Any one wanting to see ‘live’ LSE prices should head to
(*not actually ‘live’ as would break all manner of laws!)
and change the ticker accordingly.
No API key required for “testing”
The returned Bid/Ask attempts to factor in the historical “price improvement” RSPs will give subject to time of day, liquidity, turnover etc…
It’s 91.52% (^) accurate and is really meant to be a guide.
(^ that’s made up!)
If you look at official market spreads… then look at this… then execute a trade… you’ll see (hopefully) this API was a much better indication of what you actually executed at!
Works best with wide spread, low liquidity stocks (GGP, VCP etc…)
Best of luck!
2 character Tickers… ie. HL or BP
SETSqx during auctions…will return a price…but not the uncrossing price… (yet!)
Thank you…all those that are testing… valuable info found…
No, you can’t throw Nasdaq tickers at it! It’s for the LSE only
(I can see you trying!)
Yes, VOD is a little slow… it’s because of the depth of historical data that the alogrithm looks at…
Slow, but works… (most the time!!!)
It won’t work for FCEL, AAPL, MSFT etc… only LSE stocks…
(I’m watching you )
