Stocks & ETFs requests Help

This topic has the objective to try to help the Trading 212 (T212) customers in the stocks & ETFs requests, for people who requested them but also to save some time for all other people in the T212 community, as people constantly ask for stocks and ETFs that cannot be added in Trading 212 for the same reasons.

Before asking for any stock or share, some tools to help scrutinize the potential success of getting the addition at T212:

For OTC Markets requests:

Go to the website below.:

https://www.otcmarkets.com/

  1. See in the right side of each OTC stock page if they are Penny Stock Exempt (PSE). If the stock isn’t PSE, T212 wouldn’t be able to add them:

  2. In the same OTC stock page, see if their trading volume isn’t low.

For US-domiciled financial instruments requests:

You could find out the type of US-domiciled financial instruments in this website:

For any request:

Check the availability of any stock or share at Interactive Brokers (IB) website, if they aren’t available in IB, Trading 212 wouldn’t be able to add them:
