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.

    • 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'
    • I wonder what Britain's cannabis policy will be with a big Conservative majority and we've kicked out all the foreigners and sold the NHS to Donald J. Trump ... Do you think Priti 'Bring back hanging' Patel cares about those kids that need medical marijuana, let alone people who want to peacefully smoke in the privacy of their own home?  No chance
    • I like the fact that the analysts focus purely on money and profitability without getting too political.  That's what we want to see.  (After all, why are any of us here except to make money ...)
