Why am I unable to get a quote for certain investments around midday?

The London Stock Exchange (LSE) has introduced an intraday auction which means the continuous trading of invetments will pause for around two minutes at 12.00pm everyday. This means you will not be able to get a quote for certain investments around that time. If this occurs, we would suggest attempting to trade again after 12.02pm, where a quote should become available.
