Introducing the Stock Requests category 📈

(Alex Sherwood) #1

Today we’re moving our stock requests to the community with a new #stock-requests category :tada:

Everyone can request the stocks & ETFs that they’d like Freetrade to add to our Stock Universe (so that you can invest in them), by creating a new topic for their stock in this category. Other users can vote for these requests to help us prioritise what to add.

I’m hoping that this will help introduce users to stocks that they’re not familiar with already, make voting more transparent & enable us to give you better feedback about when / whether we’ll be adding your requests :boom:

You can see the most popular requests here.

Feel free to discuss the reasons why you’re interested in a particular company in these threads too. But keep the investing chat guidelines in mind of course :wink:

So check out the current list & if you don’t see a stock / ETF that you want, create the topic now.

Please follow this template for these topics:
  • An image of the company’s logo
  • Topic’s title is the brand name, a ‘-’ & the stock ticker symbol e.g. Apple - AAPL
  • Include a short description of the company
  • A link to the company’s Wikipedia page
  • A link to the company’s page on Google Finance (these are tricky to find search for “[company name] Google Finance” on Google, then copy the URL from there (the green link)

I can add this for you after you’ve created the post if you need me to :smile:

There’s more details about our plans for US stocks here too -

Great idea, thank you! But does is it necessary to add stocks that are in the universe already? I was under the impression they were going to be offered once the US stocks are launched.

It’s generally not necessary to add those, although I’m curious to see the most popular stocks anyway..


Yes, so would I, some sort list showing popular shares on Freetrade would be cool to see. It’s more a curiosity than anything else.

I wonder how long I’ll be able to hold on to the 50 votes this time :sweat_smile:
