While stock trading software does not allow traders to place trades or close transactions, a trading platform is a computer program or software which investors use for opening and closing trades and controlling market positions. Similar to a stock trading software, these platforms are also offered for lower costs or for no cost on a condition to have a funded account with a broker and/or conduct specified number of trades per month.
In order to track the broader markets and stock performances, the trading platforms include market analysis software also. This enables them to incorporate various trading strategies through the up to date news maintained by the software based on the filtered stocks of the user.
