Bull or bear, market trends can change quickly, so it’s important to always have an eye on your portfolio, to make sure your shares are doing well. The best is if you can monitor them from your handheld and connect to the financial markets easily. Synchronize your device with the market websites to get up to date prices and monitor all important financial news.
