Trading Performance and Return Results Don't Match

Does WealthSignals report all the closed trades on the website for the strategy? Reason I am asking is that if I sum all my closed trades and open trades to date, it sure does not add up and equal the return listed.

Not sure which performance metric do you mean, precisely?

When the WealthSignals Publisher uploads the results, they include both open and closed trades. In other words, the numbers and metrics are in line with your backtest as of upload date.

If I go to my dashboard and click on my strategy (e.g. Money Machine), then select > highlight> and copy my open positions and paste into excel then do the same for closed positions and sum both open and closed positions, I get -$571.79. Yet my strategy is showing a return of 7.77% or $2,331.53 gain from the initial 30,000 starting capital. This is a system were I am rotating my dataset week to week (utilizing zacks rank) , thus my trades become out-of-synch very easily and the performance in Wealth-Lab do not match my real account. My question is this: Are all the past trades placed in this strategy shown on the website or are some hidden (after sometime this will become very large, thus I figure you will archive some or paginate the results), because the sum of the shown results do not add up?

It's likely that there's an error on our side. We'll look into the issue and try to catch the bug. At any rate, the numbers on Money Launcher will be recalculated before the market opens tomorrow.
