DIY Share Trading...

AdvantagesSimple, informative, reliable...

DisadvantagesUK trading only, tips but no tips analysis...

" online stock broker. SelfTrade is part of the DAB group and allows you to buy any quantity of a share for £12.50, sell any quantity of a share for £12.50 and to trade through ISAs.
