Busy investors who want to track their investments while they're on the move are finding that brokerage firms are beginning to address their needs.
To see which firms provide the best mobile trading capability to consumers, financial services industry advisory firm Corporate Insight recently sampled the mobile trading features of 21 brokerages, from deep-discounters to full-service firms. TD Ameritrade AMTD and Fidelity came out on top, but surprisingly, only 11 of the 21 firms surveyed offered any type of mobile trading capability, and only six of those offered downloadable mobile apps. While there isn't yet a large group of active mobile traders, the number of mobile investors is expected to grow as consumers increasingly utilize mobile applications.
In addition to upgrading the capabilities of mobile-formatted websites that can be accessed from smartphones, brokerages have begun offering mobile trading apps to help clients stay connected to their accounts. David Rosenberg, Corporate Insight's senior analyst for brokerage firms, said the availability of mobile trading on a variety of platforms and the number of mobile capabilities offered were the two biggest considerations in ranking the firms.
The best firms were considered those which allow users to complete the most tasks similar to what they might do on a computer, such as trading, view account holdings, transferring funds, viewing charts, looking up real-time quotes, accessing investment research, pulling up market news and managing investment watch lists, he said.
TD Ameritrade and Fidelity received the top rating of "A" among the 11 brokerage firms in the report by offering the best all-around mobile capabilities. All firms in the report, except Sharebuilder, have mobile-formatted websites and most have upgraded the technology to help investors stay better connected to their accounts. Fidelity's mobile website was rated the best, largely for its ability to allow trading of stocks, options and mutual funds, a currency exchange, plus providing quotes, charts, watch lists, alerts, news and market information.
