Spread on Provident Financial PLC DFB is wrong


Recommended Posts

The spread on Provident Financial PLC DFB is wrong and has been for two days.


It is still a FTSE100 share and so the spread should be 0.001 not 0.0025.


The share is due for relegation to FTSE250 Monday 18th September so the spread should be increased then and not now.  It has been done too early.


Note Royal Mail is also being relegated then but the spread is currently correct at 0.001


Please fix asap.


Thank you in advance.

Hi thanks for this message. I've just double checked Providence Financial (PFG) and it does look like it has the 0.1% spread on the DFB (as per below with a DMA and Spread Bet Input ticket 789.5 x 1.001 = 790.2896).


I can see that Providence Resources however has the 0.25% which may have been what you are looking at?

Thanks  for coming to the Community to get this sorted, and glad we could get the issue resolved.


We try and deal with all issues as quickly as possible, however for some time sensitive questions (for example if you were looking to deal on Provident as soon as possible) it's always worth noting we have a 24 hour phone line during the dealing week. All the best.

    • In this week’s Trading the Trend, Axel Rudolph FSTA looks at the downward trend of the German DAX, going short on the bounce to 12,300, with a stop-loss at 12,940 and a long-term downside target of 11,500. ig        
    • BRITISH POUND TALKING POINTS: GBP/USD was in a difficult spot earlier in September and the problem has continued to devolve. It’s a negative feedback type situation around the UK and the British Pound with a collapsing currency leading to surging bond yields which led to a BoE intervention effort that’s led to more currency collapse. It’s a painful feedback loop that hasn’t yet stopped. Is there hope on the horizon? And is this a problem that will be relegated to the UK, as it has similar hues to problems being seen in Europe and the United States. The current backdrop is messy as bonds and FX are screaming panic and meanwhile, US equities look relatively calm. I discussed this at-length in yesterday’s webinar. The British Pound collapsed last week, or so we thought, only to open our platforms this week to see what a collapse in a major currency actually looked like. GBP/USD has set a fresh all-time-low and perhaps more disturbingly, in the days since, price hasn’t really rebounded much. Sellers are still hitting the pair and now there’s other dislocations that are taking place.   The UK is faced with a similar problem as Europe and the US with extreme inflation. All three Central Banks were rather calm as inflation built through much of last year but this year, as inflation continued to run-higher even after initial tightening efforts, worry started to show given that central bank efforts were not only unsuccessful but also appearing to bring on even more problems.
