Stumbled across this by accident, but it’s truly eye opening
I’ve just started using Simply Wallstreet for analysing my portfolio, as recommended by someone on here. If you haven’t tried it give it a go - really useful info, and they have a deal on at the moment so works out about £5 a month.
When setting this up I had to input all my trades over the last twelve months. And this is where the eye opening moment was. In 12 months I have done 156 individual trades, and these have cost me nothing apart from stamp duty. Had I done these trades with my old broker Halifax it would have set me back £1,870
Now I know due to Free Trading I do lots more small trades, things I never would have done with Halifax @ £11.99 a trade. But even so, £1,870 - wow.
Has anyone saved even more in fees in 2019? Would be good to see who holds the record
