    Fidelity Investments today announced the release of a new, free iPhone application allowing brokerage customers to monitor their portfolios and execute trades directly from their iPhone or iPod touch.
    Fidelity customers using the new iPhone application to manage their accounts can take advantage of the company's new $7.95/trade pricing and also engage in commission-free trading of 25 iShares exchange-traded funds. Users who are not Fidelity customers can access most of the application's functions, including charting, market research, stock watch lists, and news feeds.

    This is bad if you dont know what you are doing and good if you do. Stocks are not a game.

    O RLY?! Cuz I just posted a new high score & have somehow unlocked God Mode. This beats the pants off the last game I tried (and didn't do so well at) - "Enron Defender"

    Finally an easy way for lower Manhattanites to drunk dial. :D

    Seriously, will be handy when a quick trade away from the computer is needed. Back in the 90's and early '00s I use to do this with "telebroker" but that was a PITA system b/c you had to spell out the ticker.

    (And stocks are a game of chance. There is no science to them. In the past couple of years companies thought to be rock solid and stogy have ended up in deep doo doo, most recently Toyota, whose vaunted attention to quality and value reinvented the industry. Of course we now learn they are crappier than any US car.

    For anyone with TD Ameritrade, The cheap "IStockManager" App in the app store is great for trading and research...

    TD Ameritrade has had an app since almost day one.

    So they are pretty late to the game!

    ETrade has had one for quite a while as well.

    It's not available in the Canadian App Store, presumably because they don't operate a brokerage in Canada. But I have an US-based account with Fidelity Investments! Damn-it.

    E*Trade must be limiting it to the US store as well, because they've got nothing here to work them. Makes no sense, as while they might need to change the pricing around a bit for each market, that's fairly easy once the app is built.

    Anyway, congrats to Fidelity for getting their app out. Looks pretty good!

    Dear Chupa,
    Have you ever been outside US?
    Grown up in Europe, I have been "exposed" to cars from Germany, rest of EU, Japan and US all my life. I have travelled a lot in both Asia and US.
    Believe me, Toyota is in general of a much better quality than US made cars. As a matter of fact, most EU cars are made with much better quality than US cars.

    Great! Just what this economy needs, people being able to trade stocks on a whim.

    It would be funny if someone thought they were playing a stock-trading game on their iPhone, then turns out they were making a bunch of real trade the entire time.

    Well, funny if he made money. ;)
