Alpha available yet?

(Kenny Grant) #1

Is anyone using an Alpha account, do they get 50p trades yet?

Freetrade is Out :fire: Share your first thoughts once you get access!

Alpha is not yet available and the instant trades are currently at £1. It is the very-soon-to-be-done feature and I assume will be available during the wider rollout (maybe @alex.s could clarify)

We don’t have a timescale for launching Alpha yet I’m afraid but watch this space :eyes:

Thanks, thought that might be the case. It won’t make a big difference till ISAs are available anyway.

Any updates on this or your other plans? It’d be nice to have some kind of tentative schedule something like:

  • Short term 3 months - ISA, Alpha
  • Medium term 12 months - android, limit orders
  • Long term - sipp, crypto, other assets

IMO such a scedule would be beneficial both for freetrade (nothing motivates like a deadline) and users planning opening ISAs say. Nothing with dates, just something to set expectations as at present it’s not too clear which things you plan first.

That sounds like the roadmap that we’ve promised to share. We’re not quite ready to publish it yet but it won’t be much longer until we do.

Great thanks. I’d forgotten that was coming, I see I’ve even liked your post!
