Understanding Investment Tools

The goal of investment tools is to help you to manage your investments. There are many different types of investment apps available. You will find ones that give stock ratings and analysis, create financial modelling and forecasting, give portfolio analytics and breakdowns and show you ETF portfolio risk management and balancing. These are just some of the functions that you can expect to find in the Investment tools section of the site.

The Best Investment Apps Available

As there are quite a lot of investment apps available, you may be wondering which ones are worth trying out. One which has had quite a good reception so far is the Earnings Event Desktop – Lite.

This app is free to use and it gives you all of the latest news briefs, EPS history, earnings calendars and tradable forecasts. You can choose to receive only the information that you want and you can register multiple portfolios. It is really easy to use and the best thing is – it’s free!

Another great app that you may want to try out is the ETF research app. This is free for 14 days but then you will need to pay $33 a month to keep using it. The features that you receive do make up for the monthly cost. You will be able to view comprehensive ETF ratings and you will have access to investment decision support tools. It is by far one of the most powerful investment apps available on the market. The heat maps provided are also particularly good according to user reviews.

If you are interested in minimizing your investment risk then the Vimaa portfolio risk manager is a good free app to try out. The great thing about this app is that it gives you the same financial risk models that are used by professional money managers. You will get to learn more about how your risk affects your potential for loss or gain. It will also show you where your risks lie in the investment.

Finally another great app to try out is the MarketGrader Movers and Shakers. This shows you the stocks and shares that have had the biggest changes each day. It allows you to see quite early on which stocks are worth investing in. It keeps you ahead of the game and it is completely free to use.

These are just a few of the best investment apps available. Using them will help you to increase your chances of making profit and help you to avoid potential risks.
