We’re Now At 300,000

300subs

Three hundred thousand.

What is that? 300,000 of you have now chosen to subscribe to our YouTube channel, which means that we’re now roughly the size of Kingston. Or that we could fill the Olympic Stadium in London about 5 times, or more than 720 Boeing 747 planes.. it’s clear where we’re headed.

Ever since we uploaded our first video five years ago, our goal has remained the same – to provide quality content, that can help both experienced, as well as beginner traders. Are you starting just now, and still learning about the different types of graphics and instruments? Or perhaps you’ve been trading for the past few years? There is a video for you, that can help you grow and hone your skills.

Our YouTube community has now become a great place, where you can find other like-minded individuals and have an open discussion on the newest trends in the stock market, or simply ask a question and have it answered by us right then and there.

We’re thankful for all 300,000 of you, who have joined us over the past five years and would like to welcome all of you, who are yet to do that. Here’s to the next five.

In what was a dynamic year for the financial world, with cryptocurrencies forming an entirely new asset class, we managed to not only adapt to user demands but also anticipate their needs.

The #TradingRevolution and #FreeStockTrading in the Media

Media coverage of #TradingRevolution

As we continue rolling out our zero commission stock trading service, we’ve attracted the attention of leading media from London and the City.

Here’s what the they’re saying about our trading revolution and bringing down the barriers to stock investing.

The Telegraph:

“A new entrant to mainstream share dealing is driving trading costs down to a new low – in fact, to zero.”

Independent:

“Online trading startup Trading 212 is hoping it can provide the next stock market revolution.”

Forbes:

“There’s no doubt that the commissions charged by the large brokers in the UK are significantly more expensive than those from Trading 212.”

City A.M.:

“Brokers beware: The UK’s first ever no-commission share trading service launches today.”

proactiveinvestors:

“New share trading platform launches with zero commission deals.”

banking technology:

“Brokers are jokers with Trading 212 zero commission service.”

 

We are proud that our service has been recognised for exactly what it is – a new way for everyone to invest in UK and global companies. The plaudits and praise across the financial community speak for themselves.

Stay tuned, there’s more to come!

£0 Commission Stock Trading is Here!

0 commission stock trading

We are proud to announce that Trading 212 is the first and only broker in the UK and Europe that offers stock trading with no commission!

For the first ten trades you make every month there will be no commission and for the ones after that there will be a fee of £1.95 +0.05%!

This is nothing short of a trading revolution – we are enabling millions of people to trade and invest in real equity with the best possible execution, directly on the stock exchanges without paying any commission. And all this is possible with a beautiful and easy to use mobile and web app.

Here’s how things stand right now when it comes to fees:

As you can see investing in real stocks can be pretty expensive. This has been acting as a glass ceiling for a great many individual traders and investors from becoming shareholders and benefiting from the progress of companies. Profits from rising stocks and dividends paid out by successful companies have been reserved for a chosen few. But we’ve been hard at work to find ways to cut costs and democratise trading. And we’ve done it!

This rate is now active for over 1500 equities in the UK, U.S. and Germany. You will see these clearly marked in the platform with an “EQ” label, so that they can be distinguished from contracts for difference that now have a CFD label. (We’d like to note that the same company can be both an equity and CFD on our platform.)

Trading 212 platform stock trading no commission

So now you can invest directly in companies from all sectors. Carmakers like Tesla and BMW, banks like Lloyds and Deutsche Bank, tech giants Amazon, Facebook, Google and Apple can all be traded in Trading 212.

There’s more.

  • Your orders are executed directly on the London Stock Exchange, New York Stock Exchange, NASDAQ and Deutsche Boerse
  • There is no rerouting, execution is super-fast and we don’t sell your order flow
  • No margin or leverage requirements
  • No fees for holding positions overnight

Trading 212 Takes Center Stage at One of the Largest Financial Fairs in Germany

Tradefair Germany Frankfurt

Tradefair Germany Frankfurt

Showcasing our platform’s capabilities to German traders in Frankfurt

Trading 212 took part in one of the most prestigious gatherings of technology and financial companies in Europe. We wanted to demonstrate the Trading 212 PRO platform live and on the spot to anyone interested in forex, commodities, stocks and indexes.

Some of our colleagues were on hand to demonstrate both basic and more advanced functions to visitors who had different levels of knowledge about trading and the global markets. We met beginners and more experienced visitors from a wide range of professional backgrounds.

Some of them were looking to diversify their investment portfolios, others were more interested in trying their hand at day trading so that they can react to the constantly changing financial environment. One of the frequent themes at the fair was “alternative investment opportunities” and with our extensive list of trading instruments, recently enriched by the presence of ETF’s and Chinese currency pairs, we were able to capture their attention.

Carsten Umland, one of the most respectable names in the German trading scene, partnered up with us to answer some more detailed questions about the life of a full-time trader and how someone who has limited time can take advantage of trading through advanced mobile apps without the need to devote excessive time for it.

As one of the main sponsors of the event we also had one little surprise for our guests – the Lamborghini Aventador at our stand, a nod to the design that inspires and drives us forward. Оur visitors took part in a lottery and two of them wоn a Lamborghini driving experience.
