Freetrade: Free Share Trading

#553

Anyone now if and when the Android app is going to be released? It was originally slated for late 2017…

Early next year, definitely by April. The android waiting list app will available by Christmas

Got access and made my first trade over the last couple of days. Freetrade is very slick although clearly an MVP for now - no US stocks yet, no marginal stocks, no notifications, etc. Looks promising and excited to see how it develops.

Would be awesome to see some integration/collaboration with Monzo, via a pot for example…

This is an insightful podcast. Adam Dodds held his own well at points where he needed to; some good exchanges with Scalable Capital. Covers topics such as democratising investing, community, thoughts on banking integrations, and more:

Good news if you’re still waiting (and aren’t android)

They’re busy today. Anyone for ISA testing?

Well that’s a load of rubbish. Closed a couple of times and a few issues at the start but always fine for me. And that was at testing stage

I’ve never had any issue with orders being rejected, myself.

Am I right in thinking Freetrade has a paid mode he could use for instant trades were that important to him?

TBH, the tagged mention of Revolut at the end makes me think he’s a shill anyway (he may well not be, just saying the optics aren’t good). Definitely a shill, as @Rat_au_van has uncovered. :rage:

Yes, with a mere £1 he could have got it instantly.

In fact, this is what you would do as a day trader to avoid the risks of intraday volatility. If he is saving £1 to expose himself to 0 to 5 per cent swings per day, something is definitely wring with his “earning strategy” :joy:

The fact he’s saying a product that hasn’t been launched and full details are still unknown is better? :grin:

Um. Coincidence?

He fits nicely into how I picture Revolut and their culture.

If you’re right (and I think you are), then he’s surely fallen foul of FCA guidance on social media and customer communications(FG15/4) where they talk about how employees use social media(Annex 1, Section 3.2).

I’d like to pretend I have an exhaustive knowledge of the topic, but actually I remembered Monzo shared their social media policy recently, so I searched for that and looked for what might apply.

Anyone fancing reporting him/grassing him up? :smiling_imp:
