Portfolios and positions

The portfolio in FA is a basket of investments that can hold stocks, bonds, cash and other items. These positions have amount (units), purchase price and market price. FA is a transaction-based system, so these positions are built on transactions that are recorded to the system.

Securities

In FA the term "security" refers to a financial instrument that has some monetary value.
