What is the realization concept ?

Answer:

The realization concept states that a accounting transaction takes place only for those economic events to which the entity is a party. This principle rules out recognizing a gain based on the appreciated market value of a still owned asset. A gain or loss on a marketable security occurs only when sold, not on the daily fluctuation of the share price.
