As a relatively new trader (two years) I have found the whole Trading 212 experience to be quite positive over the past two weeks with just a few minor grievances.
I recently purchased a one month subscription of Scanz specifically for their excellent live news feed; I would estimate ninety percent of CFC stocks I’ve searched with positive news are not available on Trading 212! This basically makes the Scanz news feed redundant.
The solution (I’m guessing) would be to use a DMA broker?
Another annoying small issue is the desktop platform insists of defaulting to the light theme every time I sign out! I’m guessing that’s probably an issue with my Firefox browser cookies.
You’ve probably heard the saying that it pays to shop around. All brokers have their own perks, and some sit behind a paywall. You might not find any that meet your exact needs, without having to pay higher fees as a result.
Everyone you’ll find on this forum has different needs, and I don’t think there is a one size fits all.
I haven’t found any hidden fees so far. The rest of the fees that are not so hidden are very acceptable.
Stocks / ETF
A lot of stocks and ETFs available.
What’s more important though… is the fact that T212 adds stocks and ETFs /if eligable/ upon request, so if i itch to buy something specific which i can’t find with other brokers they add them!
well… none of that… but probably for the best
would still love to gamble with some options whenever i feel like trading for a downfall though.
CFDs are availble if you want to short something… but i prefer options.
