Historical P&L Data

Recommended Posts

Team

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  - as  please let us know which data set you are looking for (share trading or CFD) and the specific dates you would like, and we can generate the reports here for you. Apologies about this method but hopefully this should resolve your issue.

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.

    • I think that was in reference to the different strategies as in a mean reversion system with smaller targets needs more trades than a trend following system that is longer term.
    • 'Trading only 50 times a year limits your P&L' 'Trading 500 times a year lets you exploit your edge' Pretty much goes against all professional wisdom on the subject of trading.  'The more you trade, the more you lose.'
    • Just listened to the Jack Schwagger podcast.  Typical BS: Stick to the rules and be disciplined! Except when it stops working - then change the rules! Know the market!  Limit your losses!  Analyse every trade - that will help prevent you losing!  But everyone loses throughout their career!  It's all about losing less frequently!  Blah blah blah ... In other words, 'To hell with this ... I'm going to get rich by writing a book instead'
