Today's P/L

Definition: the cumulative profit and loss from the close of the previous trading day to the present time


Today's P/L of a Position = (Today's Market Value - Yesterday's Market Value) + (Today's Selling Value - Today's Buying Value)

Today's Market Value is the real-time market value of the position; Yesterday's Market Value is the previous closing price for the regular trading hours multiplied by yesterday’s position size.

Today's P/L of an Account = Sum of Today's P/L of All Positions
