Realized daily profit/loss

I am looking to access the realized profit/loss during the day. When backtesting, how do we get the realized profit at any instant for that day alone? thanks.

Hi Ags,

To calculate the daily realized profit/loss, we can add some properties in Initialize

self.yesterday_total_profit = 0
self.yesterday_total_fees = 0

To calculated the daily realized profit and loss intraday, we can call

def get_daily_realized_pnl(self):
daily_gross_profit = self.Portfolio.TotalProfit - self.yesterday_total_profit
daily_fees = self.Portfolio.TotalFees - self.yesterday_total_fees
return daily_gross_profit - daily_fees

We just need to ensure we update the `yesterday` values at the end of each day

def OnEndOfDay(self):
self.yesterday_total_profit = self.Portfolio.TotalProfit
self.yesterday_total_fees = self.Portfolio.TotalFees

See the attached backtest for reference.

Best,
Derek Melchin
