Last uncross went @8p
Or you can pick it up instantly on Freetrade for 8p … I just did…to test it!
New uncross coming very soon…
Last uncross went @8p
Argh that is annoying to hear. I should have opened an S&S ISA with FreeTrade.
Should have Uncrossed 09:15 @ 7.90p
I just managed to buy in 3 minutes
How does Freetrade compare to T212 expeirience? @Finki
It shouldn’t matter a large amount in the long run but it would have been nice to get in lower.
I’m slightly worried about when it comes to selling when it peaks and potentially having to for a couple hours hoping it stays high.
Yeah the selling part is what I’m concerned about too now.
I do feel like T212 have changed something since you’re enquiry yesterday, last week I had an order open for 2 days and it didn’t go through
ahh man I was trying to get in on this at 5p :’(
T212 are clearly watchiing this thread and executing GGP
I’ve thrown other SETqx trades at them and they HAVE NOT uncrossed … (T212 ops quickly looking around their pending orders in the background right now?)
T212 vs FT : Horses for courses. I like both. I use them both. The auction “can” yield benefits, but immediate execution is comforting. FT customer service is pretty good but my experience of T212 customer service has been “robotic” and no confidence they actually knew what they were talking about. That said - it’s free, it’s good (mostly). I use both I’ll continue to use both.
I’m now setting an alarm 10mins before each auction so I have time to check what the price is.
I have a FreeTrade general invest account but I really dont want to buy in that especially as it could easily be x10 this year and avoiding CGT.
That’s where it got really frustrating. After I nudged them to force through the purchases at auction I then ran into a brick wall with customer services who insisted “some AIM stocks are illiquid” etc… A copy/paste response. When I explained I understood the mechaics of auction trading I still got the same resposne. When I screenshot the order book showing uncrosses and how I should have been in that sale…guess what? Same response!
Yous pays your monies yous takes your choice
Just got another batch on FT @7.8
So - to my mind - not a lot of point faffing with the opacity of the auction.
Personal choice. I understand savings are savings.
I’d personally choose to get hours of my day back!
That said I am a nerd and I am in lockdown.
Maybe I’ll hack something together for noobs that don’t understand this kinda thing… hmmm… thinking hat on
I kind of want to chuck in a fair amount to this but I’m hesitant as I’ve been before with AIM. I’ve got amount a million shares with SRSP and thats suspended forever after years of nothing. Waiting for p20 on that.
I’m hoping the news with GGP at the end of the month is excellent and it
I’m surprised T212 forums are so quiet.
@trading212_team any chance you can make GGP instant trading
So I’ve just topped up another 15000
It was p7.70 but the deal went through at p7.80 only £15 lost from buying at that but not cool.
Also it went through before 11am so what’s going on??
So I’ve now got an avg p7.63 share instead of what should have been p6.63 without all this messing about. So £300 wasted with the penny diff. That’s quite a bit when it’s only a couple thousand in.
Ok WTF just tried it with 100 and it went through in 60 seconds!
Has something changed in the last day?
Edit2: So I try with 1500 shares at 11:39am and its pending 11mins and counting…
Edit3: 39mins waiting luckily it stayed at p7.60 in this time period.
Market orders are placed fine at the moment, but I tried to place limit order as well without success its still pending, any reasoning behind this?
We’ve been working on making the market orders instant.
Is there a reason that some go through instantly whilst others are taking 45mins atm?
It’s much better than waiting at specific times in the day but still tricky to buy dips when they last for 5mins and uncertain when your order will go through.
Well I’m happy with holding 45,000 now and back to a p7.5 average.
Roll on the end of the month! 20p a share
It should help those people that say “the app displayed a price of 6p but I executed at 8p I’ve been robbed!”
Or maybe it won’t.
I dunno. Either way I’ve had fun hacking it together. Should be available tomorrow (maybe).
Works on any LSE stock… with reasonable accuracy from my testing
