The Portfolio manager gives you access to all things related to portfolios. The manager is broken up into three sections. The upper section left contains the list of portfolios. The lower left section contains a list of actions that can be performed on portfolios, along with a link to each associated action. The main window on the right loads the details of the selected portfolio from the portfolio list.
The screenshot below highlights these three sections along with the buttons going across the top of the main window which gives you access to portfolio tools and portfolio related actions. For more information on the Portfolio tools, please see our Portfolio Help.
The top left panel in which displays the list of the portfolios has the ability to be widened so you can see the detail of the portfolios. As seen in the screenshot below when you move the cursor over the right side of the panel the cursor will change and this is when you can widen the panel.
The expanded panel displays the last trade in the portfolio, the change in $ and %, as well as the value and total gain of the portfolio as seen in the screenshot below.
The main window in the portfolio manager displays the details of the portfolio under three tabs, Allocations, Positions and Transactions. More details follow on each below.
The Allocations tab gives you the breakdown of the portfolio by Assets, Sectors and Regions. These tables show you the percentage breakdown of your portfolio.
Please note if you own ETF’s, the ETF holdings are broken out and factored into their proper categories. So for example, if you only owned SPY (the S&P 500), you would still get a breakout of the SPY ETF in all three allocation tables; Assets, Sectors and Regions.
These tables display the benchmark column as well and you are able to compare your portfolio to the Benchmark listed. By default it has S&P 500 index listed but you can change this and enter any ETF, Fund, Index, or Portfolio. See the screenshot below where you can start typing into the Benchmark box and it will start displaying a list of available items that can be added.
The Positions view allows you to see your portfolio holdings for the last date or a date in the past. Please note our portfolios are position based rather transactions. This means when we infer the transactions (trades) from the position changes rather than inferring positions from a set of transactions (trades).
The Transactions view allows you to see all your changes in portfolio. You can look at the transactions after a specific date and you can filter on a specific holding to see the history for that particular ticker.
