    "Forex Game is good for new stock traders in that it does not appear to actually be a functional trading app - it looks like it is just a simulator. I feel some reservations about recommending it, though, as the type of trading it trains you for is not really suitable for new investors. A more conservative approach to investing where you buy and hold stocks is much more sustainable than a style that closer resembles day trading - most people lose money with that kind of trading, even when they are more experienced and knowledgeable than a completely new investor.

    "I always wanted to try my hand at investing but have been too scared. With the Invstr app my confidence has grown immensely. With as little as one dollar I was on my way to learning about how to invest my money wisely.

    "This is a fantastic app for those newbies who don't know what they're doing with stocks. This app makes it easy. What's really cool is that you can start with fake money to get the hang of it before you start using your real funds. And even if you are experienced in stock trading, its still an easy and fun app for your stock trading. "

    "Stock Optimizer is a useful new app for beginner investors. It provides charts showing the best and worst performing stocks in the main US indices, the "riskiness" of each stock and it uses modern portfolio theory (think beautiful mind type maths but for stocks) to calculate optimal portfolios. Subscription is expensive - but I just subscribed for one month to get an idea of which stocks to research in more detail"

    "Forex Hero is very useful to get a general idea of how currency trading works. And it's incredibly friendly for beginners. You really learn to think in economic terms, meaning you'll start to recognize important patterns pretty quickly and understand why. And these two are very important things you need to be able to do if you want to be serious about forex trading. I really enjoyed the app and I'm actually looking forward to more content that explains other kinds of trading types such as stock trading for example."
