unrealized loss

Definition

Forex

  • A form of negative value change for an asset due to the current market price being worse than the trade entry price and assessed before the position in the asset has been closed out. Most forex traders are not as concerned about an unrealized loss, as about a realized one when the losing position is squared and the irrevocable loss taken.
