Outlined within the stock market survey are responses from three separate audiences: a General Online Audience, surveyed on Facebook; a Business Professional Audience, surveyed on LinkedIn; and, an Active Investor Audience, surveyed on By collecting responses from three separate audiences, Barchart was able to provide an intricate look into each individual cohort, giving financial and media firms the capability to clearly understand each group and which tools and features matter the most to them.

"Our survey thoroughly outlines how different groups of retail investors and traders, from novice to serious, engage with and monitor the stock market," says Barchart CEO, Mark Haraburda. 

“Through the responses we received we were able to uncover a significant amount of information, including everything from the importance of financial news and how often individuals check stock prices to which devices they are using and what types of tools users would like to see more of. Firms serving retail investors and traders will be able to leverage this information to enhance their current platforms and better engage these user groups,” added Haraburda.
