This represents accounting for currency gains or losses that are seen on the continuing assets or liabilities of the investor. Example of this type includes the currency gains on the market value of the equity shares as recorded in the functional currency. This type of gain or loss is of temporary in nature and will be either reversed the next day or passed on an incremental basis, meaning that it is subject to change on a daily basis depending upon the FX rates prevailing at that day. This is called ‘Transient FX translation entries‘.
