Hi Mike,

the net new cash added is that just cash or new purchased stocks?
Example I have a total account value 10.000, I added 1.000 and my invested value is 9.000. What should I use for the return?

I'm not Mike, but, think I have an answer. It depends on what performance you are trying to measure. If you want the performance of the entire portfolio then it should be included. If you want the performance of just the $9,000 investment then do not include it.
