Negative Capital Gains on Initial Buys

Hey all,

I don't get the idea behind the negative "Capital Gain" that I get when I buy new equity stock?

Shouldn't it be zero. It (the negative capital gain) makes sense as time progresses.

I tried using the opening balance feature but it didn't take into account the brokerage fee price. This feature was a bit confusing.

Any help would be much appreciated.
