|Many thanks wdurham, for the extensive review of fastrade. I was solely with lloyds stockbrokers until 6 month ago when their service really started to fail - hard to get a human to pick up the phone promptly, when they do untrained youths/staff answering the phone, website constantly down, commission errors etc etc.
So decided to move half to idealing.com after trialing them with my isa. They are very efficient, with reasonable commission great customer service and a very good website. Only slight complaint would be the online dealing limits are sometimes more reduced and the price not quite as competetive than with lloyds. So for frequent online trading maybe not the perfect solution. That said their online limit orders are executed within minutes usually.
To cut a long story short, lloyds cost me a pretty penny on friday taking over 10 min (from the time i picked up the phone) to execute a simple, small trade and its spurred me to move the remainder of my pfolio from lloyds to a another broker. I'm a bit loath to have all of my pot with one broker (even though idealing.com state their nominee holdings are ring fenced in the event of their failure) so I think its safer to search for another competent broker.
Anyway thanks for the info regarding fastrade, they sound very good i'm just a little put off by the high telephone dealing commissions.
Yes, Fastrade is the outfit you actually trade with -
You can opt for a nominee account or a sponsored Crest account - Crest is cheaper to run, as well as putting your own name on the share register. They don't do extended settlement or anything fancy, nor do they deal on foreign exchanges. Just a straightforward UK dealing service on 3-day settlement. One advantage is that as soon as you have sold a stock, the cash is immediately available to you for further purchases - I hear some brokers insist that settlement must complete before funds are available, but don't know how accurate this is? Top ups to trading funds can be made pretty quickly via debit card.
I transferred to them from certificates, which they dematerialised for me, so have no online broker with which to compare them, but have found their service good and responsive on the rare occasion I have needed to call them. They are pretty good about notifying corporate actions, too, giving full instructions re: the action you need (or don't need!) to take. The website sometimes gets a little slow - for a frequent trader relying on being able to buy in seconds to save an eighth on the price that might be frustrating. And of course, like all brokers, you can't deal online automatically when a stock has been taken off the electronic system - though they accept - and deal fairly efficiently with - limit orders in that instance. And you can always phone them...|

I have lost faith in my current stockbroker,as I feel he is always looking after the market-makers instead of me.
I don't mind paying a bit extra commission for a decent service.|
