I recently closed a trade which was running at a profit. I only got my margin returned and not the profit from the P&L?



There shouldn't be a delay. As soon as you close a position your margin should go back to your available funds. Please note your running losses will show in your available funds to trade. Meaning if you had £100 on your account. 

You take out a position that needs £50 margin. (Ignoring spread in this)

Your available funds will be £100 - £50 (margin which will be returned once closed). 

If your position is in a £70 profit your available funds will be £50 + £70 = £120. 

So if you think your available funds only added on your margin it's because it did. Your profit and loss on positions changes for available funds. Once you close the position though it consolidates that profit. You will be able to see the closed position profit in your history. 

All the best

    • It's exciting to see mobile mining and projects like ICE blockchain offering passive earnings. ICE's decentralized governance and scalability make it stand out, handling millions of transactions per second. With features like decentralized identity services, ICE is paving the way for Web3 principles.
    • I will, but as stated, it's the list page which I use the most for my trading. I use another provider for live charts. If you get the list thing sorted that would be great!
