This morning I used the app to buy shares with a ‘latest price’ of £9.89 per share showing.
However, I was charged £10.34 per share in the app.
I went back to check the market price and it was still around £9.89
I believe this is the second time I have had around a 5% negative difference in share price on Freetrade and after checking cannot see a reason why.
I then experimented and sold a single share. For fifteen minutes they up on the LSE at £10.17 a share yet I only got £10.10 at Freetrade.
Could someone explain to this novice how this has worked. Only the purchase disparity means I lost a lot of money on two large trades.
