On small cap listings the spread can be wide and limit orders don’t trigger automatically dispite hitting the area many many times. It would be great if i see the price i want on the live Google finance listing to be able to test the limit order myself. I don’t want to do a regularly manual order because I’m certain to get a price i don’t want.
If the limit order fails because the price is too high that’s great. At least i know. It would take the frustration out of buying small caps on freetrade.
