Is the price on freetrade a guide price? As I bought shares today at 9.86, but they were executed at 9.90! But the share price remained and finished day at 9.86,
It is the average of the market transactions rather than a price at which you can transact. Therefore, based upon availability of the shares and number of available buyers/sellers the price you actually buy/sell at will be around the price but not exactly at it.
Ok thanks, never has such a big difference before
Out of curiosity what was the share?
So if I wanted to sell, I would have to sell with a big raise to make sure I made a profit,
So, whatever anyone tells you there is a buy/sell spread inherent in share trading no matter who you use as a broker. This spread will normally be between 0.5% to 1% for the majority of shares. It will be less for the most highly traded shares (i.e. Apple). For Monks Trust your difference was roughly 0.5% which I would say is okay. Really you need to be up about 1% ish to ensure you make back all your money.
It may of been executed at that time,
Thanks for the help Henry
If you click on the share on your activity page you’ll get the contract note. The execution time will be in the top right corner.
It says 3.19 pm
Maybe my purchase bumped the price up lol
That’s more or less spot on
That’s the exact price on my contract note
Where is that graph from
Looks like the Freetrade graph is wrong then.
@Viktor - is this a known issue?
I just searched the ticker share price.
