Hi all,

In a simple buy low sell high equity algo, I am trying to log profit/loss for every sell order. I assumed it would be simple but am having a hard time. 

I have tried "self.Log(self.Portfolio["SPY"].LastTradeProfit)" placed right under Set.Holdings code below and also have tried "self.Log(self.Securities["SPY"].Price-self.Portfolio["SPY"].AveragePrice)."

if self.Securities["SPY"].Price > self.Portfolio["SPY"].AveragePrice:
self.SetHoldings("SPY", 0.0, False, "TAKE PROFIT")

The log posts the wrong value and also posts it every minute instead of just when the sell order executes. I can't seem to solve both of those issues. The algo runs on minute intervals and is coded in python. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
