The Floating USD Gain/Loss column of the bitFORTUNE Automated Trading Summary Table indicates the current gain or loss of either the long or short positions currently active in trading as displayed in the Long & Short Positions Tables. The value is quoted in USD.
The value is calculated as the product of the percent variation from the total in long or short trading prior to any trade initiation and the current total. The value is floating since this value is approximate since the calculation is from currently active trades that upon resolution may have variance from this value due to market forces. Gains are expressed as a positive value and losses are expressed as a negative value.
The footer of the table contains a total for the Floating USD Gain/Loss column that is a sum of all row values.
This value is periodically updated automatically. If the value of the floating USD gain or loss since the last check:
- has no variance display black
- increases in value display green
- decreases in value display red
