Calculating Unrealized Profit and Loss (PnL)

By default, DAS calculates the unrealized profits and losses (PnL) relative to the Bid or Ask on the position compared to the average cost.  Long positions are calculated using the Bid while short positions use the Ask.

Traders may opt to change the way unrealized PnL is calculated by pegging it to the last price instead of the Bid/Ask.   To do this, go to the SETUP tab on the top of your DAS Platform then select Trading Settings and enable the setting called Use Last Price to Calculate Unrealized.
