Why does my investment account show three different values--Securities Value; Cash Balance; Total Market Value?

    What, about those labels, isn't clear?  The 1st is the value of the securities in the account.  The 2nd is the value of any cash held in the account, the 3rd is the sum of the securities and cash.

    Seems pretty obvious - what's your problem with those labels and numbers.... are they wrong ?
    Do you mean the lines at the bottom of the Register -
    or - the line items in the lower "Account Status" if you click on "Holdings" ?

    @Mrod - those three balances you see on the bottom right of the investment register should correspond to the values in the Market Value column in your holdings list.  Click on "Holding" in the upper left of the investment register and maximize the window so you can see the "Market Value" column. 

    The total of the investments in this column should correspond to the "Securities Value", the Cash in this column should correspond to "Cash Balance", and the Total should correspond to "Total Market Value".
