I have no idea how this information could be handy, but I was interested in the amount of money being put into WiseAlpha on a day to day basis net of withdrawals. As looking at each bond and trying to remember where it was yesterday is a little bit of a pain, I thought I would track it. I have been doing it for a week or so now and thought others may find it mildly interesting. I plan to keep doing it and see where the data takes me.
Hi. Just to give you the heads up, over the last couple of weeks a number of 'completed' note issues have been reopened; KIR Group is a case in hand.
Subsequently this will affect the assumed sales visavis an accurate opening and closing figure. Similarly we cannot with all certainty know how many notes have been added by way of the relisting of the completed issue.
Also to keep in mind is the fact the 'Total invested' does not necessarily, (as far as I am aware,) reflect the total notes sold to the public. It also contains the reserve that is held for those that opt for the reinvest option when the interest payment is made as well as notes for the opening of the completed issues. For example I think that last week's HY notes issued for general sale for AMC, D&G and Paragon was not 100k but give or take a couple of thousand they were 75k, 50k and 75k respectively.

As this was just something I was a little curious about, I decided trying to take into account the variables you described was a little too much like hard work. The numbers I have recorded therefore is just the value currently still up for grabs of each bond. So I just add up all the numbers beside 'Available' and give the total. The main reason I highlight when new bonds come onto the market is just to show that it wasn't someone selling off a bunch of their holding. So the number I post doesn't relate to total bought/sold of the bonds over the market, it just shows the maximum you could buy at this moment (normally about 6 pm when I get in from work)
We keep an aggregate figure of investments funded on the homepage and update it every couple of weeks (it'll be automated soon). Because we have a market - we have a number of users who want to sell and switch into other bonds when they come on and we also keep a reserve for re-investment that we sometimes sell to just keep a particular bond stocked until we can get some more so availability fluctuates depending on a number of things. Going forward we may create automated alerts when a particular bond becomes available again in case people missed out the first time
More bonds on their way...
