How is XIRR compute and what does the number mean?

  1. XIRR essentially returns the internal rate of return (IRR) for a series of cash flows that occur at irregular intervals. See https://exceljet.net/excel-functions/excel-xirr-function

  2. Basically, it is the money weighted returns.
    Based on the average amount of money you have invested, what is the returns you get?
    Or “returns in absolute value for that year” / “average amount of money invested in that year”
