Property Value

Type: Price


This value is the average price per share or contract for the shares or contracts that currently make up the position. If the position is closed, this value will be zero.

This value differs from the GrossEntryPrice in that trades which reduce the position size can have an effect on this value. For example, consider a position where 200 shares are bought for $10 each. Then, 100 shares are sold at $11 each. Finally, 100 shares are bought at $12 each. In this case, the gross entry price would be $10.67, while the entry price would be $11.00.
