Viewing FIFO based Purchase Price of Holdings

Our customers often face the problem of how Historical Purchase prices of holdings can be seen from the Back Office. This can be done by utilising the SAMCO STAR Family Back Office utility.
The following steps should be carried out

  • Go the FAMILY ADMIN Menu Option in the SAMCO STAR Back Office

  • Enter your own client code and click on “Add Client”. If you desire to watch the reports of your family and friends, you can also add your other family members Client Codes with SAMCO who shall be sent a request.

  • In accordance with the FIFO method, the purchase price of the last quantities purchased shall be visible in the Buy Average Price Column. For Eg. If you had bought 100 shares MCX at 900 on 7th April and another 100 at 848.88 on 8th April and sold 100 shares on 8th April at 901, the for the pending quantity of 100, the last price of 848.88 shall be considered since it is assumed that the latest quantities remain unsold and open.
  • In case you have multiple clients, you shall be able to see client wise details in the once you select the “View” option.

Please note that in case the purchase of shares has been via an off market mode and not via market purchases with your SAMCO Trading account, the Purchase price of holdings shall be 0.
Happy Trading!
