P&L assumes shares were bought at $0.00


Recommended Posts

Morning all,

I bought a number of shares a while ago and I like to review my profit and loss value (P&L) fairly regularly. One of my shares now displays P&L as the total value, assuming I bought my shares at $0.00. Now that would have been great, but I can no longer tell if my shares are positive or negative without scrolling back in the chart to see what the price was when I bought them.

Can anyone tell me why this is happening and how to fix it?

Hi @McTucci,

It is likely that there was a Corporate action. You will need to edit your book cost. To do so please follow the instruction on https://www.ig.com/uk/help-and-support/investments/share-dealing-and-isas/how-do-i-edit-my-book-cost .

All the best - Arvin

    • Why is this stock unavailable to open for non-Pro clients? Surely a fund is less risky than an individual stock.
    • Hi @Kgrp74 Thank you for reaching out.  HMRC rules don't allow you to hold foreign currency in an ISA, but you can still buy international shares. The gains on currency conversions are only seen and credited in the account once you sell the shares if the currency rate is favorable to you. We also have to consider the 0.5% spread added to the exchange rate and commission charges which would normally offset your profits.  Thanks, OfentseIG
    • DAX/CAC Technical Highlights: DAX reclaimed broken support, but rally still not viewed as bullish CAC 40 has trend-line resistance ahead to watch on further strength   DAX and CAC 40 Technical Outlook: Rally Viewed as Likely to Fail Soon   DAX Daily Chart   DAX Chart by TradingView   The CAC is trading around resistance in the 6k area, with a trend-line from the summer high lying not too far ahead. A turn down could find some initial support in the 5700s, but the low at 5628 is the big level to watch. Broad outlook is of course very similar to the DAX.   CAC Daily Chart   CAC 40 Chart by TradingView   Oct 6, 2022 | DailyFX Paul Robinson, Strategist
