Gross Weight vs Net Weight in Your Portfolio The weight of your assets is the amount of each security in your portfolio relative to the entire portfolio. Weight changes depending on whether youre selling short or long. With a little practice, its easy to tell the difference between gross weight vs net weight.

    Gross Weight

    Gross weight is easy to determine. If you have a portfolio that consists of $13,000 long and $3,000 short positions, then you have a total investment of $16,000. The gross weight of your long position is 81.25%, and the gross weight of your short position is 18.75%. In order to find gross weight, you need to divide the amount of any given security by the amount of total securities held. Its up to you whether you want to use dollar values or shares as the metric for comparison. Net Weight

    Net weight is slightly more complicated to figure. In our example, we have a portfolio with $3,000 long and $2,000 tied up in short positions. In this case, the net weight of our long positions is +130 and the net weight for our short position is -30. The net weight is based on the total value of your portfolio, and looks at long investments as positive and short investments as negative. The two numbers will always add up to the net of 100.
