What is the difference between market value and book value?

Market value is the current estimated value of your holdings (i.e. if you were to sell them today). Book value is your cost of purchasing the holdings in your account. Unrealized Gain/Loss is the difference between what you paid for a holding and approximately what you could sell it for, given current market conditions.
