There are so many investing apps out there now — sometimes it’s hard to know which one to choose.

But if you’re tired of the gamification of the stock market and want to actually improve your investing strategies and knowledge, we like an app called Tornado.

Tornado is an investing app created by Wall Street veterans who want people to become better long-term investors. And they’re giving new users up to $1,000 to join and start improving their skills.

Skip the Games and Start Becoming a Smarter Investor

If you’re just looking for the next GameStop frenzy — this app isn’t for you.

But if you’re focused on understanding the why behind stock market trends, making smarter trades and investments and growing your net worth, Tornado is a better choice.

What makes Tornado different from those other investing apps is its commitment to helping people become better investors. All within your subscription, you can get expert-level insight and ask leading investors your burning questions.

Plus, the Tornado newsfeed is tailored to cover your investments and your interests — think of it like a personalized replacement for your Wall Street Journal ticker (but for a quarter of the cost).

Even better? Tornado will pay you to better your understanding of ETFs, index funds, retirement accounts and more with its Learn and Earn Program.

Get up to $1,000 When You Create a Tornado Investment Account

Signing up for a Tornado account can earn you some serious cash. When you create your account, you’ll be randomly selected to earn anywhere between $10 and $1,000. Plus, you’ll get a deposit bonus when you make your first transfer from your bank account.

You can also earn up to $50 when you participate in their newly launched Learn and Earn, which serves up professionally vetted educational content tailored to your experience level.

Tornado costs $7.99 a month and includes up to 40 commission-free trades (but you can trade more for additional costs). And by taking part in their Learn and Earn program, you can easily offset your monthly subscription costs.

You might be thinking — hey! Those other investment apps don’t charge a fee. They might not outright, but they take a share of each trade you make, which can add up to thousands of dollars each year — making a Tornado subscription a steal when you add up what you could be paying for all of its features separately.

So if you’re ready to become a better investor, create your Tornado account now and start improving your net worth right away with your raffle winnings.
