Units of prices shown : Pence for UK and Dollars for US shares


Recommended Posts

My first day as a member and I was getting familiar with the new platform the data,multiple features and the layout

One of my main concerns was the UK prices are shown in pence (& possibly also EU market), but US prices are shown in Dollars (& not pence) and 

the whole lot is shown on one pane and without Units of the currency..which I thought needed to be improved

Hey, 

Thanks for your post. 

The reason UK stocks are quoted in pence is because that's how they're quoted in the underlying market. Whereas, US shares are quoted in dollars.

It's something we do to keep in line with how the underlying market works however I can pass on your feedback to see if there's a way we can explain that on the platform for traders

Thanks again for the feedback 

Charlotte

    • Why is this stock unavailable to open for non-Pro clients? Surely a fund is less risky than an individual stock.
    • Hi @Kgrp74 Thank you for reaching out.  HMRC rules don't allow you to hold foreign currency in an ISA, but you can still buy international shares. The gains on currency conversions are only seen and credited in the account once you sell the shares if the currency rate is favorable to you. We also have to consider the 0.5% spread added to the exchange rate and commission charges which would normally offset your profits.  Thanks, OfentseIG
