Your Equities Visualization

Underneath, you'll find a visualization of your equities' performance right now. Click anywhere in this area to expand the graphic visualization and learn more. The size of the circles represents the size of your holding in each company. Use the graphic for a quick understanding of the one-day performance of your investments. We hope you'll see a lot of green circles.

Performance Tables

Next, you'll see performance tables for your stocks and ETFs and, below that, funds. Click on any column heading to change the table and find more detailed information about each category. Click on the smaller column headings to sort the table by that column. Click on the arrow at the far right of each row to reveal a menu. Here you can view your transactions for each investment, buy and sell shares, or delete their holding.
