Plotting seaborn graph

Hi all

Does anyone know if it is possible to plot a seaborn graph in my algorithm backtesting?

Thanks!

Hi Jenny,

We cannot create seaborn graphs on the backtest view page. However, we can save the data we'd like to plot in the ObjectStore, then load that data into the Research environment to plot with Seaborn. For example, in the backtest, we save the portfolio equity over time.

def OnEndOfDay(self):
self.equity_over_time.append(self.Portfolio.TotalPortfolioValue)

def OnEndOfAlgorithm(self):
self.ObjectStore.Save('equity', json5.dumps(self.equity_over_time))

Then in Research, we load this data and plot it.

qb = QuantBook()
equity_over_time = json5.loads(qb.ObjectStore.Read('equity'))
sns.lineplot(x=equity_over_time, y=range(len(equity_over_time)))

See the attached backtest and notebook for reference. Alternatively, for generating plots on the backtest view page without Seaborn, review our charting documentation.

Best,
Derek Melchin
