Prices may fluctuate and appear inconsistent with the day's trading on or around the opening and closing of the stock market. This is due to the pre and post market auctions for certain LSE stocks, this is usually between 07:30 and 08:15 and from 16:30 until 17:00. The day's closing prices are indicated with a "c" against the price.
