Mark-to-Market Performance Summary

This section shows profit and loss (P&L) by asset class and underlying, as well as the time-weighted rate of return for the statement period.

Mark-to-Market (MTM) profit and loss shows how much profit or loss you realized over the statement period, regardless of whether positions are open or closed. Opening and closing transactions are not matched using this methodology. MTM calculations assume all open positions and transactions are settled at the end of each day and new positions are opened the next day. MTM calculations are split for purposes of simplification: calculations for transactions during the statement period, and calculations for positions open at the beginning of any day.

To compute the Time Weighted Rate of Return, we use a time-weighted average calculation method. This takes initial investment and cash flows, weighting each cash flow for its time period, and computes a return rate for the statement period. For an example of how this figure is calculated, see Time-Weighted Method#3: The Microsoft Excel Way.

Field Descriptions

The data is grouped by asset classes.

Column Description
Symbol The symbol of the position.
Prior Quantity The previous day's quantity held in the account.

Prior Price The previous day's closing price of the position.

Mark-to-Market Profit and Loss
Position MTM profit and loss for each position. For Forex positions, this includes the FX Translation on cash balances and positions.
Transaction MTM profit and loss for each trade.

Other The total amounts of dividends, P/L, withholding tax, bond interest (coupon and accrued) and CFD borrow fees.
Total A summation of transaction, prior open, corporate action, commissions and dividends.
Other Fees The total amount of other fees accessed to the account.
Time Weighted Rate of Return Time-Weighted Rate of Return (TWR) measures the percent return produced over time independent of contributions or withdrawals. TWR eliminates the impact of the timing of inflows and outflows and isolates the portion of a portfolio's return that is attributable solely to the account's actions.
