OK, OK, I know buying odd-shares in companies on the basis that you have a couple of quid left in your account isn’t much of an investment strategy…
But let’s say, purely hypothetically, that I bought a share in 888.com, because it was cheap and I wanted to put the dregs of my account to work. Now let’s say that I want rid of this share because it’s hopeless and is only just about wiping its feet.
Recent rule changes, imposed at Freetrade, mean if that share (or the total sum of any particular holding) is worth less than £2, you’re stuck with it… Unless you buy another couple of quids worth first.
I understand why the rule was changed, and why they might not want you to buy less than a certain amount - but surely you’d think they’d let you offload what you have?
