No facility for placing stop loss sell orderss

I am a moderate investor (£3-5k) and enjoy playing the market. I joined Sharepeople.com mid 2000 and have had no real problems with the account. As I put aside a set amount each month to invest I have set up a direct transfer to the Sharepeople.com bank account. This is by far the easiest way of...

“Share dealing made easy”

published 22/11/2000

Easy to use, informative, easy trading

None

I decided a while ago that it would be fun to dabble in the stockmarket so I took a look around and decided to try Sharepeople out. Setting up my account with them was easy and took only a few days (it is not all done online). Once my account was opened and money paid into the bank account which...

Slow website.

I joined Sharepeople after seeing various adverts and I am very impressed with their service. I used to trade using my bank who would charge either £20 or 2% whichever is higher. Well Sharepeople charged £17.50 for a trade (no matter the value of shares bought). What's more this charge has been...

Need money in account to sell

I signed up with Sharepeople in May. When I signed, there was an offer of not having to pay £50 admin per quarter/year. I have bought some shares a couple of times and there has not been any problems. Recently I tried to sell a stock, and to my surprise I was unable to. Reason - quite simple, I...

Instant trading, cheap to use, reliable

Slightly clunky website

I've been trading with sharepeople.com for several months now and I can recommend their service. However, users should be aware that virginmoney.com actually links to sharepeople.com but only charges £14.95 per trade, as opposed to £17.95 a trade by sharepeople.com. Trading is executed...

“Basic and easy to use”

nominee service cost efficiency

Lack of services clumsy looking website

Sharepeople is the third online broker I've used and at present seems to be very efficient and cost effective. I first used barclays stockbrokers which has to be one of the cheapest but also probably the worst with certificates going astray and T10 settlement being too long. Their price improver...

Since being taken over by American Express they have allowed you to transfer money electronically (via direct debit). This has reduced the time taken to get funds into the account, though it is still a manual transact, you need to move the money over 3 working days before. It would be better if...
