Profit / Loss

This report monitors profit or loss resulting from the trading during a selected period and with any instrument. The filter serves to specify a required range of value dates, a grouping kind, to select all instruments or only one instrument for drawing up the report.

When generating the report, a profit and loss in different currencies are converted into USD at current rates. Therefore, if for some value date, there are rests in currencies other than USD on an account, the profit and loss for this day will change with the changing currency rates. When calculating a profit or loss, all deals except Deposit and Withdrawal are taken into account.

You can sort the data as you need it. Just click on the header of the column desired. The second click on the same column sorts the values in descending order.
