    This is a pretty specific request, but does anyone know of any stock tracking apps that includes the Futures markets? I'm not trading pig bellies or anything, but I do like to see what the index futures are doing in the evenings and morning (post-market, pre-market), specifically the E-mini S&P 500.
    I'm a thinkorswim.com guy and they have an awesome iPhone app that will do futures, but no Android app....

    I don't know about an app, but I'd run away from futures if I was you. Way, way too risky. You might as well put it all on black in Vegas.

    You definitely are misunderstanding what he wants, "A.Nonymous". He wants an app to view futures, not trade them. For example, one can view futures for the Dow Jones Industrial Average in the morning before the markets open, to get an idea of where the markets will begin the day. I could look at futures at 9:20 AM and see, for example, that DJIA futures are down 50 points. At that point you can safely assume the market is going to open in the red and down about 50 points. So anyways, he isn't looking to engage in any risky trading of futures, as far as I can tell :)

    My broker has their own options app separate from the stock app.
    I'd ask my broker?

    Again, he is not trying to trade options, he simply wants an app to view futures before and after the markets open. This is what I am looking for as well, that is how I came across this thread to begin with... Of course, now I realize how old the thread is.

    I didn't say you had to place a trade?
