Pro: The app is a great tool for day traders more so than long term investors. Long term investors usually invest and forget.
Con: The app works pretty well. The interface is a bit too plain. Not much to work with. There is a learning curve that is not explained well in the FAQ. All these things are minor though.
Aye/Nay: This is a Aye. This program has worked to create me a profit which is what it said it would do. If you follow the instructions which are color coded. Red for sell/green for buy you can not go wrong. $5 is worth it.
