“It’s not always that we need to do more but rather that we need to focus on less.”
– Nathan W. Morris, author and finance expert
Many first-time investors find it hard to grasp the macro-trends in the market as they are too busy trying to assess the micro-changes that are happening in their portfolio every minute.
Here at Angel One, we believe that even the smallest discomfort of the trader is a cause for concern. With this in mind, we have come up with a whole new range of advanced features that will revolutionise how an average investor tracks his/her portfolio on a trading app.
Let’s take a look at them in detail.
- Efficiently navigate through the most complex portfolios – Use the Collapsed View and Detailed ViewTo let you skim through your portfolio or go into the details as and when required.
- Portfolio Analyser – To help you retrospect your investments and empower you to make right decisions.
- Separate Section on Inactive stocks – To let you focus on the ones that are active.
- Download Portfolio – To enable you access your holdings on excel for all the data crunching you desire.
- Trade History and Dividends Earned.
- 6 Sorting themes and 4 Filters to help you analyse your investments in different data cuts.
Efficiently navigate through the most complex portfolios
In the new version, the user can easily spot the overall details of their portfolio on the homepage itself, where they can check their –
- Current Market Value of all their assets
- Overall gain (both in absolute terms and percentage terms)
- Invested Value
- Today’s gain/loss (both in absolute and percentage terms)
Thereafter, when you reach the Portfolio page, you will also find the option to download the portfolio data (through the downward arrow icon on the top right).

Now there are two different formats available for the user in the portfolio section – the collapsed view and the detailed view.
The collapsed view (which is the default view) shows the basic facts about each scrip i.e. –
- Names of the asset
- Unrealised gains or losses from the trade
- Quantity bought multiplied by the average price at which it was bought
- LTP i.e. the last traded price
However, if the user is interested in knowing further details about the scrips, they can enable the detailed view. It will show the above details as well as additional information on each scrip such as –
- Day’s gain/loss (both in absolute and percentage terms)
- Total invested amount
- Total current value of that investment
Furthermore, while using the detailed view, the user will also be able to sort his/her scrips as per the day’s gains or losses.
Fig.2: Collapsed View (left) and Detailed View (right). Click on the three vertical lines (or rods) right next to “Search for stock or company” to reach the “Sort by” or “Filter by” window, where you can enable the detailed view (as seen in the following figure)
How to switch to the detailed view
In order to switch from collapsed view to detailed view, all you have to do is click on the three rods menu next to the search bar – a window will appear where you will have to go to the “Sort by” section and activate the detailed view icon.
Note: The “Sort by” section will list all the variables by which your portfolio can be sorted, such as alphabetical order, LTP change etc.

Benefits from this
- With this innovation, users do not have to look for the basic details of the scrips in their portfolio amid multiple variables on the screen – further details will be provided only when the user actually needs them and demands them.
- Moreover, because of less details per scrip, the user can view more scrips on their screen at the same time without scrolling – the latest key changes in their portfolio will thus become easier to track.
The process of tracking their portfolio will automatically become much easier.
It’s a small but delightful change which will make users enjoy the trading process.
Portfolio Analyser – Empowering Beginners
Very often, novice investors miss out on diversifying their portfolio fearing their inability to track the various investments. With our latest upgrade we introduce the Portfolio Analyser which can help you identify below aspects of your portfolio –
- Coverage across Small/Medium/Large Stocks
- Coverage across sectors
- Investment distribution across Stocks
The macro level analysis will be available to you through pie charts, bar graphs etc. that can be easily read and understood.

Trade History and Dividend Earned
If you click on an individual asset in your portfolio page and scroll down to the bottom, you will see two new, innovative options that we have added – Trade History and Dividend Earned.
Trade History will give you the details of every trade you made on a daily basis along with the following data –
- Number of assets bought/sold
- Average market price at which the trade was made
- Total amount paid/received in that trade
- Date of the trade
You can sort the above list based on the action (i.e. buy/sell) and the total amount involved in the trade by hitting the arrow signs beside these headings.

Under the Dividend Earned page, you can view the list of the dividends paid to your account and the date when it was paid. The following information will be visible –
- Date of the payment of dividend
- Total dividend amount received in your account on each individual date (in the list)
- Total dividend earned in the financial year (in the green box at the bottom)
You can change the financial year for which the trades you are viewing by clicking the required financial year on the top of the page.
But wait! We have more…
In addition to the above changes, we have some more surprises for you!
Inactive stocks kept separate
Earlier, the stocks which became inactive (for various reasons, such as delisting) used to be located alongside active stocks. Therefore the reason behind their LTP going down to 0 would be unclear which would create confusion in the mind of the user.
However, from now on, users can view the following types of inactive stocks separately on their portfolio –
- Delisted stocks (if any)
- Lockin Shares (if any)
- Demerger shares which have been credited to the user’s account but have not been listed yet
- Bonus shares which have been credited to the user’s Demat a/c but have not been listed yet
All these scrips and their details will be stated separately under the category of inactive stocks. Confusion on which stocks are active and which ones are inactive hence becomes zero! Now that’s what we call simple, user-oriented innovation.

Advanced tech is one thing, but enhanced user experience is quite another. It’s with this philosophy that we have built the most user-friendly trading app in India.
