mikesmith Great question, what you're talking about is essentially foreign exchange risk. It depends how you frame your returns, and what is your point of reference.
Before I give an example, please check out this post: Fractional Trading, because I see that you're talking about your trades in terms of shares, which isn't really in line with how things work on Morpher.
Let's say you buy $100 worth of MPH tokens @ $0.04, that's 2,500 MPH.
You invest them in a portfolio of assets, and after a month your portfolio has increased by 20%, or 500 MPH, and you now have a total of 3,000 MPH.
Scenario 1(A): If Morpher's own token price decreases to $0.02, that 3,000 MPH is now only worth $60.
Scenario 2(B): If Morpher's own token price increases to $0.06. that 3,000 MPH is now worth $180.
Imagine you invested 2,500 MPH, but your portfolio decreased by 20%, and now you only have 2000 MPH.
In Scenario 1(C), @ $0.02, that MPH is worth $40.
In Scenario 2(D), @ $0.06. that MPH is worth $120.
Exchange rate risk is something you have to worry about a lot in trading, especially if you trade foreign assets.
In Scenario 1A your portfolio increased, but your underlying settlement currency devalued. Your return was 20%, but it was -40%.
In Scenario 2B your portfolio increased in value and so did the underlying settlement currency, which means your gains were boosted, and while you earned a 20% return in MPH terms, in USD terms you earned 80% returns.
In Scenario 1C your portfolio decreased by 20% and the underlying currency also decreased, so you sustain a double loss totalling to -60%.
In Scenario 2D your portfolio decreased by 20%, but the underlying currency increased, so despite your losses in MPH you actually earned a 20%.
Hope this helps !
