Your account statement from your broker includes all your closed trades and open positions. The open positions are valued as of their last price. This valuation is called mark-to-market.
This fact is important because the equity curve is made up of closed trades. Open positions are not reflected in the curve. As they close, they are then added into the equity curve. But remember, new positions are always opening.
Therefore, for any given timeframe, your Brokerage account statement and the Monthly Profit and Trade Count Table will probably not match. The difference will be the value of the open positions you see on your Brokerage Statement that you do not see on the tables.
