I am not sure why there is such a diff in price. However, I was initially indicated a price by the broker and when he executed it it was actually better. I suspect it something to do with demand, ie if there lots of buying activity the seller tries for a better price - maybe!
Take a look a medisys, I am tempted, looking at the historic price, cheap enough for a little punt possibly
This share will have a hard job of getting above 25 imho. There is massive resistance at this level and the recent attempt to breech this level failed.
Joeski, if you ever get offered a better price at this level by a broker. Take care. There doesn't seem to be a lot of sellers left.
Buying a large amount... Buying any amount may prove difficult to sell back. You have to make the spread and the commision before break even. How far away is that?
Getting a better price from a broker at this level of stock normally only means one thing. You get such a great price, you may buy more.
I wish you guys well with your stock and hope you make money on it, and the only reason I post is to alert other maybe less knowledgeble traders other than yourselves to do their own research, just in case they are tempted to leap blindly in.
Perhaps you don't realise, but typing in capitals is perceived as shouting, so perhaps you could remember to type with the Caps Lock off.
Round here we're not used to people ramping stocks they own, and it's not something which is encouraged. So apologies if you're not ramping that stock, however perhaps you could just bear this in mind for the future. Thanks!
Crazy guy - the spread reflects ( amongst other things) the liquidity and volatility of a stock. Also the number of competing market makers ( for SEAQ) ) - Thus (say) Cookson's may have a 1% spread (approx 1/4p) whereas Torotrack may have 10% - but a lot more Cookson's will turn over on any normal given day.
