Why does Trading 212 not obtain the best or near the best market prices

On a separate note about price updates, I have had this experience multiple times where a price does not seem to update for a while ( too long to be normal) until I refresh the browser and this initiates price updates in multiple clicks.

Initially I thought this was probably an issue on my end but have since realised that there is probably some kind of timeout somewhere in the code which may be stopping the price updates until the browser is refreshed which brings the page quickly back to its current state (price and chart details).

do check if this is happening to you when you don’t see prices getting updated.
