Accessing Account balance from strategy.

Postby robbob » 12 Mar 2013

How would I access the current account balance from a strategy? I see there is an Account property that is accessible from the strategy, but it is a String and not an object. Any hints?

Thanks,
-Rob

Hello Rob,

You need to use Account.Balance Property. Example:

Code: Select all

TradeManager.ProcessEvents();
...
TradeManager.TradingData.Accounts.Items[0].Balance;

I'm getting an IndexOutOfRangeException when attempt to call:

TradeManager.TradingData.Accounts.Items[0].Balance;

You need to check the amount of elements in the Accounts.Items collection first, then you can extract a value from this collection. The attached sample code will output profile name and balance to the Output tab of the PL .Net Editor.
