Profit and Loss Trading Statements

Question

Please can we have an update on rectifying the problems with the P&L history statements. This problem has persisted for about 10 days now and was apparently being investigated as a priority by the incident team!

 

Positions closed earlier than 18th September cannot be seen.

The funding for closed positions is incorrect.

The closing total for each position is incorrect.

The funding still increases each day, despite the fact that positions have been closed some time ago!!

 

Accurate P&L accounts are a fundamental requirement. I simply cannot trust the data being presented on the screen at the moment.

 

This is very poor customer service by IG.

Its getting worse. Its two months since your mention of the history P/L issues and is now a lot worse.

Today's figures are a meaningless jumble of random numbers. I just wonder how we can trust IG's figures.

 

If nothing has changed except for the worst in two months, then its crystal clear that IG pays scant attention to the issue. Its simply not good enough and IG is really leading with its chin on this issue. They have had plenty of time to fix it. This issue has the potential to blow up the whole company if outside authorities start to ask questions. The answers will simply not be available. 

 

If a share broker treated their clients in this way, they would quickly be out of business.

Hi - please can you send the file itself to helpdesk@ig.com along with a quick overview of the issue you are having and someone will be able to look into this for you. As far as I know, no one else has  reported this so it would be something which requires further investigation.

Yeah, my running p&l aint showing proper figures either in my android app. Was doing so to start with, but after a week of so of demo account trading, it appears to have Frozen, even though individual trades in position panel are changing as they should.

    • Crude palm oil prices could hit $700/mt FOB Belawan in 2020: Golden-Agri https://www.spglobal.com/platts/en/market-insights/latest-news/agriculture/111419-crude-palm-oil-prices-could-hit-700-mt-fob-belawan-in-2020-golden-agri
    • Well Bitcoin broke $8k and is currently around the $7.5k price area. It is not looking good at all.  It seems my $6.3k - $6.6k price area which I think could be the bottom or this specific downward move looks more likely now. I mentioned this price area on Monday (a few posts above) and now I think unless there is some serious buying or spectacular news followed by some serious pumping and short covering then Bitcoin is heading towards this price zone. 
    • There are many different ways to trade and applying or adopting trend following principles is merely just one such way. Trading more frequently does not guarantee any more success but it can increase the chances of making more losses if you do not have a robust trading system that is based on a sound trading plan. Trend following does not have to involve regular or frequent trading. That is the beauty of it. You can merely wait until you identify a trend which you wish to trade. Of course they will not all be successful as the trend could reverse sharply against you, it could be a false trend (looks like a trend but not) or simply the volatility could stop you out.  Day trading really is for full time traders in my personal opinion unless you have an expensive automated system which has been tested rigorously or you are an exceptional trader which can consistently make profits on most days without gambling, hoping or relying on luck.  Trend following suits me based on the time I have available to trade. I accept it is not for everyone but I believe all trading includes an element of trend following. Just how much depends on your trading style and methodologies adopted.
