Include total costs for dealing (commission and taxes)

I've been trading away for a couple of weeks now and yes, the platform is pretty easy to use.

There is a "but" however - the running profit and loss only shows what would be gained through selling a share at a higher price.

It does not consider the initial cost of placing the deal, or how much it would cost you to sell again.

It's a misleading figure that must have left some others out of pocket in the past.

I'm fiddling away with a seperate spreadsheet that does include those little "extras".

It would be excellent if you could figure into the profits all of the charges and make that figure represent the "actual" amount the user will pocket.

Thanks for your post @MartinC

If you're trading on a CFD account unfortunately there's nothing that we currently have in place to resolve this issues. The commission and any other fees come out separately. 

With a share dealing account you can change the booking cost so it includes the commission and charges in the profit/ loss. If you need help calculating this I would advise giving us a call and our help desk will amend it for you. 

All the best

Hi Charlotte,

Thank you for this information.
Could you please explain how we change the booking cost to include commission and charges in the profit/loss? I've been looking around the platform for a while but cannot find this for the life of me!

Many Thanks

    • It would be difficult and the next line of action would be withdrawal of assets to a good alternative exchange or wallet and observe how the whole drama will end 
    • The recent turbulence in the market has resulted in significant losses and liquidations for many traders. While futures trading offers the potential for rapid portfolio growth, it also carries considerable risks, demanding both bravery and a strong belief in technical analysis (TA). However, despite my attempts, futures trading hasn't been my strong suit. Creating a resilient crypto portfolio doesn't necessarily mean diving into high-risk ventures like futures trading. It took me some time to realize that there are alternative, nearly risk-free methods to build a solid portfolio. Yet, the allure of quick profits in crypto often overshadows the patience required for these strategies. Whether you're involved in futures or spot trading, the market's unpredictability can lead to significant losses, as demonstrated by the recent downturn affecting BTC and most altcoins. Many traders found themselves unprepared, lacking sufficient USDT reserves for dollar-cost averaging (DCA) during market recoveries. Nevertheless, there is hope. For those looking to maximize profits while minimizing risks, products such as launchpools, launchpads, or PoolX offer promising opportunities. Available on various top centralized exchanges (CEX), these platforms involve staking assets like USDT, BGB, BNB, or OKB, depending on the exchange. One observation I've noted is that whenever an exchange announces a launchpool or launchpad event, the value of the exchange token tends to soar. This surge is fueled by users eager to participate and earn complimentary tokens. Following the event, participants can benefit from both the acquired tokens and the increased value of the exchange token. This approach has proven successful for me, as evidenced by the recent ENA launchpool event on Bitget. Have you explored similar opportunities in the past? Please feel free to share your experiences.
