FIFO - principle

When trading stocks, it is important to understand the principles of accounting to ensure accuracy and compliance with accounting standards. One such principle is FiFO, which stands for "First In, First Out". This principle dictates that the first shares purchased should be sold first. In other words, when you sell shares, the oldest shares you've purchased are sold first. And this affects the calculation of gain/loss on sales.

The implementation of the FiFO principle can be challenging, especially for investors with complex portfolios or frequent transactions. Keeping track of purchase prices, the number of shares, and the timing of each transaction can be a daunting task. This is especially true when you must document and follow the FiFO principle for financial reporting and tax purposes.
