I keep reading the same type of posts about users getting screwed.
If a number of people complain about the same thing, there is a problem. I agree with them. I think there is a problem.
FT is not marketing to serious investors, its the young retail crowd. In many cases they don’t have experience, so it is up to FT to hold their hands. To make it very clean on execution that the prices are 15 minutes out of date, that the last price was a last trade price not a price they can deal on.
If they are buying, then show indications on the offer, not mid or last.
FT doesn’t give an indication of bid and ask. This is very poor . Esp as some retail chase penny stocks where bid/offer could be 10%. They need to know this as part of their investment decision. FT is failing them.
Please sort this out before the regulator does it for you.
