The "asset value" is always calculated automatically with the formula "amount * price according to time stamp" (according to our price sources Fiat, coin and commodities price sources, individual exchange price, change Fiat account Currency).
The difference between asset value and cost basis is as follows:
The asset value is always related to the transaction at this point in time ONLY. The cost basis is calculated from ALL previous purchases and sells.
If you want to adjust the asset value for whatever reason (e.g. the spread is to high) you need to do this manually for each transaction.
Go to the "Enter Coins" page.
1. Select a transaction
2. click on "edit"
3. click on "edit asset value"
4. Adjust the "purchase value"
5. Adjust the "sale value"
