To navigate to the Cash Movements summary: Account > P/L Analysis > Cash Movements.
The Cash Movement analysis shows how the changes in the Cash Balance have occurred. It shows the breakdown of cash inflows and outflows, within a given reporting period. The Total Cash Movements are the sum of cash movements within a given reporting period, excluding cash balance currency movements. The Total Cash Movements are thus affected by realised P/L, other bookings and the sum of cash transfers in the period.
The Cash Movement summary can be read as:
- Date - the date when the booking transaction occurred
- Booking type - the description of the transaction affecting the cash balance e.g. commission, share amount
- Instrument - only relevant for security-related transactions that affect the cash balance. All non-security related transactions are marked as 'Non instrument'
- Amount - the total amount by which a booking affects the cash balance
