Managing Portfolio

Return to Overview

The 'View Portfolio' page provides you with a quick overview and summary of the overall performance of your portfolios, where you can view the status and profit or loss (P/L) positions of your paper and physical trades, which are automatically calculated for you!

To access, click 'Portfolio' from the navigation sidebar on the left, and click 'View Portfolio'.



Portfolio Licence(s)

The licences reflected in this page include those that you have purchased that are not assigned to others and those that have been assigned to you (you may view your licences in Assigned Licences). In this example, the user has a total of 5 Portfolio Licences (2 used) and can use the remaining 3 Portfolio licences to create 3 more portfolios.

Portfolio Hierarchy Tree Structure

You can easily manage and organise your portfolio(s) with the portfolio hierarchy tree structure situated on the left. You can use the 'Search' bar to search for keywords for relevant portfolio to be displayed.

You can simply drag-and-drop the portfolio(s) to change its ordering, and/or place one portfolio as a child of another portfolio, as well as delete it (by clicking the 'bin' icon). You may also click to expand the drop-down list (represented by a '+' icon) next to the portfolio to view its child portfolio(s) (if any). Simply click on any portfolio and its summary will be reflected in the table on the right. Clicking on the parent portfolio will display the combined summary details of its child portfolio, so you can have an overview of the overall performance of the sub portfolios.

Please note that to place a portfolio as a child (sub-portfolio) of a parent portfolio, the parent portfolio must not contain any trades. You will not be able to add trades into a parent portfolio as a parent portfolio is used to compute the overall performance of its sub-portfolios and must be left empty (no trades added) for this purpose.

In this example, Portfolio 'Team A' and 'Team B' are the parent portfolios, and the portfolios of their traders (Trader 1, 2, 3, 4) are the sub-portfolios. Clicking on the parent portfolios will display the overall performance of the traders (sub-portfolios), and clicking on each trader's portfolio will display their individual performance. To determine the overall performance of both teams, you can create another portfolio named 'Total', and drag-and-drop Portfolio 'Team A' and 'Team B' into it. The total performance of the portfolios will be reflected on the right.

Group Remove Member Enhancement for Portfolio

  • Old logic:

    • if a group member has been removed from group, if the member has portfolio data, the portfolios will be transferred to any member of the group, and portfolio’s status will become invalid, any licence from portfolio will be removed

  • New logic:

    • if a group member has been removed from group, if the member has portfolio data, the portfolios will be transferred to any member of the group

    • Changed part: if the portfolio is generated from member under free trial status (which means no linked licence), then the portfolios will still be valid. For the portfolios linked to licence, it will follow old logic


To recalculate your portfolio(s), go to Portfolio>View Portfolio page and tick the checkbox of the portfolio(s) and click 'Recalculate'. It will prompt you to choose a start date to select the earliest trade date to recalculate the trades from. If empty, the system will use the earliest possible trade date to perform recalculations. Kindly note that selecting an earlier start date may result in a longer duration for portfolio recalculation. All the data in the selected portfolio(s) will be recalculated and you may need to refresh the page to view the updates. Choosing to recalculate your parent portfolio(s) will auto recalculate the sub-portfolios.
