Difference between `Securities` and `ActiveSecurities`

Hi,

What is the difference between the securities contained in Securities and those contained in ActiveSecurities? From testing, it seems like ActiveSecurities contains those securities one has subscribed to in the algorithm (in a framework algo, this would be through adding them to one's universe) whereas Securities also contains things like extra FX rates to convert from account to display currency.

Is this correct?

Hi Douglas,

Yes you are correct. In fact, Securities is a collection of securities that were part of the algorithm during its lifetime, and ActiveSecurities is a collection which the algorithm subscribe and wants to trade in the present.

Here is a backtest logging the difference between those two. The log shows that once a security is added, it will never be removed from "Securities", and will be removed from "ActiveSecurities" upon change in universe selection.

Hope it helps!
