Annoying £ to $ manual conversion when purchasing US shares.

Recommended Posts

My balance is in £ yet when i am setting up an order to purchase US shares i have to work out what the conversion rate is in USD. Its a pain in the **** as i have to then do a manual calculation from £ to $.

For example Hargreaves and Lansdown will calculate the USD equivelant in the background. So if I'm purchasing US shares and i want to spend £3000 i simply just type out £3000.

Hi Superpositron,


We really appreciate the feedback, especially in light of creating our New Web Trading Platform. It would be a useful tool to be able to specify a GBP amount and have an indicative conversion to USD for US stocks.


It would be interesting to see what everyone else thinks and whether they have any similar feedback!
