Let’s be honest we all in this boat together and we could help each other whether you are an investor or you work for 212 we all want to make money this whole thing is about money. We have a great platform and absolutely fantastic support with brilliant community. If 212 goes down for whatever reason then we all loose simple as that! Latest change in leverage on CBD made us worried and it got me thinking “whats next” why did they made such decision and hardly gave us time to act? If you don’t know the answer… the answer is always something to do with money…
so I believe that we should start petition or some sort of vote and pay monthly fee to 212 in exchange 212 will notify us about any changes in advance, this will keep them going and makes us happy as we won’t be worried. I suggest between £10 to £20 per month and in exchange we would like you to mention more things to us in advance as well you could invest the money in growing the platform.
Remember guys just because we spoke they listen, maybe they struggling with money so let’s help each other, this isn’t just their platform, your money is on it! so £10 or £20 a month is nothing comparing to the earnings you can make.
This money will let the grow and I’m sure more improvements and great features would also come out. You can try other apps/ platforms but you won’t find better than trading 212. I’ve been with them for long and they never let me down but lately I felt like they did struggle a little with money that’s why I believe we should act and help them out so they wouldn’t go down.
For me and a small account, a monthly fee higher than what I pay for HL would not be ideal. The reason I moved here was for the free trades on small amounts as I am a small time trader. But no other platform in the UK offers free trades or can match T212.
I would be fine with £1 trades. or some sort of bracketed fee for under £1000 (£1 fee) over £1000 (£3 fee) or something like that.
Any more than that and the platform would need a serious upgrade, premium features, premium research.
For an ISA account and fee free trading, is there another UK competitor that even comes close? Pretty Sure HL wanted to charge me £69 to buy US shares. AJ bell is at least £9 per trade and a fee for funds which is free elsewhere.
I would be willing to pay a premium if we were given a premium product such as: API integration to TradingView or Nested Pies or better charts or custom indicators (like pine script indicators in TradingView) or eToro/ProQuant Manager features where people can follow your Pies and you get 1% from their profit or any other crazy idea that would differentiate the free account from the paid premium account.
I think of it like this I’m here for a longer run so I just want be safe that Trading212 won’t go busted in future. I want them to grow I just don’t know why they’ve decided to change the leverage on CBD to 1:2 with just few hours notice, from what I understood was that they struggled with money and wanted us to loose but some people said that that even if we loose that’s not how Tradin212 make money so why did they wanted to change the leverage 1:2 on CBD? other brokers did not do this? So if the problem is with money then sure I think premium subscription would definitely help them out
