StockTouch is like a living, breathing Monet painting of the top 100 US and Global markets. Most financial industry professionals that have been trading for over 20 years probably remember the days of the Quotrek. You would be looking at a screen that resembled the colors found in the Matrix movie. It was a black screen with tiny moving green symbols, numbers and letters. How far we have come in the last few years.
This incredibly visual app is able to clearly display a vibrant spectrum of the living breathing financial market movements with a mere glance. The app tracks the top 100 US, Global, ETF and a list of your personal favorites. You are also able to drill down a bit on the fundamentals and technicals. The navigation of StockTouch is just that- touching, pinching and tapping motions will change your view from macro to micro within milliseconds. The app is snappy and fun to use. All the information is delayed by 15 mins, but hey, it’s free in the iTunes App Store.
Chaikin Analytics is a powerful stock analysis and idea generating platform on the iPad. For you to really appreciate Chaikin Analytics, you have to know the history of its creator. A long time ago in a galaxy far away there was a young man named Marc Chaikin who started his career as a stockbroker back in 1965. He had a knack for options and futures trading. His determination and brilliance to build a better mouse trap would guide him to build the foundation for proprietary market indicators back in the 80′s. We need to fast forward from his early use of the PC to refine and implement these trading strategies of which were based upon original economic indicators and computer algorithms.
Many traders, stockbrokers and money managers recognize his branded analytics. Chaikin Money Flow, Chaikin Volume Accumulator and his development of the Accumulation/Distribution Line Indicator are just a few. Today we can share in the dividends of his life’s work. This simplified Titan of a program is called the Chaikin Power Suite. Marc with the help of his son Eric, has distilled this complex information like magic (Eric says “it’s not magic…it’s math”) from a professional grade stock tool made easy to read for the individual investor.
The system recognizes and displays trends and signals with a simple green/red Chaikin Power Gauge Rating: green for bullish and red for bearish. Pretty simple. You can find this app in the iTunes App Store as a free trial on the iPhone and iPad. If you can harness its power to enhance your business you will find value with a subscription that is currently $195/month or $1,950/year (a 20% savings).
