Best way to compare to Buy & Hold Return in the performance report

Postby tc12345 » 29 Jan 2020

The default behavior is to buy a fixed number of shares/cash. How can I set my strategy to buy all shares that my account can buy (no margin)? I believe Buy & Hold Return in the performance report buys partial shares.
