Latent gain, Today gain

  • The Gain, Gain today and Latent gain information in the application do not take brokerage fees into account. Brokerage fes are deducted from your portfolio amount after each order executed.
  • Warning : The Gain, Gain today and Latent gain information in the application are estimations calculated by the platform and not binding. Only the information in your account statements are binding.

Latent gain

The "Latent gain" of a position corresponds to the unrealized gain of an open position (not yet closed) :

  • For buying positions : (Position open price* - Bid price**) × Quantity
  • For selling positions : (Ask price** - Position entry price*) × Quantity

* If you opened a position with several orders, the "unit cost" is used to calculate gains.

** If you don't have access to best bid / ask data in the order book, the last price is used instead.


The "Latent gain" information indicated in the top part of the portfolio corresponds to the cumulative latent gain of all your open positions.

Gain today

"Today's gain" on an instrument corresponds to the cumulative gain or loss on all transactions on the instrument (current and closed) since the beginning of the trading day. It does not take into account brokerage fees :

  • For buying positions :
    • Open the same day and still open: (Position entry price* - Bid price**) × Quantity
    • Open the same day and closed: (Position entry price* - Position closing price) × Quantity
    • Open a previous day and still open: (Previous day's closing price - Bid price**) × Quantity
    • Open a previous day and closed: (Previous day close - Position price) × Quantity
  • For selling positions
    • Open the same day and still open: (Ask price** - Position entry price*) × Quantity
    • Open the same day and closed: (Position close price - Position entry price*) × Quantity
    • Open a previous day and still open: (Ask price** - Previous day close) × Quantity
    • Open a previous day and closed: (Position close price - Previous day close) × Quantity

* If you opened a position with several orders, the "unit cost" is used to calculate gains.

** If you don't have access to best bid / ask data in the order book, the last price is used instead.


The "Gain today" information at the top of the portfolio corresponds to your gain on all instruments.

  • The information Gain, Today's gain or latent gain in the application are calculated directly in the platform and are not binding. Only the information in account statements is binding.

    • for positions open for more than one year
    • for the cases where you increase then reduce a position size (there are 2 methods to calculate gains in this case)
    • when an instrument has a dividend payout, a name change, split, reverse split or any other corporate event (in this case gain information may be incomplete until the application takes the corporate event intoaccount)
    • when you don't have real-time data access for an instrument on which you have an open position



Impact of the exchange rate on your positions in a "foreign" currency

When you trade an instrument in a different currency than your base currency, during the time your position is open, its exposed to exchange rate fluctuations.

So, if we want to calculate the P&L in the base currency, we need to take 2 elements into account:

  • Gross gain and losses
  • Evolution of the exchange rate between the currencies, between the moment the position is opened and closed

This information is calculated in the portfolio window in the platform. To display it, place your mouse over the information icon for the concerned position:
