All Share/ETF CFD historical charting should be considered to be indicative in nature. FXCM stores Dealing data for the most highly active stocks, and is therefore able to provide Bid/Ask charts on the platforms. However, for most Share/ETF CFD instruments, FXCM utilizes exchange transactional data, which are the prices at which a seller and a buyer met in the underlying exchange. Exchange transactional data has several differences from Dealing data, and cannot be used to confirm execution of non-Exchange based trading. Please always refer to your rates window in the platform for real time Dealing pricing.
