When backtesting or paper trading, I can set my account balance to 1,000 Euros by using:

self.Portfolio.SetCash(0) # Set USD to 0 since we only have EUR in our account
self.Portfolio.SetCash("EUR", 1000, 1.19) # Set EUR strategy cash with current EURUSD conversion rate

This then shows a positive amount of $1,190 as equity (as you'd expect). 

However, when I depoy to Coinbase Pro (live trading), the equity amount shows as $0 - although I can see the Euro amount in the holdings tab. My Coinbase Pro acount is funded.

I can live with not seeing my account balance in QunatConnect, but am curious as to whether this will affect the operation of the algorithm?
