Capital gains are profits made from the purchase and sale of assets. They are created when traders sell assets, such as stocks or commodities, for more than they paid for them. A capital loss is the inverse of a capital gain.

Traders only realise capital gains and losses when their position is closed and profit or loss is taken. Capital gains tax is levied when a capital gain is realized.
