“Many consumers trust their stock market app for accurate data yet in reality, they may not be getting what they expect. Accuracy and speed varies widely based on data source and technical implementation," said Jason Pang, CEO of SparkFin. “SparkFin is designed to be the ultimate stock market app using the most accurate market data with custom tracking features that no other stock app provides.”

Nasdaq (NDAQ) is a leading provider of trading, clearing, and exchange technology across six continents and SparkFin chose them to ensure consumers receive accurate market data. “Look for the ‘SparkFin powered by Nasdaq logo’ to ensure you’re viewing officially licensed, real-time stock quotes,” says Mr. Pang. SparkFin is also working with Nasdaq to develop educational content aimed at those who are new to trading and investing in the stock market.

"SparkFin users are automatically notified when Nasdaq-100 companies like Apple, Google, or Facebook show up in lists - like ‘New 52-Week Highs’ or ‘Monster Volume’ - so that they can take action. We want to create stories around stocks with context and curation so SparkFin becomes your daily investing assistant to understand the markets,” added Pang.

SparkFin is a San Diego, California based FinTech company that created the first natively mobile stock discovery platform to instantly create, share, and find stock ideas. The SparkFin app can be downloaded for free from the iTunes store.
