poomie83 Could someone provide an explanation
sjurrens Just a definition. It's how the firm decides to define the security. Check accounting notes for types of securities (those listed in the question are the 3)
charomano Unrealized gains/losses from HTM are not reported in neither Comprehensive Income nor Net Income
sogah what about ii
NIKKIZ Held-to-maturity; - premiums/discounts are amortized and amortized amount posted into the income statement. Available-for-sale - gains/losses posted to Other Comprehensive Income. Held-For-Trading; gains/losses marked to market and posted in the income statement. Note that for realized gains (from the actual sale of an investment) the gains/losses become realized for any investment and are always included in the income statement.

johntan1979 Unrealized gains/losses for HTM are NOT REPORTED! Please be aware of this.
robbiecow HTM: Transaction is on the BS (reported @ amtz cost)
AFS: Fair value (gains & losses to Other Comprehensive Inc.)
TS: Fair value (gains & losses to Oper. Income)

Think of what the intent of each one is.
