The Scout dashboard displays key metrics that help you understand your portfolio better. This view allows you to see your profit, sales income and more. Filtering by different time periods also enables you to view your metrics based on values during that given range of time.

Main Graphs

Scout Profit is the main graph on your dashboard. This shows the total profit you've made including your unrealised profit from items in your inventory.

By default, the graph displays your profit made from sales and your unrealised profit in your inventory. The unrealised profit is the potential amount of profit you could make from selling through StockX.

Hovering your cursor over different parts of the graph will display your profit based on the time period.

As well as the profit graph, you can view four other graphs by clicking on the Change Graph button at the top.

Scout Portfolio is a sum of your total profit from sales, unrealised profit and the total amount you've spent on items. The Scout Portfolio graph is similar to the Scout Profit graph except it also adds in your total purchases represented as capital.

Unrealised Profit is the amount of profit you would make if you sold everything in your inventory. The value is calculated from the average market values of your items on StockX minus the purchase price of all your inventory items. Please bear in mind that platform fees are not accounted for at this time.

Realised Profit is your total profit made in sales. Return on Investment (ROI) is a key indicator that reflects the ratio of how much you've made versus how much you've invested

Inventory Value The Inventory Value graph shows the total market value of all your inventory items. The market value is based on StockX.

Clicking a Point in the Graph

Clicking a specific point in the graph will display a breakdown of your items on the right-hand side. Each graph will display results based on the metric being measured.

For example, on the Unrealised Profit graph, you can click a point to bring up all your items from your inventory. This reflects how much you'd make if you sold all the items you were holding since the selected day. From there, you can click the item to view the size breakdown and total amount held.

The Unrealised Profit is (Total Market Value - Total Purchase Price) of all items in your inventory. This reflects the amount of profit you could have made by selling on that specific day. You can also view any new purchases you made that day by clicking "New Purchases".


Below the main graph are 9 smaller graphs that provide insights into your income, total spend, expenses and more. As with the main graph, hovering your cursor over the different points in each graph will display the metric during that time.

Types of Graphs
