Finding a market symbol/code in the new platform.

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

The new platform seems missing the Market Information tab in the old platform. Where can I find a market symbol/code in the new platform? Example, the code name for Singapore Index is SGI.

 

Thank you very much.

At the top of the left side bar you will see the word "Search".  Click on that and type it in there.

No, it just shows the full name, for example, Singapore Index, not SGI.

What I mean is I know the full name, such as Bitcoin USD, where can I find the symbol name of it (BTCUSD)?

Thank you.

If you right click on any market in your watchlist you can see the 'Market Data' button (as below).

Hi,

Yes, I could find the market data, but it doesn't have the code name of a stock.

Hi - going to the above location will provide the stock tickers in the top tab (as highlighted below). You can see an example of this with Lloyds Banking and Tesco (LLOY and TSCO both on the LSE). Although I appreciate it isn't ideal, this is a bit of a work around. Alternatively you would have to use this web page PDF under the 'Find a Share' header, or a 3rd party service.

Hi,

The tab seems inconvenient but the website is useful. Thank you.
