Love this app. Great for reading charts
I love MarketSmith on my desktop. I am stuck at home and trading stocks is my only job. I take part in 4 online meetings a week where MarketSmith is discussed. Each morning before my feet hit the rug I look at the days action on my stocks in the app. MarketSmith is always in sync with my desktop.
I have to agree with other users, this is a great product but expensive, at one grand per year it should include chart recognition. I do appreciate the App and wish for more features. I have used this app on my iPad for a few years with little done to make more features available to iPad users, I’m not sure why IBD news is unavailable on the app at present. Although it is a three platform tool, it’s full potential is realized on a laptop. My physical situation keeps me from sitting with a laptop for any length of time. (At this point I don’t plan having one again) I am so acclimated with iPad and this is my most used App, being able to make onscreen notes, draw trend lines etc. with access to more top rated screens would be something! I’m taking this opportunity to promote *eTables the electronic version of the Newspaper Smart Tables that includes the “10 Vital Ratings” & more, The IBD stock tables with five sub categories, plus The IBD 50, IBD Big Cap 20, IBD New America, IBD 85/85 screen, the ability to bring in your own lists and run your own screens filtering various vital ratings, and it’s a live ticker during market hours, I don’t think that’s all. This is not an app but works well with iPad and interfaces with IBD Charts, MarketSmith and Leaderboard. It fulfills the Daily in IBD Reasonably priced by month or yearly subscription. I’m a big IBD supporter, subscribing to everything in this review. Five stars to all things Investors Business Daily If anyone connected to Ibd ever reads these reviews say hello and thanks to Mr Bill O’Neil for everything.
Absolutely the best information all in one place.
MarketSmith changed the way I trade for the better. It’s a huge time saver for doing research and determining buy/sell points. Love it.
Nice app. Hopefully it will get enhanced to allow creating and saving scan results, among other things that are found in the PC desktop (web) version.
Love the intuitive set up of using MS. Still learning all the features of the software but so far my opinion is that it is very well designed (kudos to the software developers). If you embrace the complete IBD suite of products and focus your attention you can generate some good results.
05.17.2020 Update. So I use all of the IBD tools. MS is by far my most loved chart system and research tool. But I am very disappointed that after all this time that no drawing tools work on the iPAD pro. For the monthly price, I would think IBD could put some love in the mobile side of things considering how many of us do so much on our devices now. Give us a way to mark our charts like Lederboard or something. I love IBD. I love what they teach. I hate giving a bad review, but I pay a lot each month for their products and would like see the mobile MS get some love. 02.06.2020. Thank you for the email that a fix is coming for dark mode. Love all your products, I use MarketSmith, Leaderboard, Swing Trader, IBD Live and IBD Digital. You guys are above and beyond amazing. You take investing to so many levels. Each product nails it. Only other request I have is to give us the markup tools they use on Leaderboard, it’s clean and looks great and I would love to mark my charts like that in MarketSmith. 02.05.2020. New version 2.0.1 seems broke. Reinstalled and still broke. Many items are black and can’t see them. I do use dark mode on iOS. Also on charts the cursor detail like base info and such is just blank. Still an amazing job you guys do. Look forward to more features considering I only use and iPad Pro now. Miss some of the computer functions and the web version has some issues on iPad. Love the app, keep it up. Well worth every penny. Couple trades from the screeners alone will pay for the monthly.
This is a 100% unsolicited review. Everybody at this IBD firm should go home with a good feeling about what they do. I am 47, I have a life, a wife, 3 young daughters, age 15,13, & 12. I make a good living, and I am scared to death about making it all work financially. I plan to support, send them to college, buy them cars, and be there for them every step of the way just like any good husband, and dad would do. Being a husband, and a dad is the best part of my life. Failure is not an option!! This service is not just about stocks and money. This service is giving me belief that I can take care of the people I love, and maybe have a chance to retire before I am 80. LOL! Seriously, this app, website, and the entire operation of IBD, along with MarketSmith, Leaderboard, eIBD, IBD Live, IBD Digital, and SwingTrader is hands down the best system I have come across, if you are willing to dig in. From the product coaches, to the content it’s worth every penny. It also is backed by the history of William O’Neil, whose book and research is really amazing, and I read it maybe 10 years ago. The whole approach from fundamental analysis and then overlaying the technical analysi is so smart. If you don’t understand certain details about their system, there is a video for it, phone # to call, or an email. It’s thorough, it’s research and screens are such a learning experience, and helps get you focused on finding the best possible company in the best possible industry, at the best possible buy point and then tells you when to get out of the stock. That saves me time, money, and the emotions around the stock decisions. It has helped me build a routine, stay consistent, and be focused on finding great companies. There is so much data. If you are willing to learn, do the homework, follow their rules, be smart, and stay with the plan, you will make money! Take a bow people and never stop this service!
The app itself is clumsy. Can’t search stocks easy. Hard to create the alerts. Pretty sub par compared to their other products.
