When you've already did setup your portfolio, one of the most important values is your Profit Loss shown in portfolio both on web app and mobile apps.

CoinStats allows you to change portfolio Profit Loss calculation between 4 options here.

All Time

This option calculates your all-time profit loss for a coin by taking into consideration all of your transactions.

For example,

You bought 1 BTC for $1000

You sold 1 BTC for $2000

You bought 1 BTC for $5000

You bought 1 BTC for $9000

Now BTC price is $10000 (and you own 2 BTC)

Your All-time P/L will be 10000 - 5000 + 10000 - 9000 + 2000 - 1000 which is $7000

Current Holdings

This option calculates your P/L by taking into consideration only the holdings which you own right now. If we take the previous example again

You bought 1 BTC for $1000

You sold 1 BTC for $2000

You bought 1 BTC for $5000

You bought 1 BTC for $9000

Now BTC price is $10000 (and you own 2 BTC)

Your Current Holdings P/L will be 10000 - 5000 + 10000 - 9000 = $6000 because you own only 2 BTC now.

Last Trade

This option calculates your P/L by taking into consideration ONLY your last trade. It is very useful to track your last position for each coin. Again, if we take the previous example.

You bought 1 BTC for $1000

You sold 1 BTC for $2000

You bought 1 BTC for $5000

You bought 1 BTC for $9000

Now BTC price is $10000 (and you own 2 BTC)

Your Last Trade P/L will be 10000 - 9000 = $1000 because your last trade was buying 1 BTC for $9000

24 Hours

24 hours profit loss simply calculates your coin balance change during the last 24 hours. It takes the 24h change of the coin and "multiples" it by how much you own
