Trying to buy a stock but the price on order is incorrectly calculated

I am putting 2 GBP and 100 shares, and the total cost is 10 GBP. That doesn't look right. Please, can you look into this? Thanks.

Hi, not sure what stock you are looking at but are you sure it's listed in £ and not pence? Stocks on the LSE are in pence (US markets are in $). If your limit order is for 2 pence x quantity 100 then £2 plus £8 charges = £10.

    • Hi does anyone know how to work out the credit received when selling a strangle in the IG platform?
    • @Toppie_Australia If you want to trade crypto use a crypto broker such as FTX and Binance their quite reputable and their margins are hugely smaller than IG. Personally I don't like the Binance platform it's just too confusing to navigate around and their id verification is a nightmare (just don't even go there).  I prefer using the 3commas platform and use the API interface to connect my brokerage accounts.   
    • I think most professional traders have that methodology and mindset its what sets us apart from the rest I don't look at the VIX, as with cycles for you, the VIX isn't of interest to me, done perfectly well without the need for it so far and that won't change going forward
