unrealized capital gain/loss

unrealized capital gain/loss
An increase/decrease in the value of a security that is not " real" because the security has not been sold. Once a security is sold by the portfolio manager, the capital gains/losses are "realized" by the fund, and any payment to the shareholder is taxable during the tax year in which the security is sold.
