General help

The customer portfolio is a tool for maintaining real or fiction portfolios. It consists of an Auto Portfolio where buys and sales through Netfonds are automatically added. In addition to this, you are able to create an unlimited amount of Model Portfolios, which you can update freely. The contents of the portfolios do not necessarily reflect real trade. The user is able to freely edit the contents of the auto portfolio. 

In certain cases, the user may need to manually update his or her Auto Portfolio. This mainly concerns cases where:

  • Securities have been transferred from another bank/broker
  • Dividends
  • New issues of shares
  • Options are outdated or redeemed
  • Mutual funds have been traded

All buys and sales in the portfolio tool are only registered internally in the portfolio, no orderes from the portfolio are sent to the stock exchange. It is only a fictional trade that is only viewable in this portfolio and on this page.

All values are given in NOK, while quotes are given in currency. Please note that the average price in currency is adjusted to the current currency rate. More precisely, the average price is the bid rate per security in currency, given today's currency rate, i.e. the price one needs to sell for today to break even with the current currency rate.



Manually adding buys, sales and other transactions

To manually add transactions in a portfolio, use the menu found under "Tools", choose "Customer Portfolio", then "Add a transaction" in the left menu. The menu will appear in the left column. 

Buy: Click "buy" in the left menu and add correct data for ticker, exchange, price, date and, optionally, commission. Click "update" when your are done. 

Sell: Click "sell" in the left menu and add date, amount, price and, optionally, commission for the correct ticker. Click update and you are done.

Deposit, withdraw, dividend and fee: These choices are used to maintain a fictional cash balance in the portfolio. Deposits and dividends increase the cash balance, withdrawing cash and fees decrease it. Add correct date/time, amount and an optional comment. Click "Add", and you are done. 

Split, reverse split: Use these if you have added a paper after a split/reverse split, but with trade date before the split/reverse split. For already existing securities in the portfolio, Netfonds automatically adds split/reverse split to the paper when it is registered in our central systems. Add ticker, exchange, adjustment ratio and an optional comment. Click "Add" when you are done.

Why do I have a negative balance in my portfolio?

Negative balances in the Auto Portfolio are usually a result of Netfonds' automatic registrations of sales in a security, but lacking registration of the bough security. This could be because:

  • Securities have been transferred from another bank/broker
  • Dividends from securities
  • New issues of shares

The solution is to add the missing buy transactions manually. See above.

I have purchased/sold securities with another broker, how do I add these transactions to the portfolio?

Add the buy/sell manually, as described in the above paragraph "Manually adding buys, sales and other transactions".

I have received new issues of shares, how do I add these?

Add them as buys with price/commission set as 0, and trade date set as the ex date of the emission. See the paragraph "Manually adding buys, sales and other transactions".

I have transferred my securities to another person, how do I remove them from my portfolio?

This means you have sold your securities and you need to add a sale to the portfolio. See the paragraph "Manually adding buys, sales and other transactions".

I have added wrong data to a buy/sale in the portfolio, how do I edit this?

Choose "Tools" in the main menu, then "Customer portfolio". Click "Edit" in the left menu. Here you can choose to sort entries after ticker, or you can search after the transaction you wish to edit. Click "Edit" after the transaction you wish to change. Add the correct data and click "Update". Go to "Overview" to see the results of your updated portfolio. 

I have transferred money to/from Netfonds and wish to include this in my Portfolio. How?

Transfers to/from Netfonds are automatically included in the auto portfolio. For model portfolios, or if there are missing cash transactions in the auto portfolio, you can add them manually, see the paragraph "Manually adding buys, sales and other transactions".

I have traded outdated options, but they are still in my portfolio. How do I remove them?

You need to add a sale with price/commissions set as 0 at the date they expired. How to add sales manually can be found in the paragraph "Manually adding buys, sales and other transactions".

Do sales and buys in my auto portfolio affect my VPS balance? 

Your VPS balance is not affected. A buy or sale that is added to your auto portfolio by Netfonds or the customer are not actual trades performed on the exchange, but reflect these transactions. To trade securities, you need to visit the Trading page.

Do I need to update the auto portfolio myself?

All actual trades performed via Netfonds are updated automatically in the auto portfolio when the contract trade note is sent. If you have traded with another broker/bank, received new issues of stocks or moved securities from a different account, you need to add these manually. See above for more information about how to do this. This portfolio aims to show the gain of your investments. However, you are free to edit it as you please. 

I want to add more portfolios under the main portfolio. How? 

The main portfolio is called Auto Portfolio at Netfonds. The Auto Portfolio is updated automatically with the trades performed via Netfonds. However, you are able to add more underlying portfolios. From the main menu, choose "Tools", then "Customer Portfolio". Click on "Model Portfolios" and add your new portfolio. If you have more than one portfolio, you will find a horizontal menu on top of each page (under the heading), where you can switch between the different portfolios.

How do I add a Split or Reverse Split?

Split transactions are added automatically to all affected auto portfolios at a split/reverse split. These transactions adjust the number and price of previous transactions so that the calculation of profit becomes correct. If it should be necessary to register a split manually, it is possible. Read how under "Manually adding buys, sales and other transactions".

Where can I find my real balance as it appears on VPS? 

Your real balance overview can be found under "My Account" then "Account Overview". This overview reflects your balance on VPS.



  • Company: In the format paper.exchange. If you move the cursor to a company, its name will appear on the screen. If the ticker is followed by stars, it means that there is important news about that security today. To view the news, click on the stars. The following abbreviations are used: OSE for Oslo Stock Exchange, ST for Stockholmsbørsen, CPH for København Fondsbørs, O for Nasdaq, N for NYSE, A for AMEX and F for Frankfurt. FOND is used for mutual funds, while OMFE and OMSW are Norwegian and Swedish options, respectively. 
  • Average price: Avarage buy price for purchases of the (remaining) stocks in the portfolio. See above for average price of currencies. 
  • Input value: Average price multiplied by the number of securities in the portfolio, multiplied by today's currency rate. 
  • Quotes: Last registered quote for the paper. In real-time if you are subscribed to this. 
  • Value: Quote multiplied by the number of securities in the portfolio, multiplied by today's currency rate. 
  • Commissions: Total commissions for all trades in this security.
  • Realized profit: Profit realized by sale. This is calculated according to the FIFO principle, which means that the first bought securities are the first sold securities (First In - First Out).
  • Unrealized profit: This is the profit you would receive for a sale with today's quotes (Input value - market value).
  • Return in percent: (Value - input value - commissions) / input value = return in percent

The cash balance can be added as you wish. The total balance is the value of stocks and cash in total. Total profit is the total balance minus the investment amount. If there is a realized profit, the whole input value should be included. Realized profit works after the FIFO principle (see above!). If you enter and exit the stock, the input value is the total sum of all purchases. In addition, we operate with the following formula: Realized profit - unrealized profit - commissions / input value = earnings in percent.
