FTSE 100 price is different in the Freetrade app vs Yahoo Finance

Why is ftse 100 up on yahoo finance but down on Freetrade?

What do you mean it is down on Freetrade? can you clarify?

It is down .17 on Freetrade graph but up .13 on yahoo finance

Freetrade doesn’t have the market data so I’m not sure what you mean - are you referring to an ETF?

If so then its likely just a time delay on pricing. Yahoo is 15 minutes delayed, I don’t think that Freetrade disclose their delay

I think what you are seeing is a FTSE tracking etf is down ~0.01% while the actual FTSE is up 0.02% (according to hargreaves lansdown). It’s a slight tracking issue with the ETF

Ah ok, thanks, I’m still new to this

ETF’s don’t always track the instrument they are supposed to track exactly. The ETF itself can be driven by supply and demand as it is traded on the exchange. sometime an ETF will have a value that is slightly different from its NAV (Net asset value) which is basically the value of it’s holdings

My Vanguard s&p shares show a gain 0.42% on the Freetrade app and the same etf on yahoo finance shows 0.77% gain. They’re the same etf ?

Is the price the same?

Nope 42.84 on the app 42.99 yahoo finance ?

The last update on the app was 16.27. Looking on yahoo finance the jump gain occurred just after this. This .42 -.77% gain.

My whole portfolio price is different on yahoo finance than Freetrade even though I update regularly after every new investment.

All I would say is check you share titles carefully to make sure you have them right. Mine was out and I only realised the other day it was my FTSE 100 ETF. I had the actual FTSE index chosen in yahoo lol. My portfolio balance is spot on now in yahoo.
