Return on Investment--Year to Date

I have 7 funds that were bought in December 2020. The Market value on 12/31/20 was $79,499. The market value close on Friday, 1/15/20 was $81,664. My return on investment should be $2291/$79,499==.0288%

However, Quicken shows return on investment YTD as -.44%
This just doesn't make any sense to me.

    Have you sold some shares for this security in the past? Shouldn't the denominator be your investments rather than the market value?  Maybe you should run investment performance report or an IRR measure instead.

    Please forget this post--I found my error-----I made a small purchase in one of the funds that I completely forgot about.
    Sorry to waste your time.

    No cash In the account?

    How did you combine the securities? Group by account or selected securities?

    Jim----I grouped by selected securities but I completely forgot that I made additional investment last week in one of the stocks.
