The Difference between Equity & Balance - Deepstash

The Difference between Equity & Balance

If your account is “flat” or does NOT have any positions open, then your Balance and Equity are the SAME.

But if you do have open positions, this is when the Balance and Equity differ.

  • The Balance reflects your profit/loss from closed positions (realized P/L).
  • The Equity reflects the real-time calculation of your profit/loss. The Equity takes into account both open & closed positions (Unrealized P/L).

This means that when you’re looking at your Balance, it is NOT the actual real-time amount of your funds.
