Best Stock Trading & Investment App 2021

Gone are the days when the Stock market was not everyone’s cup of tea. In the present time, stock marketing has grown rapidly in India due to the increasing number of newcomers starting their journey into trading.

Looking at the current scenario, the Covid19 pandemic has put everyone into a difficult situation and after the market crash followed by the recovery, many are looking forward to investing in the stock market as a source of secondary income.

Currently, there are multiple trading apps available in the market that allows you to directly trade from your smartphone.

The best thing about mobile trading is that stock marketing keeps changing and you have to keep an eye on the graphs. In this situation what can be better than a smartphone? However, each trading app has its own brokerage charges, Account maintenance charges, and Demat account opening charges.

In my earlier post, I mentioned the best mutual fund apps that you can use. In today’s post, I’m going to mention some of the best stock trading apps in India that not only take less brokerage fee but also fully safe and secure to use. All these mentioned apps have their own websites respectively and you can trade with both your smartphone and laptop easily.

Upstox stocks trading appUpstox is another leading player in the trading app market that comes with tons of features. You may also hear about Upstox in the IPL2021 advertisement.

Upstox also has its own refer and earn program where you can earn ₹500 for every successful referral. You can share it with your friends, colleagues and encourage them to invest in stocks.

With Zerodha you can not only invest in stocks but you can also invest in derivatives, mutual funds, and more. Currently, it has over 5+ million users and the list is still increasing rapidly.

You can use the Groww app to learn stocks marketing and once you get confident or experienced enough then you can go for Zerodha or other paid trading apps.

The best thing about the Groww app is that it has a unique refer and earn program where you will Rs 100 per referral whenever your referred person completes its KYC.

On the downside, Groww charges Rs 13.5 per company per trading day which is too much if you’re investing less amount.
