How to use the Research Centre

The value of investments can fall as well as rise and you could get back less than you invest. If you're unsure about investing, seek independent advice. We offer execution-only investment services. We don't give you advice about your investment decisions or make personal recommendations.

This short video will run you through our Research Centre, which contains all the tools and resources you'll need to help you make smarter investment decisions.

You'll find the 'Research Centre' within the 'News and Research' section of Smart Investor, under 'Research and Insight'.

Then, click 'Our Research Centre'.

Here you'll be able to access UK market performance, Quick Quotes, market news and quick links to other market information.

Use the tabs at the top to navigate around the Research Centre. You can view stock factsheets in the Company Information section.

Here you'll find more information on Director deals, dividend dates, broker views and technical analysis.

You can also view live pricing by selecting 'Get Quick Quote'.

You'll need to log in to see our Watch Lists (previously called Virtual Portfolios) to create a list of stocks and monitor their performance or register your details if this is your first visit.

You can keep up to date by setting alerts to notify you of market movements and market insights throughout the day.

Visit the Market News section to follow a range of news feeds and see breaking news throughout the day.
