Hi Laramie,I am interested to hear how the DavySelect trading Platform works in practice.
Let's stick with Laramies example above of buying 5000 GSK shares.
When I want to buy these can I see the "live" trading price of the share. This share can have a 30p range per day. Do I simply purchase these shares myself at the "live" price or do I leave an instruction with DavySelect to purchase 5000 GSK shares? If so how can I be happy that DavySelect are getting me the best price.
For example. When I did business with Campbell O'Connor, I was watching the live trades online. I would ring Ken and he would get the price I wanted there and then. I could immediately see my trade online within seconds of giving the instruction over the phone. There was nil charge for this service.
Back in the day when I did some trading with Bloxham, you phoned them and they would wander off and make the purchase. In between giving the instruction the share price could have changed by several pence. I don't want to go back to those days ever again.
All Irish and UK stocks are traded at live prices on the platform. Trades for other markets are done by limit order.
