Hi ,

 

Your Equity should equal the cash balance (Funds) plus or minus running profit/loss. Margin would be the deposit required for the open positions on your account and available to deal is the difference between your Equity and the Margin.

 

As an example, if my cash balance was £100 and I was running a profit of £20, my Equity should equal £120.

 

Can you check your account figures again to make sure. If they don't add up we would suggest sending a screenshot of your account balance's to helpdesk.uk@ig.com so that we can take a look for you.

 

Thanks,

Hi ,

 

The 'Funds' figure will only change if you close a position, as at this point you are realising a profit or loss. This would also update instantly if a payment or withdrawal is made or if there is a charge on your account.

 

The live updating figures are your 'Equity', 'Margin', 'P&L' and 'Available to deal', as these are all derived from the current price of your opening positions.

 

I hope that this answers your query.

 

Thanks!

    • Why is it that last week I was able to trade and make money on DWAC, but this week, now that IG know that it is a stock that if you play it right can make people money I cannot buy it? It seems that this week it is 'Too complex' for me to purchase!
