One of our most highly-requested features is here.


Sometimes it’s important to have a clearer sense of the price at which your investments have been trading. That’s where live pricing comes in.

Now when you look at the price of all US stocks and the first 350 largest UK stocks, you see the price will be streamed into your app every five seconds. 

In the coming weeks, we will also pipe this data into your portfolio and investment data, so that you can track the performance of your investments more closely.

This feature is available for the majority of the 350 largest UK stocks. Prices on all other UK stocks and ETFs will continue to show 15 minute-delayed data from the LSE.

To see full details of when the stock price was last updated, go to the bottom of any stock page on your app:




Remember, live prices are still indicative and the price you execute at will likely vary from this. Likewise, the gain you see on your portfolio or stock holdings is indicative and not necessarily the profit you will realise by selling your stocks or portfolio. Sometimes prices can be delayed so always check the timestamp on the stock’s page for context regarding pricing data.

Let us know how you enjoy this feature. Join the discussion on the forum:


When you invest, your capital is at risk. The value of your portfolio can go down as well as up and you may get back less than you invest. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results.
