Has T212 Made a difference?

I hope this isn’t a daft question but I was wondering with websites making it easier for people to venture in to stocks and shares, have websites like T212 made a different to the stock market?

Obviously the pandemic has as well but I mean with more and more people now buying and selling?

Doubtful. Even all the headlines about Robinhood moving the market is doubtful. Institutional money is just way too big.

Forget SoftBank, maybe T212 was the ‘Nasdaq whale’ :thinking: :laughing:

Trading 212 recently surpassed £1B in client assets. If everyone bought into the S&P 500, we’d own 0.00435% of it. If that helps out it into perspective

This year only the Fed and Covid-19 have made a difference to the stock market… Oh and Trump :sweat_smile:

T212 and similar websites have made a difference to ordinary folks like me who were tired of being robbed blind by the incumbent investment platforms. It has also democratised investing, which in my book is awesome! Since I opened my T212 account a little over a year ago I think I have gone from zero to 90% Pro :slight_smile: and now I have all the tools I need to win!

I’ll be honest, I’m 72 now and I always wanted to perhaps have a few shares in a company.
Whenever I looked in to it I was baffled, it looked too complicated, didn’t understand what everything meant, there was no internet then to look for information so I let it go.

I happened to stumble on to T212 by chance and at last something that made it more understandable and easy so here I am.
I’m still learning but I’m finding it interesting and also kind of fun as well.

@cavanhagan, which S&P 500 is it, I have a few in my portfolio?

Showing my ignorance now but I am trying to learn lol.

No, not an ETF. The market cap of all the companies in the S&P 500 combined. Adds up to $23T forgot to do the currency conversion in my calculation whoops, so we’d actually own a little more than that. But we’d only really have a bit of an impact if the majority of us sold at once

Please don’t share publicly my portfolio value.
