Why is the average buy price (ABP) not shown for my holdings?


There might be a few stocks for which we don’t get the average buy price while fetching your holdings from the broker. Therefore, you can only see the number of shares that you hold for those stocks. However, you can add the average buy price on the holdings tab of the portfolio page manually. This will populate your invested amount and P&L. If any of your held stocks don't have average buy price entered, your portfolio's Invested Amount and P&L will not be calculated


Why should I update the average buy price for my holdings?


Updating the average buy price is necessary to analyse your portfolio. Adding ABP helps you:


  1. See your invested amount
  2.  See the profit/loss (P&L) associated with that stock and the portfolio as a whole
