Do the profit and loss numbers on your account add up right?
It seems that I have apparently lost £1200 over the last two months but I'm sure that's not the case. Maybe half of that but not the whole lot. Anyone else had any issues with it?
No but yes!

If you have done a lot of buying/selling//withdrawing/depositing then this can often skew the figures.
Keep a tally of your net deposits then just subtract it from your portfolio value -
And also don't worry about the 7 day and 24 hour figures - think long term!

@Tom7471 it's garbage. Those P&L figures are all just based on current value and what you paid.
So if you sell a few shares that are green your P&L goes down (when in reality it hasn't changed).
You need to set up a spreadsheet if you want to keep track. I just have one that I update as im not fussed on daily/weekly profits, just my total profit at any given time. But you could run the below template every day and then have a variance of each bottom line figure.
so I just update the figures whenevrr I want a fresh total profit figure... but instead of refreshing I could run it at 9am every day as a copy paste job so I have a daily profit figure
Superb thanks guys. I knew it didn't make sense because my portfolio value hasn't gone down much. Say £200. I wasn't worried even if I had lost £1200 as I'm so excited for the season but I just thought they were skewed. I sold all of my zaha and Eddie nketiah at there peaks so that makes more sense.
@Vespasian32 be awesome if there was some kind of like automated/automatic spreadsheet you could download from somewhere as im super awful with number id never trust myself typing it in manually
