U.S. discount stock broker Scottrade has a new mobile site with a rich feature set. Public features, available without login, include market research and news (markets overview, statistics, news & commentary, analyst views and a brief market calendar), stock quotes and research (news & commentary, charts, options, fundamentals, insider transactions, earnings, financials and a stock screener), ETF quotes and research (news & commentary, charts, options, performance, portfolio, expenses, Lipper rankings and ETF screener).
Scottrade customers can log in to make trades and view detailed balances, positions and order status.
The site is clearly designed for (and looks best on) advanced handsets with good CSS support like the iPhone. It also works perfectly in Opera Mini, the Symbian Webkit browser, BlackBerry and Android devices although the rounded corner buttons have an jagged appearance in these browsers.
