The IG spread on Rightmove PLC DFB is wrong

It recently became a FTSE100 share and so the IG spread should be 0.001 not 0.0025.

Please fix asap.

Thank you in advance.

The spread is whatever IG Index decide. It's not wrong. Are you sure you mean the spread?

I think IG has a special tier spread rate for FTSE 100 listed companies but regularly fail to implement it on new arrivals, mancunian is a regular contributor on a mission to keep IG on their toes.

Hi - on shares the IG spread is fixed and is wrapped around the underlying market. IG does not decide the spread outside of this fixed 0.1% and this is a common misconception (for example on FTSE 100 shares). What the OP is referring to is the 0.1 Vs 0.25 as seen in column 2 in the highlighted rows. Hope this clarifies our process :)

 I spot these quite often and it is usually after a FTSE100 re shuffle.

To clarify I am referring to the IG spread only and not the market spread.  It is easiest to see this when the market is closed as then there is no market spread and just the IG spread.

IG spreads for FTSE100 shares DFB are  0.001 and James and the IG team are usually very quick to rectify these.

Thanks James

    • So US indices have been climbing higher (albeit a red day today). Trump needs the US stock market to blossom in order for him to say that it is a lot higher since he became US President.  So what happened to the wall he was going to build? This was one of the key pledges he was making during his election campaign. It is no different to Boris Johnson saying with confidence that the UK would leave the EU on 31st October 2019! There were even messages on the M1 (Motorway) in the UK inferring this.  POLITICAL SPIN and Marketing Wizardry at its best. Trump has focussed the media attention on the US-China Trade War to deflect from his broken promise so far.  Traders need to understand the fundamentals and how they work when it comes to politics and economics when trading not just US and UK indices but all major indices around the world. There were lots of stock market predictions being made about how it was going to see a big fall but this has not materialised. It may well do in 2020, I don't know, but never fight the trend until the bend at the end. Even then the bend can turn back again and continue which is what we have been witnessing with the US indices as politicians control the news flow, dictate the narrative and plot the course for stock markets.  
    • One should treat trading like a business. In any successful business there would be a business plan. So for any successful trader there must be a trading plan.  There is a cheesy line but very true which is something like - failing to plan is a plan to fail.  Some of the best and most successful traders in the world will have and are more likely to have a trading plan. I would be surprised if they do not.  This trading plan can be an evolving plan which can be changed and adapted as situations change, knowledge improves, experience is gained, etc.
