How to challenge anomalous spread on an ETF?


Recommended Posts

 

An ETF instrument I use currently shows a 0.6% spread, approximately 6 times the usual spread on an ETF. What is more, the inverse fund corresponding to it currently shows a 0.1% spread as one would expect, leading me to believe the spread is in error. This is not a temporary glitch - the spread has been about the same for a month. This is in a spread betting account, by the way.

Can anyone suggest how I might "appeal" the spread? Obviously IG can charge whatever spread they wish to - but in this case it does look like it might be an error on their part.

Many thanks

Same thing here - today SLVP.P ishares MSCI silver miners ETF was showing a $0.40 spread on a ~16.60 mid price. - that's almost 2.5%!! Which is a bit ridiculous.

Global X silver miners ETF was showing  ~0.4% spread which looks more reasonable?

Can someone from IG look into this?

SLVP.P was showing an ~8% bid offer spread today which is mind-boggling, given that SIL.P at the same time had a spread of 0.8%. I only noticed as well as the inflated spread caused my position to show an unexpected loss.

I asked IG help on chat if there was a mistake and they said no. 

Only thing to do I guess is to follow the complaints procedure:

    • This is why I think using volatility as an important input is a much better way..... It's not about predicting the markets, it's about proactively preparing for what maybe around the corner. Follow me on twitter for more updates. Took me all night to model that price action and it paid off “ biggly”.    Take care out there  CA  
    • A higher than normal spread generally indicates one of two things, high volatility in the market or low liquidity due to out-of-hours trading. Before news events, or during big shock (Brexit, US Elections), spreads can widen greatly. A low spread means there is a small difference between the bid and the ask price. From google
    • I don't think it would be a problem trading during the weekend. You can trade whenever you want.  I learned how to do it on the cryptoinformator website. The highest income is brought by bitcoin. When looking at the value of the current 55,000 dollars, of course, everyone is thinking about investing in it. Forecasts vary, and many believe that by the end of 2021, they would have surpassed 100,000 dollars. The growth is projected to be based on the fact that real-world payment flow stock markets are still burdened by the current pandemic but is also based on the increasing acceptance of BTC as legal tender ( PayPal is bringing this option, and bitcoin is also coming to Wall Street soon).
