Trade Express – This is a exe based software which you have to install on your PC. This gives a feel of trading terminal with live quotes, market watch etc. This also have a mobile version called RMOBILE express which provide trading on mobile with an app.
Tick and Tick Pro : These are new robo products launched by Reliance recently which looks at the bigger picture like news , screeners etc. This help you in taking the call on which stock to buy easier. Tick Pro provide the same functionality but on derivatives products. So they will allow you to buy a straddle or covered call in one swipe. Both of these software are free of cost with account opening but I think that this would be helpful for only traders who exactly understand what they are looking at.
