In models where there is uncertainty that is resolved during the course of events, the ex ante values (e.g., of expected gain) are those that are calculated in advance of the resolution of uncertainty. In Webfolio, constraint results are determined ex ante during an investment session prior to the actual execution of the trades.

Latin for "after the fact". In models where there is uncertainty that is resolved during the course of events, the ex post values (e.g., of expected gain) are those that are calculated after the uncertainty has been resolved. In Webfolio, constraints results are determined ex post an evaluation.
