Dashboard Statistics

Dashboard Statistics

Your Whispertrades Dashboard includes configurable account and bot statistics at the top of the page. Some of these numbers come directly from your brokerage account, some come from Whispertrades bots, and some combine data from both. This page will explain what is behind each of the numbers.

Net Liquidation Value

This is the total value of your brokerage account. If you have more than one brokerage account connected to Whispertrades, this will show the total of all connected accounts.

Option Buying Power

This represents available option buying power in your brokerage account. If you have more than one brokerage account connected to Whispertrades, this will show the total available option buying power for all connected accounts.

Additionally, there is a percentage at the bottom right of this metric which represents the percentage of your available option buying power compared to your total account value (net liquidation value). This percentage is your option buying power available, not percentage utilized.

Notional Held

This is your total notional value held by Whispertrades bots only. It does not include notional held by other positions in your account that were created outside of Whispertrades.

The Notional Held number will offset short puts and calls for each symbol in your account. If you have bots that hold both short puts and short calls for the same symbol, the Notional Held figure will take the largest notional value of the two sides (puts and calls) and use that amount for this figure.

At the bottom right of the Notional Held box, you will see a number multiplier. This indicates the amount of leverage held by your bots when compared to your total account value (Net Liquidation Value). Again, this leverage factor only includes leverage used by Whispertrades bots and not from other positions in your account outside of Whispertrades.

Profit Open

This displays unrealized profit for all positions currently open by Whispertrades bots.

To the bottom right of the dollar amount is a percentage. This percentage is divided against your Net Liquidation Value, not the bot's max risk.

Profit Today

This displays realized and unrealized profit since market open for all positions currently open by Whispertrades bots.

To the bottom right of the dollar amount is a percentage. This percentage is divided against your Net Liquidation Value, not the bot's max risk.

Profit Year to Date

This displays year-to-date realized profit for all Whispertrades bot positions.

Dashboard Charts

The dashboard features two charts: the default chart showing your bot balance history over time, and the second showing return percentage from all bots against an underlying of your choosing.

Balance Chart

This chart is simply the sum of all profit that your bots have generated since your Whispertrades activity started.

Return % Chart

This chart displays total bot profits divided by net liquidation value of your brokerage account(s) connected to Whispertrades. This represents the percentage return your bots are generating for your brokerage account(s).

Updating Net Liquidation Value History

The Return % chart on your dashboard uses the Net Liquidation Value from your brokerage(s) account to determine total capital for the denominator of the percentage calculation. If you find that your net liquidation values for your brokerage account connected to Whispertrades are inaccurate or incomplete, you can download your balance history from your broker and then upload this file to your Whispertrades account to update the values for this chart.
