Historical P&L Data

I wrote to the Helpdesk a few days ago about the historical P&L data and have just had a response saying that is no longer available before September 2017. I'm not sure if that means you have reset, or if you are only going to make short term data available for this point forward.  Either way, this is very disappointing.

 

That data is the only way I know of to reconcile costs with a particular trade.  I've always been able to download all my historical P&L data going back years.  Being cut off from that data is a real problem, particularly when, as far as I know, there was no notice.

 

Suggestions:

 

1.  Review this change and reverse it.  This is important data for tracking performance, and at tax time.

2. Alternatively, include the data in the daily statements so the same information is available (i.e. provide information about borrowing costs, interest, and commissions for each closed trade).

3.  Come up with another way for customers to match specific charges and fees to a specific trade.

 

Thanks

 

James.

Hi  this was caused by the fact that we migrated to a new system for P&L history in September and unfortunately the data from the old system could not be transferred across.

 

We can send you a tax statement for FY 16/17 as this may contain the info you are looking for. Let me know if you'd like me to send this. Alternatively check out your previous statements via My IG > Live Accounts > Statements.

 

This change will not be reversed so our apologies for any inconvenience it is causing you.

 

Cheers,

 

Will

Hi - I'm talking about CFDs in this instance.  I track my share trading with Sharesight and have all the data I need there and in your statements.   (I'd love Sharesight and IG to get together so I could track my CFDs there also)

 

I'd like to get the data from 01 October 2015 thru to whatever date you cut over.  I can currently see back to a closed trade on Fortescue Metals Group on 20/09/2017 and no further.  Can you email me my historical data on the email address you have linked for this account.  I track my CFD trades the way the IG  P&L report does it, where all costs associated with a trade are included in the report.  I just cut and paste from your data into my spreadsheet.  I have most of the data I'm requesting, but am attempting to do my tax return and don't have all of it, I've missed one or two when updating my spreadsheet.

 

Will the new system keep this historical data long term, or do I need to download it and store it myself on a regular basis?

 

Thanks for helping out.

 

James.

Hi - I've asked one of our senior sales traders to send you your historic trade activity via excel. We will send it to the email address which you have on file with us. Feel free to call if you wish to discuss this further, or if you would specifically like a tax statement sent out for the exact tax year, please let us know.

Hello,

 

I too need this data (for my tax return).

 

I did this in my CFD Account (old version):

1. Go to Account -> "P&L Breakdown".

2. Enter dates for last tax year.

3. Click "View History" and it displays "There are no results for this request".

4. Click "Download History" and the resulting CSV file contains no data rows.

 

I can't retrieve this data but can you retrieve it for me i.e. all of the columns in the CSV for P&L Breakdown.

I can download Transactions and "Past Activity" for the last tax year, but the data is insufficient for my tax return.

 

Thanks.

Hi there, I have similar question.

How can I change a daily statement into a quarterly of half yearly statement?

I need a tax statement of FY2017-2018 as well. 

I am so disappointed since many of features are not so user-friendly.

    • USDJPY has been regaining ground this week, but inflation differentials and a three-month trend signal the potential for another turn lower Source: Bloomberg      Joshua Mahony | Senior Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Friday 27 January 2023  USDJPY set for third monthly decline The USDJPY pair has been on the slide since its October high, with the historical 147.63 resistance level ultimately marking the end of the dramatic 21-month rally that saw the pair gain almost 50%. Much of that came through a period that saw US inflation soar as Japanese prices remain subdued. That disparity remains, but the direction of travel has certainly shifted as US CPI declines and Japanese price growth gradually ticks up. The overnight 4.3% figure for Tokyo core CPI represents a four-decade high, with the nationwide figures likely to follow on. The chart below highlights how USDJPY has been heavily correlated with the now tightening gap between US and Japanese inflation. However, it is more evident when shifting that inflation differential forward by seven-months. That close correlation highlights the potential for further downside as long as prices continue to trend in a similar manner. Source: ProRealTime Looking at the daily chart, the recent rebound has taken price up towards the top-end of a descending channel and Fibonacci resistance. This highlights the bearish pattern that has been playing out, with lower highs and lower lows in place in recent months. Unless we see price rise through trendline and 134.77 resistance, another turn lower looks likely for this pair. Source: ProRealTime
    • @MongiIG Hi - You recently covered Long NICKEL Trading the Trend and A. Rudolf did this morning but I see it is Closing only. Please clarify, Thanks D600
    • At the expire date IG sell/buy price is 93.8/94.95 and Bloomberg price is 92.12 Assume I bought at 100.0 If I close the trade myself I lose (100-93.8) = 6.2 If the trade expires I lose (94.95-93.8) + (100-92.12) = 1.15 + 7.8 = 9.03 Is that right?
