The Account History Performance resource provide access to various historical metrics which you can use to measure aggregate performance of a client or account.
Performance is only calculated on days where the market is open, and is calculated during end of day processing.
Note that metrics provided by this resource relating to unrealized PnL and returns already incorporate the following attributes into the calculations:
- Costs to open, maintain, and close the account/client's positions
- Currency Conversion PnL, from each position's currency to the destination account/client currency
- Income generated by corporate actions the client/account
If calculating these PnL and unrealized return fields yourself, consider these attributes to provide an accurate representation.

For performance of specific closed trades and positions, see the Client Services resources available.
