I am keen to move stockbrokers for my ISA and dealing account which is currently with Selftrade (now Equiniti) who have a poor and terribly slow website which doesn't enable trades to be set out of hours and doesn't work with the Chrome browser. I am keen not to go with a small company, nor a bank, nor pay too much! I was considering IG.…

In my case it was a dramatic move of the euro: sterling exchange rate which suddenly led to the UK being flooded with cars from the confident. This depressed the value of stock and…

I tried Domino's for the first time in years recently. Both products and service have distinctly worsened. Could this explain the share price?
