I’m a fan and investor of Freetrade, but all I can say is that I use Trading212 for all my investments now. They have no FX fee, the ISA is free and they have more stocks including nationality declaration.
Not sure if that business model is sustainable, but from a pure cost efficiency standpoint I use that broker. I prefer Freetrade’s ‘ethos’ and customer service, but on pure money saving they would need to compete with that to bring me back. So in terms of a wishlist, it would be an offering that is competitive in this regard.
Get a new homepage graph that just plots profit or loss because the current one is useless when you make monthly deposits and gets completely distorted.
I have gone on about this for the past 2 years and will continue to until it’s resolved because it’s such an easy fix and I cannot for the life of me figure out why they haven’t fixed it. Just add a home page graph that only plots profit/loss and doesn’t get distorted by adding/withdrawing money.
I hope they focus on all of that before things like crypto which feels to me like a distraction which plenty of other apps do anyway.
Things I think are likely to happen in the next few months:
Euro stocks announcement
Currency accounts in some form to support Euro stocks
Some more IPO listings (freetrade has been great at getting these on quickly)
Would be great to see autopilot at some point soon too.
I’m feeling pessimistic about other features given the paucity of communications/features from freetrade over the last 6 months and the departure of Ian (do they have a new CTO yet?) but would be happy to be surprised. They could do with tidying up the ideas section here, because a few of those have been ticked off already in some form I think (e.g. watchlist and limit orders).
Yea I’ve gone on about it for so long it’s kind of ridiculous it hasn’t been fixed yet. I’ve seen plenty of other people raise it too. The homepage graph is the first thing you see but it has literally never been of any use to me because it’s completely distorted by my deposits.
It’s so simple to just add a graph to the homepage that simply tracks profit/loss, don’t know why they ignore this it gets on my nerves sometimes. I have literally never used that homepage graph, it’s bad from a UX point of view if the main thing you see when you open the app is outright useless.
It kind of does but it’s TWRR % and is updated once a day and I’ve noticed some days it is not updated.
From a UX point of view it’s an outright bad design, why have a useless graph as the first thing I see when I open the app it tells me absolutely nothing. I have to go out of my way to get to something useful. The homepage graph should show the profit/loss in £’s the data is already there in numbers next to the overall portfolio value, all they have to do is plot that value on a graph.
