Hi, so I'm just wondering, on shares, some have a buy price of say 1967 while a sell price of 1965, is this how much each share costs, or is this number representative of something else?

Hi, if you are looking at the buy/sell box then the difference between the 2 prices is the spread, the cost of the trade.

I just have a regular share trading account. I saw this mainly on the demo account I am using. 
 

US stocks are in $, UK stocks are in pence. If it's on demo it must be either a spread bet or cfd account as there is no share dealing demo, SB or CFD it could either be dollars or pence or IG points.

Okay, but it doesn't have a $ sign there, just numbers, do the numbers represent the price? For instance Tesla is way higher than the other ones.

that's why I asked about which type of account. They are all based on the underlying market where Tesla are around $705.50 cents.

IG has them listed as points so on the SB platform they are 70550.0

While on the cfd platform they are  705.5000

not sure what the share dealing platform has.

The demo. For instance, in cryptocurrency, Crypto 10 Index is 14460.02 for selling and a bit higher for buying. What does that mean?

    • The new month kicked off with several stock market indices hitting record highs on Thursday. Japan's Nikkei Average, the S&P 500, and the Nasdaq all closed at fresh record peaks. The gains were buoyed by tech stocks like NVIDIA and Advanced Micro Devices. Stock markets are in an upbeat mood after US inflation figures came in line with expectations on Thursday. This helped shape forecasts for the timing of future Fed interest rate cuts. It extended the ongoing global equity rally and also pushed Treasury yields lower. The DAX also reached a new all-time high on Thursday. Europe opens today waiting for inflation data that should indicate inflation is moving back toward the 2% target. This comes after data showed inflation dropping in countries like Germany, France and Spain thanks to lower energy and food prices. The ECB has maintained record-high interest rates since September. Also on the calendar today is the US ISM manufacturing PMI.   
    • Cocoa Elliott Wave Analysis - 1 March 24 Function - Trend Mode - Impulsive Structure - Impulse Wave Position - Blue wave ‘iv’ unfolds Direction - Blue wave ‘iv’ in progress Cocoa has been a standout performer in the commodity market over the past two years, exhibiting a robust upward trend since September 2022. During this period, Cocoa prices have surged by an impressive 170%, following a discernible impulse wave pattern. Examining the daily chart, it is evident that the current rally, which commenced around the 2200 mark, is approaching its final stages. The completion of black wave 5 marked the conclusion of blue sub-wave iii at 6500. The recent downward movement indicates the emergence of blue sub-wave iv. Based on projections, blue sub-wave iv of 5 is anticipated to progress towards the significant level of 8000. A closer inspection of the sub-waves within blue wave iv reveals a potential three-wave decline, as depicted on the H4 chart. This decline from 6500 is forecasted to retrace towards the Fibonacci levels of 5489-5174. Additionally, the critical trading level of 5000 serves as another pivotal area to monitor for potential support should the ongoing dip breach the aforementioned Fibonacci zone. However, it's essential to note that the development of the wave 5 impulse pattern would be invalidated if prices were to fall below 4354. In summary, adopting a strategy of buying into the dip appears to be the most prudent approach for traders interested in Cocoa. The focus will be on purchasing opportunities towards the end of blue wave iv of 5, particularly if there's a bullish reaction observed at the identified price support levels. This analysis underscores the potential opportunities within Cocoa's current price movement and provides a framework for traders to navigate the market effectively. By incorporating Elliott Wave principles, traders can better understand the underlying market dynamics and make informed decisions to capitalize on future price movements in Cocoa.
