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

    • Crude palm oil prices could hit $700/mt FOB Belawan in 2020: Golden-Agri https://www.spglobal.com/platts/en/market-insights/latest-news/agriculture/111419-crude-palm-oil-prices-could-hit-700-mt-fob-belawan-in-2020-golden-agri
    • Well Bitcoin broke $8k and is currently around the $7.5k price area. It is not looking good at all.  It seems my $6.3k - $6.6k price area which I think could be the bottom or this specific downward move looks more likely now. I mentioned this price area on Monday (a few posts above) and now I think unless there is some serious buying or spectacular news followed by some serious pumping and short covering then Bitcoin is heading towards this price zone. 
    • There are many different ways to trade and applying or adopting trend following principles is merely just one such way. Trading more frequently does not guarantee any more success but it can increase the chances of making more losses if you do not have a robust trading system that is based on a sound trading plan. Trend following does not have to involve regular or frequent trading. That is the beauty of it. You can merely wait until you identify a trend which you wish to trade. Of course they will not all be successful as the trend could reverse sharply against you, it could be a false trend (looks like a trend but not) or simply the volatility could stop you out.  Day trading really is for full time traders in my personal opinion unless you have an expensive automated system which has been tested rigorously or you are an exceptional trader which can consistently make profits on most days without gambling, hoping or relying on luck.  Trend following suits me based on the time I have available to trade. I accept it is not for everyone but I believe all trading includes an element of trend following. Just how much depends on your trading style and methodologies adopted.
