Stock Watch Help

What do I need to get started?

All you need is an iPad® or iPhone® and the Stock Watch app!


What exactly does Stock Watch do?

Stock Watch allows you to watch up to 8 NYSE or NASDAQ stocks. Based on the price you paid for the stock and how many shares you own when compared to the current* share price, you are able to easily see the overall monetary gain or loss for each stock. Even if you don’t own the stock, you are still able to watch the stock’s progress which can give you a better understanding of the stock’s trends.
