Difference...



  • How can I find out the price I brought player at? I need to compare the price I brought him at compared to the price he's at at the minute.

    I've got to admit, I like to think I'm quite clued up when it comes to this sort of thing, but I'm really struggling to find the answer even after going through the academy.

    Thanks



  • The average cost is right there in your portfolio..

    Unless you mean what price were each individual shares you bought at different times?
    If so you'd hav eto go back through your trade history and see what you paid.



  • Yeah it's the second one. - the each individual share. I'll look through the trade history. I wasn't sure if it was marked on the portfolio somewhere.
    Thanks for the answer.

    There's a transaction history in your account settings, and a trade history too. These will give you what you're looking for.

    Or if you're a spreadsheet person, there's a .CSV file that you can download too to open in Excel or whatever you use. That's in the transaction summary.

    In future, you can get to these by clicking on this guy in the top right corner.

  • I always struggled with this so every time I buy shares or add a player I put him on the watchlist at the time so I can refer back. Not perfect but gives you a snap shot without having to trawl through the history.



  • The average cost in your portfolio is useful, but sometimes when I'm trying flip players for a profit I need to refer to the trade history.

    Say I bought 100 shares @ 50p and sometime later I bought another 100 @ 40p. My average price would be 200 share @ 45p.

    I might be happy to sell 100 @ 50p making a healthy 10% profit. FI will sell the oldest ones first.

    My portfolio will now show 100 shares @ average cost of 40p (not 45p), but I still need to sell the remaining shares @ 50p if I want a 10% profit. Without the Trade History, I might forget and sell too low.

    10% might not sound like much, but if I can flip for 10% profit after 2 or 3 days (or sometimes 2 /3 minutes) it is pretty good.
