Pre Market data

Question

Hi,

I'm using ProRealTime with my IG Spreadbetting account and am wondering if there is any chance to access Pre Market data for UK shares?

e.g. can I run a screener showing me the biggest gappers before the market actually opens?

Best

Thanks WillA

Are there any other tools or websites available which show pre-market data?

I tried to find an answer on the internet today, but it seems like nobody is providing pre-market data for the London Stock Exchange. Is this maybe not supported at all as it is common in the US stock markets?

Does anybody know if you sign-up in IG for the Level 2 data access if you get pre-market data?

(Level 2 access: provides a live price feed and extensive market depth, where applicable)

 

How do people trade gap strategies in the UK?

I know you can put your orders in pre market so you should be able to see indicative bid/offers etc. That's from 7.50 > 8am. is that what you're referring to?

Maybe better to post in the strategy section. You will prob get more/better replies.

Hi Cryptotrader,

so in the USA the brokers seem to show data during the night all the way until the market re-opens again. So you already know where the stock will open before it actually opens. Where IG stops showing any data and starts again the next morning at 8am and all you see is a big gap, but no information about per market highs and lows, etc

Is this a thing only in the US or also possible at the LSE? How do you identify an overnight gapper before the market opens in the UK?

Hi @DSchenk,  the NYSE and Nasdaq have an extended hours quote service but I don't think LSE do.

You can find them on their respective web sites and that is where brokers and commentators are getting their data from. I think the nas has pre-market and extended hours data while nyse just has extended hours data.

Yahoo Finance also lists recent out of hours trades and price movements so might be worth checking there?

    • Hi all, been up and running and watching from the side lines. Thanks for putting the list up early as I made my own list from the gap scanner from ideas but you seemed to have more plus alot of the tickers I could not trade on IG but jumped on TG Therapeutics at 973 and took some money from that. Then jumped back in at 1059 and she plummeted and my heart just sank. I managed to ride it back up to 1053 and got out with a small profit of £20. Should have put my stop in but am still learning to get out quick . I was so lucky it went back up. Thought I was going to be on a bad loss because I didn't get out early enough. I find that if you only gain a small amount each day its better that going hard at it and loosing.  Still got loads to learn. Anyway cant wait till monday.  Great content and look forward to next week. Have a great weekend.
    • Is it safe to come out now?
