I have several italian bond, and I’m looking for a guide about how to handle it.
I added manually my Bond, and after that, under “Securities accounts” I "bought the amount of my bond.
The bonds are purchased in multiples of one thousand (quantity) euros but the market value is loaded into the portfolio. So, I divided the market value by the the bond price to compute the “quantity”.
To add the “coupons” I used “Add Dividend” and I have to dived the coupon by the number of bond to spread the coupon on all quantity.
I don’t know if this is the correct approch.
Furthermore, since I use PP only for my investment, the “Deposit Account” is alway negative.
How can configure PP only to manage investments?
Thank for the help!
If Italian bonds don’t have any major special features (I don’t think so), treat them like any other bonds.
I have bonds. My broker gives prices in this format
'date' => '2022-02-01',
'nominal' => '1000',
'close' => '95.5',
'low' => '90.5',
'high' => '96.568'
Is it possible to somehow enter the price as a percentage so that it is calculated with a nominal value?
Instead of cash reserves have bought some Short term US government bonds, in this case ISIN US91282CAF86 (WKN A281D6).
Is there a way to follow those within portfolio performance and enter bonds with respective accrued interest ?
I’m using the tool out of Germany, main currency is Euro, running currency risk on purpose.
I am trying to record a coupon payment I receive every 6 months from owning bonds (regular bonds, not ETFs). Can you help me identify the transaction type? When I click the security it gives me option to buy/sell/dividend/tax/tax refund/stock split.
How do I put (in a new instrument) the maturity date of a bond (bond maturity)? I can’t find the field in the tab
Use “Delivery (Inbound)” instead of “Buy”, and “Delivery (Outbound)” instead of “Sell”. But the coupon (in the workaround as dividend) is posted to the account. If you don’t want this money in PP, you have to make a withdrawal afterwards.
