  2. Nope. No help here. :(

    -831.94 = -4.10 -274,752.84 +273,925.00

    The $4.10 has a source. (Comm.s)
    The +$273,925.00 has a source (the ES at SELL transaction time)

    The -274,752.84 is a mystery; it is not from the market.
    As it's in the Basis column, you've got a legitimate question. :wtf:

    Let us know what's up.
