What is the Position Snapshot?

The Position Snapshot contains important summary information pertaining to a Position at a given point in time.

ONE uses this information in order to calculate the position standard deviation movements, implied volatility changes, margin profiles and the percentage profit and loss values. For this reason, it is important that these values are maintained correctly.
