Hi - I'm talking about CFDs in this instance. I track my share trading with Sharesight and have all the data I need there and in your statements. (I'd love Sharesight and IG to get together so I could track my CFDs there also) I'd like to get the data from 01 October 2015 thru to whatever date you cut over. I can currently see back to a closed trade on Fortescue Metals Group on 20/09/2017 and no further. Can you email me my historical data on the email address you have linked for this account. I track my CFD trades the way the IG P&L report does it, where all costs associated with a trade are included in the report. I just cut and paste from your data into my spreadsheet. I have most of the data I'm requesting, but am attempting to do my tax return and don't have all of it, I've missed one or two when updating my spreadsheet. Will the new system keep this historical data long term, or do I need to download it and store it myself on a regular basis? Thanks for helping out. James.
Team I wrote to the Helpdesk a few days ago about the historical P&L data and have just had a response saying that is no longer available before September 2017. I'm not sure if that means you have reset, or if you are only going to make short term data available for this point forward. Either way, this is very disappointing. That data is the only way I know of to reconcile costs with a particular trade. I've always been able to download all my historical P&L data going back years. Being cut off from that data is a real problem, particularly when, as far as I know, there was no notice. Suggestions: 1. Review this change and reverse it. This is important data for tracking performance, and at tax time. 2. Alternatively, include the data in the daily statements so the same information is available (i.e. provide information about borrowing costs, interest, and commissions for each closed trade). 3. Come up with another way for customers to match specific charges and fees to a specific trade. Thanks James.
