* Please note that there can be occasions when the Selling price shown may be temporarily higher than the Buying price. This can sometimes happen when the stock market is closed but it can also happen at other times for a variety of reasons. However, when the stock market is open and you place a trade, the selling price available to you will never be higher than the buying price. Live prices will be available when you place a deal with us during market hours. Please check these and contact us if you are unable to deal online.
