Hey guys,

Quick question....what are the stock values for papermoney under (net liquidating value, stock buying power)

The reason I ask is I am somewhat new to day trading and I am learning I have been have a positive P/L everyday I have traded but I feel like I have lost money for some reason.

Current values are:
net liquidating value=103,412.62
stock buying power=188,637.24

Thanks for the help and I apologize if its a dumb question

There's two different account types available, Margin & IRA, check that you are using the same in both mobile and pc. The default I think was 100,000 but might have changed. You can go to the second menu on the Monitor tab, Account Statement, and put the days back to when you started paper trading and it will show the initial balance:
