New Reporting Developments at Bitfinex
1. Equivalent USD Balance
A key new feature is the display of USD equivalent values across all your assets. The calculation takes into consideration the daily close price on the trading pair/USD.
2. Average Win/Loss
A new section, labeled Average Win/Loss, displays the daily, weekly and monthly portfolio gains across a selected time frame. Values are represented in USD or fiat currency of choice.
The formula used takes into consideration equity, trades, funding earnings, funding costs, price movements, transactions, and fees; it does not take into account open margin positions.
3. Account Balance
A new section, labeled Account Balance, displays the daily, weekly or monthly account balances expressed in USD or other fiat currencies for the selected time frames.
4. Wallet — Say goodbye to beta mode
The Wallet has now proven itself to be accurate across balance fluctuations and price movements. In line with this, we are happy to wave goodbye to the beta tag.
5. Currency Breakdown
This new section, labeled Concentration Risk, displays the currency breakdown of your portfolio, at a select moment in time, allowing you to view a visual breakdown of your trading wallet and the respective proportions of each asset.
To use this new software there are two options.
Option 1: Download the framework for Windows/Mac/Linux from github.com/bitfinexcom/bfx-report-electron/releases.
Option 2: Download the NodeJs/ReactJs software from github.com/bitfinexcom/bfx-reports-framework and follow the linked instructions on how to install it.
Contribute to bitfinexcom/bfx-reports-framework development by creating an account on GitHub.
Once installed, create a set of read-only keys via bitfinex.com/api. Make note of them as they will be required for logging in.
Use both API and Secret Key to log in and wait till synchronization with the cloud is complete.
The first time might take a few minutes as your data; however, you can leave the software running on a second screen and do something else meanwhile.
Below are a number of the plans for the reporting tool in 2019:
- Export files digitally signed.
- New subsite for the improved downloading of public data.
- Improved sorting and filtering across tables.
- Optimized framework for sharing data between users.
- Mobile app integration.
Whilst we have many plans for our reporting tools moving forward, what matters most to us is developing a framework which fits the needs of our users. To assist us with this, please continue to reach out to email@example.com for feedback.
