Book cost

Hi

 

I've recently signed up, set  up a share dealing account, and have had my existing share portfolio transferred in. But the transferred shares have all come across with a book cost of zero. Is there a way to update the book cost so that I can track actual profit/loss?

 

Thanks!

Also, is there a way to click through (or otherwise easily navigate) from a share you're looking at in the platform page to see more information about it. e.g. I'm looking at trending shares and I notice someone like GSK has something happening - can I easily find navigate from there to detailed research on GSK - stuff like EPS, Yield, Broker ratings etc.

 

Thanks!

Hi - you should be able to use the below to edit book cost. We don't set this when it's transferred from an alternative broker, because we don't get told the value you bought these shares at. You would therefore have to go through your prior records and edit these in. I appreciate it can be a bit of a pain, but this is the only method.

You can also get share news via the 'Market Data' icon next to this drop down option. You may need to turn this on in the top right hand corner via the Cog. I hope this helps.

    • Summary: Still expecting another low for indices, the current move up part of a corrective rally. Normally I look for indices lead from stocks, however some stocks are displaying strength and some weakness so this mix bag is showing up in the Nasdaq 100 pattern as a probable wave four triangle at the current low.

    • A lot of transformation is happening to BNB at the moment with the integration of bitcoin lightning network and Optimism especially with opBNB birth but that has not reflected in users confidence primarily because of the many negativities surrounding the platforms operations in North America and Australia. BGB on the other is gaining traction and value because a lot of investment is going into the development of the ecosystem recently with the injection of $100M and also improved partnership deals
    • I know we still have a lot to do to attract massive crypto adoption but steps like those taken by Binance and bitget in the wake of what happened to FTX is commendable in righting the wrongs of the lapses and loopholes that exist pre-FTX saga. But more still needs to be done to restore confidence to the level it was pre-2020 bear market like consistent regulatory framework and regular security updates by crypto platforms
