What is it?

Stockwatch is our virtual portfolio facility, which lets you create up to ten watch lists.

Stockwatch is a good way to learn about the stock market and keep track of profits and losses you could have made without risking your real money. It is as realistic as an actual portfolio as it shows the bid /offer spread, total cost of your assumed purchase (Book Cost) and price movements throughout the day.

How does it work?

When you add a stock to a stockwatch list we ask you to enter a number of shares and a value. We then show the movement in price for that stock so you can review the value of any certificated shareholdings or stocks that you are interested in.

Stockwatch lists can include a mixture of UK listed stocks and shares, including Funds, and stocks listed on the following markets: Australia, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Singapore, Spain and the USA.
