Be careful - IG share dealing calculate GBX as GB amount - undesirable side effecrt


nrl

Question

Hi 

Noticed that IG's share dealing online platform has very painful and ridiculous  bug, treating GBX value of a script as GB. This is something I never expected from IG and raises a question about its credibility and quality of online platform.  To report the issue when called  its contact centre -  it is better not to speak about it as there is no one available to answer the call even after waited for 35 mins.

Thanks for your post, 

Can you elaborate on what the issue is, with an example if possible. I can't see or have heard of any issues. 

Once I have the example I will pass it onto developers straight away. 

All the best.

Hi,

I am experiencing a similar problem. Let's consider iShares STOXX Europe 50 UCITS ETF (ISIN = IE0008470928) as an example. When manually searching for this underlying in the large ETFs list one can see indeed that the currency is GBX.

The problem is that there is no other way to access the currency information. If one explicitly searches for the ETF in the "Search" section the currency does not appear, nor does it appear if one adds the ETF to a watchlist. Finally, if one clicks on the ETF and then click on the information link just above the "Buy" button, in the "Trading" sub-section it says "Currency: GBP", not GBX.

Not knowing with absolute certainty whether something costs £1 or £100 when looking at the data on screen is quite a fundamental issue :)

Best regards,

JR

    • Basically, they're letting creators mint NFTs and other digital stuff across multiple blockchains at once. Holograph isn't the only one trying to build bridges between blockchains. Projects like Omnibridge and Wormhole are also in the game, each with their own way of moving your digital assets around.  While Holograph focuses on this "native minting" thing across chains, other projects might be a better fit depending on what you need. Doing your research is key! Definitely something to consider. While Holograph recently scored a cool $11 million in funding, omnichain functionality is still pretty new. They've also got some interesting features, just landed on Bitget, and seems to be building an empire state. There could be bumps in the road, so be sure to do your own research and understand the potential risks. So, what do you think? Is Holograph the future of NFTs, or is it just a bunch of hype? Have you tried any other cross-chain solutions? Let's hear your thoughts in the comments!
    • May 22nd marks Bitcoin Pizza Day, a celebration of the first real-world transaction using Bitcoin. In 2010, Laszlo Hanyecz made history by offering 10,000 Bitcoins for two Papa John's pizzas, showcasing Bitcoin's practical potential. The cryptocurrency community commemorates this milestone with various events, including meetups, webinars, and giveaways. Bitget's Pizza Day Raffle is one such event, offering prizes in cryptocurrencies and tokens. Whether you're interested in Bitcoin's history, community, or uses, this event is worth exploring.
    • HashPack rocks. Their wallet's is easy to use, and they're everywhere in Hedera (dApps, DeFi, NFTs). The Bitget listing is gonna be insane for them.
