Buying Power

While buying power can take on a different meaning depending on the context or industry, in finance, buying power refers to the amount of money available for investors/traders to purchase securities in a leveraged account.

Definition of Net

Pnl after subtracting the number of shares traded multiplied by $0.005, Electronic Communication Network (ECN) charges and miscellaneous execution fees.

Definition of Sharpe

The Sharpe ratio is a measure of return often used to compare the performance of investment managers by making an adjustment for risk. For example, Investment Manager A generates a return of 15%, and Investment Manager B generates a return of 12%. It appears that manager A is a better performer. However, if manager A took larger risks than manager B, it may be that manager B has a better risk-adjusted return.
