Export Current Positions to Excel

Recommended Posts

Dear team

New user here and I have a quick question.  I came across to your platform due to the competetive brokerage fees and I am happy enough so far.  But I must say I'm surprsied to discover that the basic layout / functionality of all other trading websites I have used is missing.

In particular, the ability to export your CURRENT positions as an excel file (CSV, etc).  I'm not interested in exporting my trading history - I wish to export my CURRENT positions so I can do some analysis of my weightings etc. This is a core routine task performed by sophistocated and amateur investors, yet it is missing from your otherwise very sophistocated platform.

Such a basic product feature but bizarrely missing?

And while I am here it is worth suggesting that you should also copy your competitors and have additional (optional) tabs in the Positions screen - such as showing your positions in your domestic currency and also your individual P&L expressed as a % for each individual holding.

Your help in relation to the Excel question most appreciated.

Thanks Andy, your product looks great, but with all due respect we shouldn't be having to pay $15 per month just to have the most basic functionality within the IG user interface.

I will give IG Markets another 30 to reply and resolve otherwise I am going to take my business to another platform that does offer this essential functionality.

Hello? Anyone from IG Markets actually work here? Can anyone recommend other platforms that have a better U/I for trading? I have been looking at CMC Markets. Anyone had much experience with them? Thinking of making the move soon.

    • Financial Anarchy: one of the main fallacies of Bitcoin. You are that independent holding bitcoin that anytime you want to buy it or sell it have to go through an exchange using your full identity. With all sort of passports and ids checks. Let's not forget that the main goal of many bitcoiners is to amass as much of the correlated fiat currency as possible. With the romantic topic of becoming a blade runner paying in SHA-256 hashes to other elite individuals you watch how your virtual coins grow in value, that value that is established in that so-hated fiat currency. The happiness of a bitcoiner comes with the grow in price of that coin in the exchange. The more coins of the fiat currency they get from their bitcoins the happier they are. So it is all cyberpunk literature with a bit of TAZ philosophy, but bitcoin is no more than a very volatile "financial product", unfortunately , and since I am surrounded in IT departments by bitcoiners I am so tired of listening to people excusing themselves for choosing this overhyped movement over any other FX pair or metal. I understand that people want to get rich quickly and that is why they chose bitcoin, but they want to get rich by grabbing more and more of that fiat currency that they hold in the bank accounts. So let's be honest with ourselves, let's cut the rubbish and call it like it is: Greed on a very volatile market.  
    • The Fed wants to ban it or tax it. No central government likes crypto as its a form of financial anarchy. 
    • Very good point, Casey. They see Bitcoin and want to emulate it, or in the case of the Fed try and ban it. Bitcoin and Crypto have DEMAND. A Euro backed or $ backed crypto may not have them same demand, but will also be seen as currency. Crypto's lack of provenance (political and geographic) is a major USP. The market normally wins as governments know too well.
