SparkFin is a stock market app designed to help active traders manage their investments and quickly discover new opportunities based on economic and social trends as well as technical performance metrics.. This month (in the next week or so) we’re beginning our transition to a portfolio management app. We’re starting with an all new watchlist that now tracks individual stock performance over time, provides real-time stock alerts, additional stock recommendations based on your holdings, and a few other cool features.
Additionally, new updates are planned to release every 2 weeks until we’ve fully completed our transition. These updates will include: a revamped discovery screen, new discovery algorithms, trading from within the app, brokerage account portfolio integration, multiple watchlists, social and chat features, real-time news updates, and much more…
The idea originally came from Howard Lindzon (former CEO of StockTwits and investor in Robinhood).
Jason Pang (CEO of SparkFin) is a serial entrepreneur which started after he got his start as the first employee of DivX. He later founded a messaging company called SkyBuy and Prima Cinema.
