  1. Hi there, Firstly, clients need to have enough funds (cash balance) on the account before any positions could be opened. The equity is the difference between the funds and P/L. If the equity is lower than the margin requirement, the available funds will be below zero and the account would be on margin call. In this situation, clients won't be able to withdraw funds and the positions become at risk of being closed. Funds do not change by opening new positions. Before any positions being closed, the funds would be the same amount as well until any profit or loss are realised. In short, funds
  2. Hi, Welcome to IG community. We take the number of shares x the executed price. This is designed to show the real P/L based on the buy and sell price to avoid any potential confusion. The commission and stamp duty are shown on the trading ledger. We are more than happy to take your feedback and pass it on to the relevant team. Thanks, Claire
  3. Hi , when trading on a share dealing or an ISA account, if increasing the exposure for the same stock, the new position would be aggregated to the existing position. The new price would be a weighted average price of the total share prices for display. In terms of the profit you made, there won't be any difference, and therefore this simply comes down to a display decision. Let us know which view you prefer - we periodically collate feedback from clients and I'll make sure this gets passed back to our managers and dev team.
