Platform bug

Question

During the past few days the total figure for my current open positions is showing an incorrect sum. I have attached an example from this morning. Note that two of the open positions are in USA stocks (pre-market).

Thanks for this and apologies. I have escalated this to our incident team and technical trading support guys to review as soon as possible. I'll update accordingly.

Hi @WarrenMunger is this still an issue you are seeing with your positions?

Also is the total always wrong or only during certain times e.g. pre-market?

Cheers,

Will

I currently only have one open position in that account, so do not know whether the addition function is still incorrect.

Once I have opened more positions I will advise you if the problem is persisting..

I have opened new positions this morning. Unfortunately the software bug is still persisting. As the download indicates, the total figure is incorrect.

I do not know whether the problem is resolved when the US market opens.

This is a screenshot from the afternoon session, after the US market had opened. Assuming the $45 dollar profit converts to approximately £35, the total figure of £56.89 is incorrect.

Please could you advise me when this technical error will be rectified. The total sum for my open positions is still showing incorrect arithmetic.

The problem seems to occur in UK morning sessions when I have open positions in 'All Sessions' US stocks (i.e. 3M, ticker MMM).

This is quite a fundamental technical problem which should be solved ASAP.

@WarrenMunger we have not been able to replicate this issue in our test environment or work out why this is happening based on current info.

Please send me a screenshot by direct message of your entire platform when P&L is incorrect so we can see balances at the top also: https://community.ig.com/messenger/compose/

As mentioned previously, the problem arises when I have a position open in the US stock 3M (All sessions), stock symbol: MMM. 

Did the software team test that scenario? Before the market opens it has an unusually wide spread for a large market cap. stock. There are also occasional instances when the sell price for MMM is shown as $0.01 (it only lasts 1-2 seconds but the software error is reflected in the profit/loss total).

An example of the strange price pre-market quote for 3M (MMM).

@WarrenMunger I have asked our Shares Desk to fix the incorrect ask price, thanks for letting me know.

Yes I tested this myself and P&L total was correct. It will help if you can send me a message showing your entire platform and balances when total is incorrect.

    • this probably should have been ignored, but IMHO it was a new low.  obviously jlz tried to help someone here, and referred to others to add emphasis to a point.  I'm writing this because I actually asked for support in my earlier response, and I'm very pleased I'm not the only one who reacted to this post thoughtfully, so I think it would be pretty weak if I didn't speak up here. That may make me look ridiculous, and like my tongue is now travelling through a bunch of cracks, but I don't give a **** (like I think you would not either).    I'm actually surprised that you @dmedin  left it to this statement - usually you're significantly more effective in warning people of the hazards we face as retail punters IMHO - I think you definitely had stronger moments. you know what I would find useful:  having a separate, focused thread for insults  - I'm sure by now the respective targets wouldn't mind (to not again say not give a ****), and other discussions could become - let's say "leaner". I genuinely think I got a lot of valuable insights from many of your posts here, and I highly appreciate the honest feedback, and I also believe you have good intentions. I don't know about any history between you, jlz, THT, and Caseynotes.  I further think you play an important role here in this forum and I look forward to more productive discussions with you. But the post quoted above was a new low.
