daily change numbers are wrong


Recommended Posts

I mentioned it a few years ago and got the response that IG is doing it the correct way.

However, today is a fine example when the daily change in the dashboard is completely wrong, because it is based on the closing price vs opening price, rather than yesterdays closing price:

LPD went down 7.4% today and every other source agrees with that yet the IG dashboard says 0% change? How come?

Interesting, but which IG dashboard has 0%, the chart says -7.49% but is showing no candle at all for yesterday (0%)?

That's a screenshot from my dashboard yesterday after market close. It states the price as 2.5c, which is in agreement with other sources.

The same today, the IG dashboard fo my account shows LPD +3.85% (or 0.1c up) with a closing price of, wait: 2.5c ! Hmmm, that's the same as yesterday's closing price.

I see this market has gone 'closing trades only', seems to be very low in liquidity.

I'm not sure how liquidity would affect the math. IG and every other bank has a closing price, but it seems IG is using the opening price to determine the daily change. This leads to reporting different numbers compared to other banks at the end of the trading day.  It's not just this stock.
