Build a portfolio
Please note that the portfolio tool is available only to Plus and Enterprise subscribers. Also, for more information about the difference between programs an portfolios see this topic.
Creating a Portfolio
To build a new portfolio, click the “New Portfolio” link in the left sidebar. Then choose a type of portfolio you are going to build. You can create either hypothetical portfolio or tracker portfolio.
1. Portfolio Instruments
It is possible to combine any number of programs and other instruments in your portfolio tearsheet. Feel free to add stocks, mutual funds, exchange-traded funds, indices or managed futures from an external source. The selection of these instruments is really easy and allows you to choose from thousands of automatically updated securities.
1. To add a new instrument to the portfiolio, choose what kind of asset class you want to add
2. In the first column, write name of a stock (ndex, etc.) or its ticker
3. Set investment amounts and leverage (if available) to get allocation weights and click “Add to Portfolio”
2. Portfolio Calculation
Compound – We first calculate VAMIs (using notional amounts) for each program contained in the portfolio. Then we sum up and create a portfolio VAMI (using cash levels) from which we then calculate monthly portfolio numbers. It means those numbers are not just simple averages derived from individual program numbers.
Fixed – Allocations to programs are fixed (reset to their initial levels every month).
3. Edit Portfolio
