Scalpert Review


Mobile App

Scalpert Overview

Scalpert is a web and mobile app based charting and trading application from the house of Finvasia, a discount stockbroker in India. You can use this trading app across devices, that is, be it your computer, laptop, mobile or tablet – it is available in different variations at both web and app levels.

Scalpert allows you to trade and invest in the following segments:

  • Equities
  • Futures
  • Options
  • Currencies
  • Commodities

Although, Finvasia charges a specific fee for the usage of different trading platforms as “Technology Cost”, but Scalpert is availed to you for free by the discount broker. With this basic trading app, Finvasia looks to lure its potential client base with free trades without any brokerage or any other hidden charge.


However, when it comes to using a particular trading platform, its speed, performance, features, usability etc play a very crucial role. This is important for the simple reason that if a trading application does not perform well, you may lose out on potential profit-making opportunities in the market and in-fact you may actually face loss at situations too.
