Measure Personal Portfolio Performance

Vince 5 years ago updated by OSV Support 5 years ago 5

Can we have a portfolio tracker that calculates Time-weighted and Dollar-weighted Returns using Industry Standard Calculation Methodologies with those specified in the Global Investment Performance Standard, or "GIPS" standard.


@Vince we are working on this. We've got all the calculations ready to go and implementing the front section to make it look nice and pretty.

that's fantastic Jae. I came across an issue that I faced with Morningstar's portfolio monitoring service (I'm not sure if you have used them before), that I want to share with you. Say if a Company was bought out and no longer was listed on an exchange, it would get dropped from my performance numbers because it's no longer in the database. I thought this was a gross oversight, especially for a Company like Morningstar. On a side note, the performance report you can generate as a PDF for the portfolio through Morningstar is quiet nice, (which I look forward to having here as well).

But I do have to admit that getting the calculations is difficult. So many different variables. The first version isn't going to be perfect. We'll be adjusting and updating as we find better ways.

Jae, a couple of things to note. And BTW great job on the update :)

1. I can't add stocks that have merged or no longer trading in the performance. We should be able to include historical performance regardless of M&A.

2. Commission price doesn't get carried over when you add a transaction, you have to scroll up and input it again.

3. When inputting the date you have to click twice in order for you to be able to type

4. Performance graphs don't have option to provide annual measures and some of my 2017 transactions are not showing up on the graph

5. Lastly, how do I input option activity?



1) we don't display non-trading stocks. Just makes things way too messy.

2) commissions are entered manually as it could differ for each transaction. E.g. when I use interactive brokers, my commission costs are based on per shares sold, not per transaction.

3) will get it updated

4.1) chart view, we'll be improving.
4.2) what transaction dates are not showing up? Chart performance calculations are updated EOD. Not live.

5) No options support. We dont have options data and to tracking the many scenarios required is outside the scope.
