The 'portfolio value change' represents the variation (positive or negative) that your investment in player portfolio has suffered if the current market price [FAQ 4.12] of the shares you own is considered (instead of their purchasing cost).
The current market value of your portfolio (i.e. the expected gross income if you'd sell all shares at the Market) can be calculated by summing up the 'investment in player portfolio' indicator [FAQ 2.9] and the 'portfolio value change'.
The total value of your assets is displayed on the small dashboard on the navbar, as the largest sized figure, next to your name. It is the result of summing up your liquidity and the current market value of your portfolio (both these figures are also displayed on the navbar on the line below, so that you are always aware of your holdings).
For a deeper dive, you can get to the value of your holdings by adding your 'coins available for investment' [FAQ 2.8] to your 'investment in player portfolio' [FAQ 2.9], duly incremented or reduced by the 'portfolio value change' [FAQ 2.10].
In any case, please note that the current market value of your portfolio is an estimate which considers the latest market price for each player. If market conditions change, you may not be able to sell the intended shares at that price.
Yes. On the 'Change' column of the ' My Players' section you can see your players' total value change (since his shares were bought) both in absolute and percentual figures, as well as the average change per share.
To see the total change in value of your portfolio you may use the Dashboard, namely through the 'portfolio value change' card [FAQ 2.10].
For simplicity, the main performance indicador in FOOTBID is the current value of all assets held by a given user [FAQ 2.11].
This indicator considers both coins available and current market value of the players in the portfolio and it is displayed on the respective user's row or card in the Network.
As an alternative measure for performance, focused instead on the returns obtained and expected in the platform, you may consider the sum of two key indicators available in the user's detail page: (i) 'total portfolio change' and (ii) 'overall profit or loss' in the platform.
(i) 'Total portfolio change' represents the difference between the current price of the shares held on the user's portfolio and the amount initially invested on them [FAQ 2.10]. This value may be negative if the shares have mostly lost value since your initial investment.
(ii) 'Overall profit or loss' represents how many FOOTBID coins a user effectively won or lost in the platform so far [FAQ 2.12]. These include, for instance, the sale of a player's share as well as dividends, pay-outs or performance prizes received as a reward for the user's investment performance.
The number on the right hand side of your name is your 'total value of your assets' [FAQ 2.11], which is composed by (i) 'coins available for investment' and (ii) 'portfolio value'.
The 'coins available for investment' represents your currently available cash balance, including any dividends or paybacks you have already received from your investments [FAQ 2.8].
The 'portfolio value' represents the current value of your investments in players. Please note that the current value of each player is calculated through their latest price on the Market [FAQ 4.12] and considers both the initial 'investment in player portfolio' [FAQ 2.9] and the 'portfolio value change' [FAQ 2.10].
The and icons represent any positive or negative changes on the value of your portfolio considering all of your ongoing investments.
