Outstanding Physical Trade Deals Matrix

Return to Overview


The Outstanding Physical Trade Deals Matrix provides you with an overview of the types, outstanding quantity (*Value is more than 0, or value = 0 but unrealised P/L is not 0) and P/L of uncompleted/outstanding physical deals. You will be able to filter the data using start and end date, based on 'Contract Date'. This data is directly extracted from the table in the DEALS tab but only shows all deals that are TRUE under OPEN column in DEALS tab (which means that the deals are not closed yet and still have open positions). The difference is you cannot set the end date in DEALS tab (will use today as the end date), but can set any date as end date in the Outstanding Physical Trade Deals Matrix.

All your outstanding physical trades and their outstanding quantity, realised P/L, unrealised P/L and total P/L will be displayed. The rows are the various products in the portfolio while the columns indicate product information such as contract date, deal number, outstanding quantity, unrealised P/L, realised P/L and total P/L. 

You can click here to learn how to customise the table by arranging and filtering the columns based on your preference, and saving the table layout(s) as a template.

Also see Futures Contracts Codes for more information on exchange and month codes, if required.

Logic: If OPEN column is not TRUE (basically FALSE), it could be either the physical trade is not matched in terms of buy/sell or the title transfer date is not filled in yet.

Go to portfolio page, check portfolio Open Position table, we use two columns to double check

  • If outstanding qty is not 0.0, or open is true
    • sometimes you may see outstanding qty is 0.0 but open is true, it means buy and sell physical trades are closed/matched, but still have open positions because title transfer date/actual price is not filled in yet so user can use this to monitor their trades and remind them of any outstanding deals.
    • sometimes you may see outstanding qty is not 0.0, but open is false, it means bug


To access the quantitative model/report, click on 'Dashboard' from the navigation sidebar on the left. 

Select the model/report from the drop-down list and click 'Create'. Click on the 'Settings' button (gear icon) at the top right corner of the model to set up your model/report.

Sharing Model/Report/Dashboard

To share the model with your group members, click on the "Share" button next to the Title of the model followed by the email address of the group members you want to share it with. Once submitted, the model will appear in the Dashboard>Group Dashboard of the selected group members.

This is different from sharing individual or entire Dashboard models/reports, which allows any user who may or may not be users of MAF Cloud to access the individual model/entire dashboard via the shared web link (link will expire in 8 hours). In Group Dashboard, only group members can access the shared models/reports.

Group Rows

You may also group the rows (liken to the pivot table function in Microsoft Excel) to view the grouped data by dragging any column headers into the “row groups” section as highlighted:

The data in the table will be grouped according to your setting and you may drag multiple column headers into the “row groups” section to group them as necessary.
