Are you a market baron or are you a Hollywood Dollar away from jumping out of a window? You can determine your cash flow situation through your realized gain or loss. This is the amount you have either made or lost on a particular investment, also expressed as profit or loss. Selling a MovieStock, StarBond, or any other security for more or less than you originally invested in them will result in either a profit or a loss. HSX uses parentheses (rather than a negative or minus sign) to indicate a loss.
The difference between the amount received upon the sale or other disposition of property and the adjusted basis of the property.
