7 great share trading platforms for mobile in 2024

Over the shoulder shot of young woman using mobile app on smart phone to check stock market data against illuminated light tubes.

Plenty of online share trading platforms offer mobile apps these days, meaning it’s now possible to trade, check your positions, and research your next move from virtually anywhere. 

But having the right platform for you in the palm of your hand is crucial. 

You’ll want to make sure your mobile share trading platform comes with intuitive features and a good user experience that fits your needs, without limiting your trading experience. 

While some of us just want the basic investing features, others want the full suite. 

So, to help you find what you’re looking for, we’ve broken up some great share trading apps into the following categories: 

1. Mobile share trading app for beginners

Tiger Brokers Tiger Account
  • USD$100,000 Demo account for practising US share trading
  • Active community of investors, 24/7 news feed, investing tutorials and how-to guides
  • Standard brokerage fee of 0.055% of the trade value ( $5.50 minimum brokerage per order. Other fees may apply.)
  • CHESS-sponsorship available
  • 2023 Mozo Experts Choice Award winner

  • Additional costs beyond standard brokerage fees for HK or US shares

Tiger Brokers provides an online platform for investors who want to keep their brokerage costs to a minimum. The standard brokerage fee is set at 0.055% of the trade value (A$5.50 minimum per order) for ASX stocks and ETFs (other brokerage fees apply for HK or US shares).

In terms of features, Tiger Brokers offers its users access to market data, charting tools, analytics, and an auto-invest feature, all of which can be accessed via the iOS or Android apps on your smartphone. 

Offer for new customers: 

Earn 7% p.a. on uninvested cash balance up to AUD $100,000 for the first 150 days, with a value up to AUD $2,877. Plus get US$30 Tesla (TSLA) and US$30 NVIDIA (NVDA) shares with an accumulated deposit greater than AUD 2000. T&Cs apply – for full details, go to the Tiger Brokers website.

Tiger Brokers’ Tiger Trade app is quite feature-rich for a mobile share trading platform. As a result, the comparatively busy nature of the interface may not be to everyone’s taste. However, the home page is highly customisable, so you can have as much or as little as you like on it. 

Aside from its customisability, the Tiger Trade app also has a social aspect where users can discuss stocks and market movements with the wider Tiger Brokers community. This communal aspect can be useful for beginners, as you can ask questions and find out what other share traders are saying about certain stocks. 

Perhaps the most useful feature of the Tiger Trade mobile platform is the USD$100,000 Demo account. It’s not real money, so you won’t actually lose your hard-earned cash or gain anything from successful trades (except maybe some tangible experience). 

Tiger Trade share trading app features 

  • Demo account for a risk-free trading experience 
  • Watch Tiger Trade Academy video courses to get up to speed
  • Community of share traders looking to discuss companies, stocks and market movements
  • Livestreams from investment professionals 
  • Customisable homepage with a range of features

6. Mobile share trading app for experienced investors

  • Live data
  • Trade Australian shares, international shares, options, warrants, CFDs, managed funds, and ETFs
  • Comprehensive reports, insights, and analysis
  • 2022 Mozo Experts Choice Award winner

Find out more

The CommSec Share Trading Account is a premium platform tailored towards experienced retail investors.

With access to major global stock exchanges, up-to-the-minute live data, exclusive reports, insights, analysis, stock news, watchlists and alerts, and more, a CommSec Share Trading account is a comprehensive tool for the modern investor.

However, you do pay a premium for the service. Brokerage rates vary depending on whether you settle your trades through a CommSec Cash Account (Commonwealth Direct Investment Account) or through an external account. 

Brokerage for those who settle through CommSec's preferred account starts at $5 per trade (for trades up to $1,000) and goes up to 0.12% of the trade value (for trades over $25,000).

If you prefer to serttle to a bank account of your choice, trades start at $29.95 (for trades up to $9,999.99) and go up to 0.31% of the trade value (for trades over $10,000).

Other fees also apply, but there are no monthly account keeping fees for your CommSec Share Trading account.

The CommSec Mobile share trading app gives you a comprehensive range of tools for managing your stocks and portfolio in real-time, accessing price history charts and detailed stock information, live market data and news, and custom watchlists with alerts. 

They’ve managed to pack a lot into the app for such a small screen size. Beginner investors may feel a steeper learning curve due to how much information is on the screen at once. Conversely, experienced traders may view that as a bonus. 

Stay informed with market news and videos from the CommSec media team, see the latest market movers, and view dividend and market announcements all within the CommSec Mobile app. 

A key feature that may tide Apple fans over is the ability to view and receive live alerts on share prices through the Apple Watch.

Note: The App Store (iOS) version of the app has far more positive reviews than the Play Store (Android) version of the app. So, this mobile share trading platform may be better suited to Apple iPhone and iPad users.

  • Access live market and share price data
