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!

    • FCA rules to ban crypto products are dumb. I used to have a Bitcoin ETN in my SIPP which was affected by the ban, meaning I could no longer buy the product anymore, only sell it. I sold it recently with a heavy heart knowing under the current rules I could not buy it again.   With the proceeds I bought a range of Bitcoin mining stocks like Argo Blockchain, Hut8 and Mara which act as a leveraged play on Bitcoin price (like all commodity miners do versus the underlying commodity). These miners carry greater operational risk than holding Bitcoin itself and the share price is much more volatile too. So instead of protecting me, all the FCA has done is forced me to take greater risk elsewhere.

    • If you still think the billions being spent on infrastructure is just to see off the covid endemic now might be a good time to wake up.    Meanwhile in Taiwan, 'Well that's strange: In Taiwan, the number of people dying after their COVID-19 vaccination is exceeding the number of deaths from the virus itself.'  1nPr0p0rt10n2 @1Pr0p0rt10n2  4h More Die After Vaccination Than From COVID-19 in Taiwan (ntd.com)   A US hospital healthcare worker explains the use of the PCR to inflate covid hospitalisations and death numbers.
