    It's calculated as the difference between what you paid for the
asset vs what it's worth.

    What you paid is what you see when you select "weighted averged"
for the price source in the balance sheet.  What it's worth is
calculated using whatever price source you told the balance sheet to
use.  If you select "weighted average" as your price source, your
unrealized gain should be zero.
