## Net Change Example

**How to calculate net change? **

The first step in calculating the net change of an investment or asset is to determine the current price of that asset. In this example, the current price of the asset is found to be $5,000.00

The next step is to calculate or determine the previous price of the previous period. In this case, the previous price was $4,000.00.

Finally, calculate the net absolute change and the percentage change using the formulas above:

NC = CP – PP = $1,000.00

NC (%) = (CP – PP) / PP * 100 = 25%
