I know this probably has been commented on elsewhere but i’m posting this anyway!
It’s pretty basic functionality to offer the user a bid/ask price and give the user a short period of time to confirm the offer. I’ve had a couple of situations where I have been quoted a price on FT and then the actual purchase price was about 5% higher. I wouldn’t have accepted that spread given the choice and it screwed up my DCA on a couple of holdings.
I understand about the spread. I understand that FT finds the mid point and secures the best price at any given moment.
Ultimately the user should have the final decision over whether the “best price” is good enough!
How are you suppose to trade properly if you don’t have transparency or control over the price you’re paying?!
This is such obvious fundamental functionality, i’m surprised i’m even having to write this.
Please consider, it would enormously improve the FT UX!
