Code and name are wrong on IG and PRT for Standard Life Aberdeen PLC on DFB

Recommended Posts

The code and name for Standard Life Aberdeen PLC are both wrong on the IG platform and PRT on DFB.

 

The name is showing as Standard Life PLC and the code SL.

 

The correct data is Standard Life Aberdeen PLC with code SLA as the company merged last week.

 

Please fix asap hopefully within 24 hours....especially PRT which often seems slow to have errors fixed.

 

Thank you in advance

Hi  - some areas on the IG offering (such as PRT and the new web trading platform) will take up to 24 hours to pull through the display data on a daily sweep. Please rest assured that this change has been made and is purely a display aspect on the asset name. For this reason it wouldn't effect the functionality, back end system, pricing or dealing aspect for any accounts. 

 

Thanks

James

24 hours later and PRT is still wrong.

 

A similar error existed on PRT a couple of weeks ago.  It took 6 phone calls and 2 weeks for the error to be fixed.

 

Hopefully this one will be fixed much sooner.

 

Thank you for your assistance.

James thank you for your assistance.

 

The correct company name now appears on PRT i.e. Standard Life Aberdeen PLC but the code is still wrong as it shows SL instead of SLA.

 

Hopefully this can be fixed shortly.

Hi  Apologies about the kerfuffle on this. We made the appropriate changed on our side when you first brought this to our attention, however it seems like this hasn't pulled through to the full PRT offering. This hasn't been an issue on a couple of other stocks we've changed recently, so we are just trying to isolate why this has happened here. 

 

We have raised a ticket with IT Finance, the company who own Pro Real Time, and I shall get back to you as soon as I have an answer.

    • Financial Anarchy: one of the main fallacies of Bitcoin. You are that independent holding bitcoin that anytime you want to buy it or sell it have to go through an exchange using your full identity. With all sort of passports and ids checks. Let's not forget that the main goal of many bitcoiners is to amass as much of the correlated fiat currency as possible. With the romantic topic of becoming a blade runner paying in SHA-256 hashes to other elite individuals you watch how your virtual coins grow in value, that value that is established in that so-hated fiat currency. The happiness of a bitcoiner comes with the grow in price of that coin in the exchange. The more coins of the fiat currency they get from their bitcoins the happier they are. So it is all cyberpunk literature with a bit of TAZ philosophy, but bitcoin is no more than a very volatile "financial product", unfortunately , and since I am surrounded in IT departments by bitcoiners I am so tired of listening to people excusing themselves for choosing this overhyped movement over any other FX pair or metal. I understand that people want to get rich quickly and that is why they chose bitcoin, but they want to get rich by grabbing more and more of that fiat currency that they hold in the bank accounts. So let's be honest with ourselves, let's cut the rubbish and call it like it is: Greed on a very volatile market.  
    • The Fed wants to ban it or tax it. No central government likes crypto as its a form of financial anarchy. 
    • Very good point, Casey. They see Bitcoin and want to emulate it, or in the case of the Fed try and ban it. Bitcoin and Crypto have DEMAND. A Euro backed or $ backed crypto may not have them same demand, but will also be seen as currency. Crypto's lack of provenance (political and geographic) is a major USP. The market normally wins as governments know too well.
