Open Positions

This section shows all open positions sorted by asset class, then currency, then symbol. It summarizes totals in your base currency at the asset level, displaying this as a new total line. The Cost Basis, Closing value, and Unrealized PNL for positions in a non-base currency are converted to your base currency using the exchange rates that were in effect on the last day of your statement period. The Unrealized Profit or Loss calculated in this section is also used in the MTM Performance Summary section of your Activity Statement.

Details by symbol are expandable and collapsible for daily activity statement. To see more detail for a particular symbol, click the plus sign next to the symbol.

Note: This section appears in the Default Statement and Realized Summary Default Statement.

Wash Sales

For lots that have been adjusted for a loss disallowed, the code LD will appear in the Code column. For other types of lots, nothing will be displayed in the Code column. In the Open column, the holding period time is displayed instead of the open time. For default lots they are the same; for lots that have been adjusted for a loss disallowed, the holding period will be the date and time of the original lot. For the loss disallowed lots, the cost basis has been adjusted by the amount disallowed (also cost price).
