Ah - so there is a monthly charge?
Only for the "Plus" version. The normal platform is free. However, it is slow to react to prices and the ordinary version does not have anything like the number of shares listed on the "Plus" version.
For the amateur/hobby trader it is fine. If you are, as you say, trading within a group at larger quantities then it would not be suitable.

It's something I have often thought I would like to get into, but a) I don't know enough about it all and b) I don't really have much spare cash to invest, so probably not ideal lol. If you have made any money so far would you say the amount you have made is worth it versus the effort and money you have had to put in?

Like any kind of gambling, and that is what this is, in essence, you can lose. However, with a little bit of patience and research, it is possible to make some more "informed" investments and even make a profit. Like any form of gambling, don't gamble what you cannot afford to lose.
The Freetrade platform is designed with the lower level of investor. It's a simple app to use, it's regulated by the financial norms and while not the most technically advanced, it does do what it says it will. There are a few of us on here who have accounts and as you can read, some of us have made a few quid. (we've all lost a few too but I think most of us are keeping our heads above water!)

If you want to have a go, it's free and if you do invest using the link below, both of us will get a free share.

@Wallop & @McVicar you can also get a free share on Trading212: www.trading212.com/invite/Fz6b8rM1 and we both get a free share!

2 free shares!
I'm not sure one free share is enough to move me to a new account unless you get to choose - if so, I'll have this one!

Do they just allocate you a random share? Which one did you get and what was it's value?

Berkshire Hathaway Inc Class A USD5 (BRK.A)

Sell: 354,000.00Buy:354,340.00

Trade low: 354,000.00

Hey

You don't need to move away, you could sell the share straight away and take the extra cash. I have got about 3-4 over the years, ranging from £1-£5.

Its between £3-£200 now, so the Berkshire H share wont apply :p

I have been using Freeshare for some relatively straightforward ISA stuff and Fineco Bank for a GIA. Fineco aren’t the quickest to do anything but it’s a good platform and the prices aren’t bad at all.

Some good names in there. There have been some outstanding names across the Asian Indices over the last 14 months. Also, some dont realise how the influence of Chinese and SEA money has impacted the markets during Covid
