In my review of DEGIRO, I mentioned that something I really did not like was that it was not possible to see the total result of the position in the mobile application. The application is only able to display the daily result of each position of your portfolio. Personally, I do not really care about the daily variations of my portfolio. I am much more interested in the total results of my portfolio. This is what most long-term investors should care about.
However, I just found out it was, in fact, possible to see this information on the DEGIRO mobile application. It took me quite a while to figure out how to find this information. It is just not really intuitive. Or maybe, it is just me. But once you know it, it is really easy to use. Since it was not easy for me to find it, I am going to post my findings for all of you!
Total result in DEGIRO mobile application
First of all, start the mobile application and login to your account. Then, you can go to the Portfolio view. Here, you should be able to see the daily results of all the positions in your portfolio. Once you are in the portfolio view on the application, you should see something like this:
You can see the daily results of all the positions. If you press on a daily result, it then shows the total results of this position. For instance, after pressing on Vanguard Total World and Vanguard International High Dividend Yield, I can see their two total results:
This is really useful information and this is something that was missing for me. I am really glad I discovered this feature. It makes my life easier since I do not have to use the web application so much. I just wish it was a bit more obvious. But maybe it was obvious to most people ;)
I hope this tip can help some of you! Generally, I think that the total results are much more important than the daily results. If you are a long-term investor like me, you should not focus too much on daily results.
Maybe you already knew about this trick. But for me, it was not really intuitive to find it. I found it by chance by clicking by mistake. But now, it really makes my life easier. I almost never use the daily results anymore now!
Do you have any tip of that sort for using the DEGIRO Mobile application?
