 Hello

 

I would think some of thes eare fairly self-explanatory, but I'll have a stab:
Open positions
The current market value £ of all open trades
Book cost
how much you have spent/invested in shares currently
Profit / Loss
self-explanatory, the gain or loss on open positions
Funds
how much unused cash you have available to invest
Unsettled - credit
any monies owed to you
Unsettled - debit
any monies you owe
Reserved
if you have set a limit order the cash will be tied up here
Available to withdraw
the money you can immediately access
Total value
the total value of you account, so includes any positive or negative equity

help?
