Instant buy / sell shares feature


Recommended Posts

Hi. I’ve recently moved from another trading app and already invested this week. One thing I didn’t like was I had to input the number of stock to buy + set a specific price to buy. By the time I did that, the stock price had altered and it said, not sufficient amount. So I had to readjust it. This is very inefficient especially if you need to quickly buy or sell.
Instead you should have like the ability to input the amount in money you want to buy or sell and let the system buy at the current price and work out the number of shares. Also this goes for how many shares you want to buy and the system will work out how much it will cost on the fly. When you see a good deal, you want to enter ASAP and not have to fiddle around with input fields. Is this something that exists as I couldn’t find it. 

I’ve taken some screenshots from the other app I used which let’s you do that. 

thanks

Not sure which app you use, but on my iPad I get the option to buy a quantity of shares or invest a specific amount.  Also on my laptop the first option is for a number of shares but there is a dropdown box enables me to change to an amount of money to invest. Like you I always invest a specific amount including commission etc.

To this end, I had a conversation with @CharlotteIG about this recently (last couple of weeks) suggesting that the system is changed around so that investment amount is shown first and number of shares second, as most private investors do no invest in round lots,  and she promised to take this back to the team for consideration but not heard anything further yet.
