Hello!

Really hope you enjoy the investing journey.

On Freetrade I believe they use the monthly performance preview, which is the % increase/decrease you are seeing.

Example, 1 month ago today the share price value is used as the baseline (0% change) and then any deviation from the baseline is what you see shown in red or green.

Hi, those are the 30 day change figures. Because the market is a bit volatile at the moment it’s hard to judge just based on those, so probably best to click on the ones you like and go to 1 yr or all time, then you can see the crash in march and how they’ve recovered (or not) from there.

I’m hoping ft let us change the figures one day.

Thankyou both for your rapid reply. I understand now.
Can you please suggest best Uk companies within Freetrade with good dividends.

If it’s a pure dividend play you are after, you won’t go far wrong with these ones to start you off:
KNOT offshore Partners (KNOP) 15.25% yield
BP (BP) 10.5% yield
Iron Mountain Inc (IRM) 9.5% yield
Altria (MO) 8.75% yield

Edit: :rofl: just realised only BP is UK listed, the other 3 are US listed :rofl:
