I think ignore stocks and just do a top 5 ETFs. We desperately need to see more.
Which 5 are you after?
- Vanguard Aggregate Bonds ETFs (medium and long dated)
- MSCI EM Hedged Distributing
- S&P500 Hedged
- NASDAQ100 Hedged
Oh and commodities ETFs as well.
Here’s a list of all the share requests with 20 or more votes that don’t have the on Freetrade label. Just browsing through this it’s understandable why they have not made it onto the app yet, like ARK Innovation ETF - ARKK which doesn’t have a Key Information Document so cannot be offered in the UK. Or [Request ] EasyJet - LON:EZJ which requires nationality declarations.
P.S. - I pulled the topics by votes and I haven’t checked the list against what’s on the Freetrade Universe. So purely relying on the on Freetrade tag.
The KID issue is also relevant for all Global X ETFs. These cannot be offered.
Yeah there’s a few like this, a few requiring nationality declarations as well. Then there’s some which are not on UK/US exchanges so cannot be supported at the moment like Xiaomi Corporation - 1810 which is on the Hong Kong exchange. Then there are ones with low trading volumes, so if they add them to the app they might then have to deal with a lot of inbound queries on failed orders.
The only suggestion I have about all this is to somehow provide better visibility on why a stock isn’t in the app. Maybe exact search in the app should show stocks that cannot be traded right now, as greyed out with a possible reason. HL does this with ones that do not have a Key Information Document like Ark ETF Trust Ark Genomic Revolution Multi-Sector ETF (ARKG).
Three cheers for PRIIPs, where the EU government decided you weren’t capable of finding out risk/fees/etc information for yourself and demanded they all produce KIDs.
Narrotor: They didn’t bother.
Will Realty Income Corp be available in the Freetrade ISA ?
I really like this idea
Yes saf! I think we’ve suggested that in a thread somewhere before… Don’t know if it was but into it’s own ideas thread to vote on.
Also definitely need this feature for stocks that are on the app but undergoing a corporate action where trading is suspended e.g just eat, Eurasia mining, etc… Instead of it being hidden in the app with your shares/value if you are holding it. I haven’t been able to find those posts - can anyone else find them, or start an ideas thread for it?
If you create a ideas thread then I’ll vote for it
There’re old and potential new users who don’t spend their time in forums, let’s keep that in mind when adding new shares. Competing platforms are doing an ok job offering a lot of shares and option trading, which would be nice to see here.
Please can you advise when new securities will be added? Previously there used to be new updates every Friday however it looks like this stopped a few months ago.
Yeah keen to see this as would love to see Go Daddy added
First, fractional shares will roll out, and we’ll add the new stocks after then. Fractional shares are in the final stages of development.
I recommend signing up for our relaunched newsletters!
We’ll send you updates about building Freetrade at least bi-weekly now.
The social guy of FT said the shares will be rolled out “this week” two months ago.
You can understand our frustrations with misleading us with communicating misleading timescales.
Can you link a source? I’d be interested to see that as that’s never been my impression.
