@Supraman i believe one of the links said the spread was fixed/floating via a percentage, and seems to be activated when prices rapidly increase/decrease/volume etc. i recall reading somewhere on the forum via staff that ISA spreads (possibly Invest too) couldn’t be tampered with as it’s illegal, please forgive me if i’m wrong. It would be ideal to see the mark-up difference prior to buying/selling, i believe @pipo also suggested the same a couple of months back.
@Brissles1 I believe the spread has been addressed formally due to the post, and there’s been an update on the website 6 days ago https://helpcentre.trading212.com/hc/en-us/articles/360008614817-What-is-spread-and-how-it-works-
I still don’t understand how spreads becomes so large (possibly floating?), Zoom is a perfect example with a $55 spread despite the buy/sell price.
I requested details on the future plans for the CFD platform from staff, as the current model didn’t appear to want to maintain customers. As @pipo explained, it would make sense if it was a beginners CFD experience, then move elsewhere, as i yet to hear from a professional which would use a free trading platform long term, as all have said spreads/execution/limited stocks cost them more than fees.
I also read by a Leader that T212 have plans to charge fees on the CFD platform to reduce spreads… but i haven’t read this from a staff member.
One thing for sure is the Forum needs to be changed to allow important staff information to be pinned/have a dedicated section which users can divert people to, and save T212 staff from repeating information, as the replies on post can go in the 100’s so it’s hard to find information if you’re not on the website daily.
