Now that we've gotten the "free but not actually free" app out of the way, it's time to introduce to you the one stock market-related app on the Internet today that actually is free, and seemingly will remain free for the rest of its lifespan. Cue "ChartNexus", an app made by a parent company of the same name, that can take all of the essentials in stock trading and give them to you free of charge. There's no catch either- once you download it, you're free to use it as much as you want, regardless of whether it's 4AM on a Sunday of noon on a Tuesday- it really is 100%, honest to goodness free.
"So Austin, what's the catch?"
Well, I'd like to be able to tell you that there is no catch, but that wouldn't be entirely true. You see, there's no monetary catch, and you don't have to watch ten minute adds before you can use it each time, but there is a level of professionalism that is lost within a free app like this that can be found in most (if not all) paid apps online. So while you may save a few dollars, you'll miss out on some of the less essential, but still handy features present in something like System Trader. Even so, what do you get with ChartNexus?
Well, you basically get all of the essentials: charts, drawing tools, portfolio trackers, and trend watchers. One cool thing that you do get with ChartNexus and not without a lot of other stock apps is a free three year history, so you can look back at past trends and make decisions based on those as well. Necessary? No. Useful? Absolutely.
