it seems this happens with allot of brokers specifically for individual bond holdings. i have a few thoughts as to why this occurs, but does anyone know why on the last day of the month if you logged into your account and looked at the real time values of your bond holdings as of the market close versus looking at the monthly account statement you get via PDF or paper, why the values are always different? your total account value of bond holdings could be off anywhere from 6%-12% between the two mediums. on a larger size account that is a huge difference.
