Once you set up your portfolio, an important metric is your Profit/Loss, which is displayed on the portfolio tracker page both on the web and mobile app.

CoinStats offers four options for Profit/Loss for you to choose, such as All-Time, 24 Hours, Last Trade, and Current Holdings.

Web

Go to the Portfolio Tracker tab and click on the three dots as shown in the screenshot below. You can switch to a different Profit / Loss option by clicking on your preferred one from the dropdown list.

Mobile

  • Go to the Portfolio tab.

  • Click on the three dots under the chart as shown on the screenshot

  • Select the Profit/Loss option you wish to switch to.

Below you can find more detailed on information on how every Profit/Loss option is calculated.

All Time P/L

This option calculates your all-time P/L for a coin by considering all 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 P/L

This option calculates your P/L by considering only the holdings you own right now.

If we retake 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 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 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.
