An update on adding thousands of new US stocks 🇺🇸

Really? I guess you really do think we’re stupid then.

For example, 31 January you posted that the upgrade the invest would be done in a couple of weeks. On the 8 Feb Sam posted the upgrade would be done “next week”.

The upgrade was announced finished on 28 February.

Version 2.7.9 changelog said fractionals will “arrive in the next few weeks” on 29 January. Version 2.8.5 on 10 March and things are still “just around the corner”.

On 11 February in your blog you wrote instant trades would be available “in the next couple of weeks”. They were available on 4 March.

What is your definition of a few weeks? Or a couple?

Yes, deadlines get missed in software engineering. And if you can’t meet them then that’s exactly why you shouldn’t be misleading customers.

No that quote came from a post Sam made on 8th February. However, it was in reference to the upgrade onto Invest but the point is still valid.

post 191.

When the upgrade happens, which it has now finally for all of us, the post seem to imply that the four features would be rolled out quickly as per Sam’s post.

True, but 90% of the market isn’t even available to us yet

Now we are all on the new platform when will the new stocks be added ?

Yes! I can’t wait!

Is this one still going to happen? :thinking: They have suspended trading since the 7th and currently being raided by the regulatory body in China!

Are you adding them in a batch? And when will they be added?

They are being added after fractionals are fully rolled out so end of May or start of June at the earliest :no_mouth:

NIO!!! I’m excited now :grinning:

Surely AMAT made the cut?

I second that. I assume this won’t be added given that they 're essentially done? Defrauded billions.

I believe they’ve introduced a minimum order size of £2 as a temporary measure due to technical reasons with one of their partners. Ian (CTO) mentioned on the AMA last night

I thought this (minimum order) would only apply to US shares, not UK shares as well.

It doesn’t actually let you buy fractional shares on UK stocks, you just get the same message displayed by the looks of it

You also can’t excuse an order on UK shares under the value of £2

Hi all, to keep a consistent trading experience across any market, we’re introducing a flat £2 minimum order size for both UK and US trades.

The message you’re seeing there @Pdw kicks in between £2 and £3 just to let you know it’s a little close to the minimum to avoid you getting into a situation where you can’t sell because the share price has dropped.
