Presently, there are some traditional high-end financial tools that are available in India. Most of these are very expensive and have mind boggling and complex features that take a lot of efforts and time to understand. On the other hand, Stock Edge has been developed in such a way that it not only hides the behind the scenes complexity relating to data analytics but also delivers the result oriented information mostly in visual form at the lowest cost possible: its basic version in current form is free!
