Issuer profile – overview

What is ticker?

Ticker module provides the below information on an Issuer profile page.

Price (trading currency)

The price in this context is the price of a tradable security/instrument. This is the last automatic trade, the last uncrossing price or the mid-price of the best bid and offer prices available for the security. Within brackets you will find the trading currency of the security/instrument.

Open / Last close

Opening price as a result of the Opening Auction that took place before market open and the result of the previous trading day's Closing Auction taking place immediately after market close.

High / Low

The daily high is the highest price reached during a given day.
The daily low is the lowest price reached during a given day. If there has been no price change during the day then the high and low values will be the same as the previous trading day’s close.

Bid / Offer

The bid price is the buying price for securities in the market (i.e. the highest price any buyer is willing to pay for a specific tradable security/instrument at a given time). The investor will sell for this price.
The offer price is the selling price for securities in the market (i.e. the lowest price any seller has declared that they are willing to accept for a specific tradable isecurity/nstrument at a given time). The investor will buy for this.

Special conditions

A security’s percentage change from its previous trading day’s closing share price is calculated by the actual vendor disseminating the data.  Some may rebase the previous trading day’s close official closing price of London Stock Exchange following a corporate action for comparison processes, some may not. When looking at price movement of a security on the first day of trading following its admission, most vendors will use the first actual execution of the day as the base value not the original IPO price.

What is price chart?

  • Price chart shows the share price performance of a security/instrument.
  • To improve the website user experience, we have merged old website's summary chart, interactive chart and technical analysis chart functionality into a single chart which you can simply access through an Issuer profile.
  • All the main functionalities covering security/instrument comparison, chart type selection, technical analysis indicators, time period selection and etc. are now available on a single chart and most importantly the chart is now updating dynamically within trading hours. Which means that you do not have to refresh the webpage to see the chart movements.
  • The price chart can be represented as line (selected by default) or candlestick.
  • You can add the below indicators;
    • Volatility - Compares the spread between a symbol’s high and low prices. It assumes that market tops are generally accompanied by decreased volatility, and that the latter stages of a market bottom are generally accompanied by decreased volatility.
    • Relative Volatility Index (RVI) - Measures the direction of volatility. The calculation is identical to the Relative Strength Index (RSI) except that the RVI measures a 10-day standard deviation of high and low prices instead of measuring period-to-period price changes.
    • Simple Moving Average -  Calculates the average value of a security’s price over a period of time. When calculating MA, a mathematical analysis of the security’s average value over a predetermined time period is made. As the security’s price changes, its average price moves up or down.
    • MACD (Moving Average Convergence / Divergence) - A technical analysis indicator that is part of the family of oscillators and is based upon the the comparison of three moving averages. The event of a MACD line crossing upwards the Signal Line is considered a purchase (bullish) indication. Conversely, when the MACD line crosses downwards the Signal Line a possible indication of selling (bearish) condition.
    • Relative Strength Index (RSI) - A popular momentum indicator, sometimes considered to signify of overbought condition (when above 70) or an oversold condition (when below 30). Thus, it reveals if a possible trend reversal might be on the way. Nonetheless, being an oscillator, many analysts only consider it when a confirmation comes from other tools such as the MACD.
    • Bollinger Bands - Plotted in the same area of the price values, and are an indication of volatility, i.e. the bands tend to become wider when the market becomes more volatile, and narrow when it is less volatile. When prices approach the upper or lower side of the band, a trend reversal might occur.
  • Different time frames can be selected from the dropdown;
    • Today
    • 1 week
    • 1 month
    • 6 months
    • 1 year (selected by default)
    • 5 years
    • Custom - You can customise the time frame by selecting a from-date and a to-date
