Does any one use Revolut for trading https://www.revolut.com/de-DE/legal/trading ?
I just got an email from them that they now offer trading on standard accounts and the terms looks quite nice.
I have couple of questions:
1. They are UK based company. Is there any tax implication I need to consider? I heard that if you open trading account with German vendors like DB you don't need to do any additional paperwork for tax purpose.
If I buy stocks from the revolut app, I think there would be some way to get a PDF details of purchase/sale and send it to Tax Consultant
2. Right now they say that I can buy stocks in US market. Not sure what do I need to buy stocks from DAX?
Revolut looks good and easy to use as I can just get started from there app and its in English. Last week I opened another account in Consors bank but it involves too much of paper work. I had some query and I wrote an email to them and they replied back asking me to write in German.
This is what I got from Revolut and looks quite promising:
Last month, we made stock trading available to our Metal customers, enabling them to buy and sell U.S. stocks directly from the Revolut app. The launch of our trading feature was a success, and now we’re excited to offer it to our Standard customers as well.
You now have access to trading
As a Standard customer, you’ll be able to make 3 commission-free trades per month. Any trades thereafter will be charged at 1 EUR per trade. We’ll also charge a 0.01% annual custody fee, based on the value of your portfolio.
How trading works
Often, investors are required to buy a minimum of one share in a company. That’s not a problem if the cost of a single share is low, but shares in many popular companies, such as Amazon, can be a thousand dollars each, or more. With fractional shares, you can buy a fraction of a single share for as little as $1, which means you’ll still own a piece of the company, albeit a much smaller one.
Instant market orders
Market orders allow you to buy or sell a share, or a fractional share, at its current market value. For example, if the cost of a single share in General Mills is $1.50 (hypothetically), when your order arrives at the market, you’ll usually pay $1.50 for that share.
Want more commission-free trades?
If you’d like to increase the number of commission-free trades you can make each month from 3 to 8, consider upgrading your plan to Premium. Upgrade to Metal, and you’ll get unlimited commission-free trades per month.
