 Hello

 

I would think some of thes eare fairly self-explanatory, but I'll have a stab:
Open positions
The current market value £ of all open trades
Book cost
how much you have spent/invested in shares currently
Profit / Loss
self-explanatory, the gain or loss on open positions
Funds
how much unused cash you have available to invest
Unsettled - credit
any monies owed to you
Unsettled - debit
any monies you owe
Reserved
if you have set a limit order the cash will be tied up here
Available to withdraw
the money you can immediately access
Total value
the total value of you account, so includes any positive or negative equity

help?

    • I don't think it would be a problem trading during the weekend. You can trade whenever you want.  I learned how to do it on the cryptoinformator website. The highest income is brought by bitcoin. When looking at the value of the current 55,000 dollars, of course, everyone is thinking about investing in it. Forecasts vary, and many believe that by the end of 2021, they would have surpassed 100,000 dollars. The growth is projected to be based on the fact that real-world payment flow stock markets are still burdened by the current pandemic but is also based on the increasing acceptance of BTC as legal tender ( PayPal is bringing this option, and bitcoin is also coming to Wall Street soon).
    • I played around with it (created two plots of the smallest viable K-32 size). While I'm farming this tiny amount now I've stopped plotting until pooling is introduced - since existing plots aren't going to be compatible with pooling. The cost of wearing out SSDs is high. You're effectively buying (via SSD wear) lottery tickets (the plots) with a chance of winning a lottery (by farming). Without pooling its unlikely small players will win. The "estimated time to win" is based on current network space that will probably rise at a very quick rate reducing your chance of winning exponentially.  Unless you're farming petabytes, using the rule of large numbers to take out the lottery element, its not worth the time of smaller farmers imho. It may be worthwhile when they introduce pooling.
    • Yeah, you can trade whenever you want.
