The 'cumulative P&L (profit and loss)' is a return-oriented indicator which presents how many FOOTBID coins you effectively won or lost in the platform until a given moment.

The main contributor for this indicator is usually the individual profit or loss from players' shares sold (i.e. sale price discounted of any transfer fees minus the purchase price). Other sources of income or cost are also considered, such as dividends, pay-outs, performance prizes and penalties.

For this calculation, all deposits, withdrawals and coin offerings are disregarded, as well as any investments not closed (i.e. player's shares not yet sold).

A user's performance is calculated through the sum of two key indicators: (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.
