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
