The world is expanding my friend, not physically but digitally. With the pandemic, how we connect digitally has taken a new shape altogether. This expansion is visible in our favourite world of stocks too. We have got more than 6000 companies listed in NSE & BSE alone. Plus a flood of IPOs is adding to the list. 

So, in a nutshell, we have plenty of choices to choose from. But how to make that choice? 

There were days back then when equity research, stock analysis and such things were done by sophisticated bankers and analysts but due to the easy excess of information, we have plenty of data available to analyse our stocks ourselves with stock analysis tools. Today, especially for you, we have reviewed two very popular stock analysis tools. Hope you like the review!

Our Verdict

As far as features are concerned, it is evident that Ticker Tape offers more compared to screener.in. But it is indicated that screener.in provides more reliable data. The fees structure of Ticker tape is flexible and user friendly. Thus, more stars for this one to ticker tape. Nevertheless, take a look at our overall ratings for both the products.
