research, including charts, options, fundamentals, insider transactions, earnings
* ETF quotes and research, including news and charts, options, portfolio, expenses and Lipper rankings
* SmartTextTM, which summarizes complex charts and information into plain English that is easy to understand
In general, I love mobile applications or sites from discount brokerage firms; it really empowers everyday Joes with the ability to handle their financial needs on the go. This is the kind of stuff that really enhances total mobile experience.
