Net change is the difference in an asset’s closing price from one day to the next. It is a commonly used method of quoting the price movements of stocks and funds.

Net change can be displayed as either a positive or negative, or, on rare occasions, neutral, depending on the direction of the price movement. The impact of a dividend payment or stock split is negated when displaying net change.

Calculating net change is simple: take the current day’s closing price away from that of the previous day for any particular asset. If Keppel Corp closes at $6.00 today, after closing at $6.10 the previous day, then its net change is -$0.10.
