The Edelweiss Mobile Trader For Ready Reference


The EMT/Edelweiss Mobile Trader is the India’s highest rated stock market app. Its got a 4.4 Google app rating. And I’d say its well deserved. Its fast, clean and has a contemporary feel to it and packs just about all the information you could want in one place. I simply love it.

An iOS version, rated 4.3 is also available for Apple aficionados.

What are the truly fab features of this free trading app?

1.)For one, you the user,always have access to real-time streaming quotes ,both NSE and BSE, and can track your watch list, monitor the  markets and track your holdings,even if you aren’t logged in. And there is none of the 2-3 seconds lag found in most comparable apps.

2.)Then again you can can track and trade across Equity, Equity Derivatives, Commodity, Currency Derivatives, NCDs, Bonds, Debt and e-SIP across NSE, BSE, MCX and NCDEX, all in one place. This is not something you can find being offered by all brokerages ,all in one place, with a single log-in. Certainly my current service provider doesn’t.

3.) Next you  can see the Top Gainers & Losers, Most Active, 52 Week High & Low, Volume Buzzers, FII DII Flows, Sector Performance, Roll Over Analysis, Option Chain, etc. details all in one place in a concise and easy to locate manner.

4.)If day trading is your thing,this  app also offers users live, tick-by-tick intraday charts to help you take the right decisions on the move. Read more of this post

If a person is good at figuring out which way the interest rates will move,he could buy NCDs cheap and exit them when their prices peak.This could potentially increase returns.

Investing in NCDs


wealthymatters.comA non-convertible debenture is a fixed income instrument where the issuer agrees to pay a fixed rate of interest to the investor. An NCD cannot be converted into equity of the issuing company unlike convertible debentures.NCDs are good substitutes for fixed deposits,especially company deposits.

Debentures are of two types secured and unsecured. The debentures with a “charge” on the assets of the issuer are called secured debentures. So in case of a default by the issuer, the secured debenture holders are paid by selling the assets against which the charge was created. Secured NCDs offer lower interest than their unsecured counterparts. Read more of this post
