This isn’t a rant about Freetrade limiting buy/sell orders.
This is about the very real option that freetrade has to release funds held on account to their customers using banking methods that expedite the transfer.
A Telegraphic Transfer is immediate. There is a fee involved, yes. But there are some of us, like me, who would pay that fee out of pocket in order to have access to my money immediately instead of the standard 3-5 working days.
Freetrade should have been WELL AWARE of this option and included some communication about it alongside their earlier news of today. Only moreso given the current trade climate.
I have tweeted, messaged, emailed Freetrade all day to open a line of communication as to how we can get this done but haven’t heard a single thing back. Yet their twitter has still been constantly tweeting out apologies that do nothing to resolve customers’ issues.
Some of us don’t blame Freetrade for the position they have been put in, but there definitely could and should have been more done to rectify our positions.
