Am I guaranteed the quoted price when I place a trade?


When you place a Quote & Deal order through us we will obtain the best price available via Barclays Stockbrokers Price Improver. With a Quote & Deal order we will endeavour to hold the quote for up to 15 seconds, therefore reducing your exposure to any price movements while you decide.

However this quote may be withdrawn by the Retail Service Provider (RSP)* prior to the expiry of the 15 second countdown due to various conditions that include market liquidity, order size and volatility of the stock. Due to these conditions it is not always possible to obtain a Quote & Deal, at which time if you are looking to buy or sell shares you could try the other Order Types available

To find out more about the Order Types available to you, visit our Flexible Order Types section of the website.
