## Return % Calculation

Percentage return measures the percentage gain or loss on an asset or portfolio relative to its starting value.

In the example above, the investor earned a $1,250 total dollar return on a $5,000 investment. To calculate the total return in percentage, simply divide the total gains ($1,250) by the starting value ($5,000) = 25%.

Total percent return can be a better indicator of return on investment because it shows growth relative to the initial investment.

## Day P/L %

## Closed P/L

The bot's P/L for all closed positions.
