Had a bit of a search but didn’t find anything obvious so apologies if this has been requested before.
I wondered whether it might be possible (and whether others might find it desirable) to have an at-a-glance display of the number that comes from the following:
(Account Value - Total Deposits) ÷ Total Deposits × 100
So in other words total return on deposits including dividends, including profit or loss from sold positions, everything as a % of initial deposits.
Portfolio return is nice but gets distorted whenever you buy or sell something at either a profit or a loss. Also doesn’t factor in dividends. I personally would regard the proposed thing (overall return?) as a fairer reflection of my progress.
Obviously I’m capable of doing this maths myself and I’m not suggesting that this should be any sort of priority for 212. But since this is the place to post ideas and so on, I thought perhaps I might pop this here to see how others felt.
