Axis Direct App is one of those apps that show a wide variety in what they have to offer in terms of the number of features, analysis depth and whatnot, but falters a bit when it comes to smaller issues!

This implies that this mobile trading app has a lot to offer, but it seems there are some bugs/issues in the app that make the overall trading experience a bit mediocre. Either the product team is in hurray of the launch or the broker has an average testing team.

Nonetheless, there are some areas where the Axis Direct App certainly needs to work upon to become one of the best mobile trading apps for its clients.

Let’s understand the mobile app closely.

  • Users looking to monitor international stocks can do so using the Axis Direct App. You can’t customize these feed entities though.

  • On similar lines, you can access and view data across commodity and currency segments with the corresponding movements in this Axis Direct App.

  • At the same time, you can view some of the basic details of the stock with information on stock open, high, low, last traded price etc for an initial understanding of the company performance in the recent past.

  • You can also use the charting functionality to perform fundamental and/or technical analysis. However, the charting flows provided are pretty basic in nature with limited improvisations.

  • Be careful whenever you update the Axis Direct app, as a lot of users have complained that the app stops working or starts behaving weirdly post update is done.
