Share Risers FAQ
- Q. Why are share risers important?
- A. The 'risers' in a day show which shares are going up in value; and is often a good place to start to find out what is happening today on the stock market.
- Q. Should I buy shares in the 'risers' or 'gainers' list?
- A. Not necessarily - if a share is rising, it may have already reached its peak - and todays risers can often be tomorrow's fallers. However, some shares can rise for several consecutive days - so do some further research.
- Q. I don't recognise any of the companies in the share risers - why not?
- A. The risers page shows all stock market listed companies, regardless of size. A smaller company can sometimes have a large percentage change movement by going up just a few pence.
- Q. Can I see just the FTSE 100 risers?
- A. Yes - or at least the nearest thing - we show risers for each sector and index - check out the UK 100 page
