Cash entries should be allowed to count towards overall Gain
I know you can enter $$CASH lots to track your cash, but there are 2 kinds of cash:
- If I sold a stock and want the gain/loss to be included in my portfolio TOTAL GAIN (and %).
- Cash that is just sitting in my account and has no impact on gain.
There used to be a way to specify the Gain so that it is included in the Total Gain calculation. Please bring that back!

This also applies to Day's Gain, which is very important to me. I increase and decrease the amount of my portfolio that's parked in cash depending on how I'm reading the market, and I always look at the Day's Gain to see how I'm doing relative to benchmark. For that to be accurate, it needs to include the cash in my assets for calculating the percentage gain or loss. It currently does not.
