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:

@alex.s Thanks for the link. So how does this work. Once I put a request in how many days will I have to wait before the stock appears on Freetrade?

Or is it simply a request and although it may be considered, it may never even appear on the platform? Thanks

There isn’t a set timeframe for adding certain stocks, we’ll do our best to add any requests as quickly as possible & let you know if we can’t for any reason, like this.

Just a quick heads up - there’s not a discussion about whether we should simply add all stocks & why we haven’t here Adding all US tradable stocks, ETFs, preferred stocks.

Please get involved in the discussion there because your posts will be more visible, as we sometimes have to hide posts in the #stock-requests category from the Latest feed, when there have been a lot of requests :raised_hands:

I’ve got about 30-40 US stocks I’d like to request. Do I need to make a new post for each of them?!

Hi How do I vote for a stock to be added that is already mentioned on the #stock-requests?

(Emma (#20 😎)) #17

At the top of the topic for that stock there’s a big purple vote button. Just tap that

Would it be possible in the future to add stocks from China?
I’ve got my eye on a company that seems to be doing big things.

Given the predicted growth in the European market it would be great to see some CBD stock options available l :slight_smile:
