Book cost


Recommended Posts

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.

    • Yeah I can see that - from experience if the 50% level is going to work it'll go through in 1-3 attempts at most which means you can afford a tight stop, but you can use the swing low point, whatever suits you
    • I guess i do it because i see the low point as relative safety and assume the market won't go through it, but this can make the distance from my entry to the low point quite large and hence potential R smaller.  I'll take a look back to see how a % of ATR might have faired. cheers
