Hi, 

I'm new to the site and was hoping someone could help with a little query regarding Total Account Value. My total account value doesn't seem to equal book cost + available cash + profit/loss - total charges and seems to be a way out. 

I wasn't sure if I'm missing a charge somewhere or if i've simply got the equation wrong. 

Any help much appreciated.

 

Thanks

Ben

Make that 3 of us. Anyone any closer to an answer? Do you trade in different currencies? 

I am from the UK and trade mainly in US stocks. I lost a decent chunk yesterday though, for no apparent reason? 

Exchange rates haven't changed too drastically over the past week. 

Any advice @ig?

I saw the same on my account. I figured though it was me depositing GBP and purchasing USD names at a certain FX rate. 

If you make USD gains but the GBPUSD FX rate increases too that that will reduce the value of that USD gain in GBP.

Thats how I explained my difference anyway - account value broken out on the daily statement too which may help.

Looks like the balances on most peoples accounts are out. mine too..

Could it be the planned maintenance.. Even said they shouldnt be playing with peoples account values during maintenance, that could cause all sorts of issues and stress for different types of people.

Keep our data accurate please IG - even during maintenance.

Can anyone advise if the account value can be wrong out of trading hours or when the site is in maintenance, because my Positions total is much less than the total value of all the individual positions added up. This is about a 30% error.

I'm the same....my total value and book value are both wrong by almost $2k this morning and wasn't sure how often statements were sent but realised I didn't receive any last week. No public holidays here so bit concerning.

I hope its just because of the maintenance because mine is also wrong.

same here. Didn’t receive my daily statement and each stock balance has not changed much. Partial account is missing. Doesn’t feel safe having account with IG now

Same here. I panicked when I see my total account value is less than the real value. Turns out I'm not the only one.

Same here. 30% less of total account value without any trading activities

I checked my account this morning and the value is wrong. I was about £3000 missing which gave me a fright. The individual share values appear ok but the total is nuts.

Same here, my portfolio lost big portion of amount and the total amount does not make any sense. I believe this involves with the recent maintenance but hope the platform fix this issue ASAP as this is our REAL MONEY ACCOUNT.  

I'm also concerned, I'm calling IG now, waiting to talk to someone, hopefully this is just due to maintenance, but it would be much better customer service if someone from IG could actually post a message / email to say what's going on. If my regular bank account just wiped many thousands of my account, that wouldn't be acceptable.

Hi, is this because of the settlement period (days)?

see pic below.

You should try contacting helpdesk if it's a glitch problem. The problem I had few weeks ago was wrong account value due to glitch on their website. Maybe it was because of the maintenance. Anyway, maybe your problem is because of selling on bid when the stock value was at offer?

    • Hey @pravid17 I hope you're well.  In the leveraged trading industry there are brokers who don't hedge client's exposure and brokers (like ourselves) who do hedge client's exposure.  In a perfect world the exposure of short clients would net off the trades of long clients however this is not always the case. Our hedging model allows us to take an exposure in the underlying market for the remaining exposure which doesn't offset - This way we don't need to hedge every trade, worry about profits of our clients and results in lower costs for hedging in the underlying market (commissions, interest etc.). So say 60% of IG customer exposure in the ASX was long and 40% of exposure on the ASX was short. The 40% would net each other off but there's a remaining 20% of customers who need to be hedged to cover their positions. We go into the market and hedge this.  We make our money primarily through our spreads and overnight funding  with other fees making up a small proportion of our revenue. I would like to remind also that IG is regulated by several bodies globally, including top-tier regulators like the UK's FCA, Germany's BaFIN, Australia's ASIC - This should be quite reassuring from a dealing execution and transparency perspective.  I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other question 
    • A survey from Reviews.org, which featured 1000 Americans, found that as many as 1 in 4 US subscribers may quit the service in the next year.    Jeremy Naylor | Writer, London | Publication date: Friday 23 September 2022  There was an interesting breakdown, but the main reason was affordability. Only 18% said they would move to a cheaper competitor. IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor looks at the numbers. Netflix subscription woes Netflix Inc (All Sessions) could be in for a rough time ahead over the next 12 months if a new survey is anything to go by, which was conducted in the US. Out of the 1,000 adults that took part in this survey undertaken by Reviews.org, around 25% of those that were covered said that they would be cancelling their Netflix subscription within the next 12 months. Now, it says with that 25% of US subscribers to Netflix considering leaving, not to join a competitor, but mostly because of pressures on household bills. This is how it is split: rising cost of subscriptions - 40% inflation - 20% a lack of content - 22% spending more time on the services of others - 18% So you can see, a minority said they were going to other services, such as those provided by Disney Plus or Amazon Prime. The cost of Netflix has risen dramatically this year as its basic plan increased by 11% in January and its other plans by 20% to 25%. Now these were the first price increases for three years, so that itself is relatively new for a lot of subscribers. Netflix share price Let's take a look at the Netflix share price. You can see on the far left hand side of this chart the COVID lows at $290.39. We saw a whacking great increase there of 141% to the top and the record high in Netflix shares back in November 2021. And that was when subscriptions were rising, people were paying more for their services, and it was all humming beautifully. And then all of a sudden people started questioning the numbers of streaming services they were undertaking with some deciding to withdraw from Netflix. All of a sudden the big drops started coming through with profit warnings and sales warnings. We've recently hit a new low of $162.50. Since then there has been a little bit of an increase. We're currently trading at $232.75, but we are down by a margin of 1.75% in today's session, which reflects this news that we could well see a relatively large drop in subscribers for Netflix in the US within the next 12 months.
    • Market data to trade the week of 26 September: Nasdaq; NXT From the economic calendar next week IG technical analyst, Axel Rudolph, picks up on a short trade on the Nasdaq around US inflation data. Meanwhile, despite another light week of corporate data, Axel picks out the chart of Next plc (NXT) as an interesting trade to think about.
