**1. Calculation Method of Total PnL% (Updated)**

Total PnL% = Carryover PnL% + PnL% in the current calculation period

PnL% in the current calculation period = PnL in the current calculation period / Assets at the start of the current calculation period * 100%

PnL in the current calculation period = Assets at the end of the current calculation period - Assets at the start of the current calculation period - Profits shared in the current calculation period

Assets at the start of the current calculation period = Assets at the end of the last calculation period + Incoming transfers in the current calculation period - Outgoing transfers in the current calculation period

Assets at the end of the current calculation period = Total assets in the trader's Copy Trading account in the current calculation period

Profits shared in the current calculation period = Cumulative profits the trader received in the current calculation period

PnL% in the current calculation period: The amount of profit or loss in terms of percentage that has been incurred from the last transfer to the present moment.

Carryover PnL%: After a transfer occurs, the total PnL% from the previous calculation period is recorded as the carryover PnL%.

Calculation Period: The system automatically calculates the total PnL% every 15 minutes based on whether any transfers have been made by traders.

Note: Any assets below 50 USDT at the start of the calculation period will be considered equivalent to 50 USDT for the purpose of calculation.

**T0:**

If a trader's Copy Trading account has no assets and they make a transfer of 200 USDT in the current calculation period (T0), the trader would have initial assets of 200 USDT. Additionally, if no further trades or profits/losses occur during the period, the assets at the end of the period would still be 200 USDT. As a result, the current PnL would be 0, and the total PnL percentage would also be 0%.

**T1:**

If the trader's assets reach 330 USDT (from 200 USDT initially) at the end of the current calculation period (T1), with 30 USDT being the profits shared by their followers and the trader's net profits being 100 USDT, the current PnL percentage would be 50%. However, since the carryover PnL percentage is 0% and there have been no transfers in the current period, the total PnL percentage would also be 50%.

**T2:**

If the trader transfers in 70 USDT in the Copy Trading account, the assets at the start of the current calculation period (T2) would be 400 USDT. However, if the trader incurs a loss during the period, resulting in assets of 300 USDT at the end of the period and no profits shared from followers, the current PnL and the PnL percentage for the period would be -100 USDT and -25%, respectively. Since a transfer occurred during the period, the previous period's total PnL percentage is recorded as the carryover PnL percentage of 50%. Therefore, the total PnL percentage for the period would be 25%.

**T3:**

If the trader transfers in 200 USDT in the Copy Trading account, the assets at the start of the current calculation period (T3) would be 500 USDT. Assuming the trader gains profits during the period, resulting in assets of 800 USDT at the end of the period and profits shared from followers of 50 USDT, the current PnL and the PnL percentage for the period would be 250 USDT and 50%, respectively. Since a transfer occurred during the period, the previous period's total PnL percentage is recorded as the carryover PnL percentage of 25%. Therefore, the total PnL percentage for the period would be 75%.

**T4:**

If the trader transfers in 300 USDT and transfers out 100 USDT in the Copy Trading account, the assets at the start of the current calculation period (T4) would be 1,000 USDT. Assuming the trader gains profits during the period, resulting in assets of 1,500 USDT at the end of the period and profits shared from followers of 200 USDT, the current PnL and the PnL percentage for the period would be 300 USDT and 30%, respectively. Since a transfer occurred during the period, the previous period's total PnL percentage is recorded as the carryover PnL percentage of 75%. Therefore, the total PnL percentage for the period would be 105%.

**3. Data Display Under New PnL% Calculation Method**

** **

To mitigate the impact of the new PnL% calculation method on existing lead traders with HTX Copy Trading, adjustments are made for their data display.

For existing traders who were approved before December 7, 2023, their total PnL% at 00:00 (UTC+8) on December 7, 2023, will be used as the carryover PnL. After 00:00 (UTC+8) of the day, new total PnL% will be calculated based on real-time PnL% and previous carryover PnL%.

For traders who applied and were approved after 00:00 (UTC+8) on December 7, 2023, their total PnL% will be calculated using the new calculation method.
