News · 23 December 2019Elizabeth McGrath

The holiday season is almost upon us, but Revolut Trading isn’t slowing down. You know we’re all about constant improvement so that you can get more out of your experience with us, every time you open the app.

Since we launched our Trading platform just a few months ago, our team has been working tirelessly on building the latest features; we’re delighted to say they’re now ready to go. We’ve bagged up all these updates into one festive blog post, so read on to discover why over 100,000 people are now trading with Revolut. Happy holidays!

To infinity and beyond 🚀

We’ve added 350+ new stocks,taking the number of U.S. listed stocks to over 800! Many of these companies are global household names, and you can get in on the action with fractional shares from as little as $1. From Amazon to Apple, Netflix to Nike, Peloton to PepsiCo, these are companies many of you already know and love. Some of the new additions are truly out of this world, including Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic Holdings(SPCE) - so the sky is no longer the limit!

Eyes on the prize 👀

Our new Watchlist feature means you can easily keep track of all your favourites in one place and see real-time prices. You can also set Price Alerts on the companies you’re interested in, so you can buy when it’s right for you. Dividend Notifications will also now be sent to any relevant customers, because we like to keep everyone up to date!

Introducing News Stories 💬

We’re delighted to announce that News Stories are being added for Premium and Metal customers, so you can make informed investing decisions. Expect breaking news from internationally renowned sources, from Bloomberg to Business Insider to the BBC. To find the latest news go to ‘Invest’ and tap on the company you’re interested in; relevant news will be there. Read all about it.

A little recap 📚

If you’re not already set up to trade with Revolut, it’s easy to get started. You’ll need to complete a few additional steps before you can get going - you might need to have your local tax ID handy. Once the red tape is dealt with, you can start trading! Here’s how to get going:

  • Go to the Dashboard and expand ‘Trading’ by pressing the icon
  • Hit ‘Show more’ to enter the platform
  • Tap ‘Fund’ to instantly add U.S. dollars to your Trading account (from your personal account). Start from just $1!
  • Tap ‘Invest’  to see a full stock list with real-time share performance data
  • Remember you can only trade during U.S. market hours (9.30am to 4pm Eastern Time)
  • Tap on the company you’re interested in. Tap ‘Buy’ if you wish to purchase shares, or ‘Sell’ if you want to offload any
  • Put your feet up and feel awesome. You just became a Trader!

And remember, if you’re making more than 3 trades a month, it’s worth upgrading to either our Premium plan, which offers 8 free trades per month, or our Metal plan for unlimited commission-free trading.

One last thing: we might have our slippers on over New Year, but we won’t be resting too much. Get ready for Out of Hours orders and push notifications about high impact news events…. Coming soon!
