An increase in the value of a capital asset (investment or real
estate) that gives it a higher worth than the purchase price.
The gain is not realized until the asset is sold. A capital gain
may be short term (one year or less) or long term (more than
one year) and must be claimed on income taxes. A capital
loss is incurred when there is a decrease in the capital asset
value compared to an asset's purchase price.
Profit that results when the price of a security held by a
mutual fund rises above its purchase price and the security is
sold (realized gain). If the security continues to be held, the
gain is unrealized. A capital loss would occur when the
opposite takes place.
