I’ve got an ii account and they have had free trading on US stock for 3 days. Not paying a fee for trades is what you expect with T212 but ii have the ability to hold cash in multiple currencies so being able to transfer some GBP into USD cash and then trade for free has been brilliant. T212 is extremely competitive on the fx fees so I have no issue with the fx fees in T212 but if people regularly trade US or EU stock then simply incurring those fees both sides of a trade (buy & sell) creates a significant barrier. Being able to hold cash in different currencies within an account would really enhance T212.
That’s a decent suggestion and has also been posted in other threads. We’ll definitely have it in mind, and I’ll let you know if there’re any updates.
