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.

I have same issue with IG today. Waiting for their answer. Don’t feel safe with IG now. Thieves.

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.

I’m still having problems with my total account value as I sold some stock and made a profits but not showing the correct value even after I deducted the fees. Anyone else having the same problem? 
 

tbh from day 1 I started the trading even let’s say in on profit £200 but my total value will not add up to what I invested plus £200.

 

can anyone help?

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?

    • KO Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge Daily Chart, The Coca-Cola Company, (KO) Daily Chart KO Elliott Wave Technical Analysis   FUNCTION: Counter Trend MODE: Corrective STRUCTURE: Flat POSITION: Minute wave {c} of 2.   DIRECTION: Bottom in wave {c}. DETAILS: With yesterday’s session we’ve had a spike in volume on the bull side, which could make us start thinking the correction is either completed, or soon to be. We have almost reached 1.618 {c} vs. {a}., but more importantly we have reached the base of the leading diagonal in wave 1, where many times support is found.         KO Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge 4Hr Chart, The Coca-Cola Company, (KO) 4Hr Chart KO Elliott Wave Technical Analysis   FUNCTION: Counter Trend MODE: Corrective STRUCTURE: Flat POSITION: Wave (v) of {c}. DIRECTION: Bottom in wave (v). DETAILS: Here on the intraday chart it’s easier to see the five wave move in wave {c} which seems to have unfolded nicely. Looking for a clear sign of a bottom in place.        As of April 18, 2024, Elliott Wave analysts closely monitor the daily and 4-hour charts of The Coca-Cola Company (Ticker: KO) to provide insightful technical forecasts. These Elliott Wave predictions play a crucial role in identifying potential trends and reversal points in the stock's price movement.     * KO Elliott Wave Technical Analysis – Daily Chart* The Elliott Wave analysis on the daily chart of Coca-Cola shows a corrective phase within a flat structure, identified as minute wave {c} of 2. This phase is categorized under a counter trend function, suggesting that the ongoing correction is approaching completion. The recent trading session marked a significant increase in volume on the bullish side, hinting at a nearing end to the correction. Technically, the price has approached the critical 1.618 Fibonacci extension of wave {c} relative to {a}, reaching a key support level at the base of the leading diagonal from wave 1—a typical zone for finding support.   * KO Elliott Wave Technical Analysis – 4hr Chart* On the 4-hour chart, Coca-Cola’s stock exhibits a detailed structure of the corrective phase, clearly depicting wave (v) of {c}. This finer resolution allows for a clearer visualization of the complete five-wave move within wave {c}, indicating the likelihood of a bottom formation. Analysts are keenly observing for definitive signs that confirm the bottom is firmly in place, signaling potential bullish reversals.   Technical Analyst : Alessio Barretta   Source : Tradinglounge.com get trial here!    
    • I came across an interesting new meme token called EPIK that launched on the Solana blockchain earlier this month. It features a playful little duck character and has been gaining traction since its debut. In my opinion, several factors contribute to EPIK's potential. Meme coins naturally attract attention, and EPIK's unique duck character design helps it stand out. Additionally, backing from crypto influencers has fueled market interest. It seems on-chain activity is also picking up steam, with daily TV reaching millions of dollars and the number of holders approaching 10,000. With a strong community presence in both English-speaking and Chinese-speaking communities, a recent listing on Bitget potentially exposing it to a much wider audience, coupled with the potential for further price increases, I believe EPIK is a project to keep an eye on.
