Default Account items

I'm trying to get Realized pnl and Unrealized pnl from "Accounts" tab (want same numbers reflected in "Accounts" tab on aggregate day's all trades basis).

I am able to run the following but it seems to be based on the current strategy NOT aggregate "Accounts" tab...

protected override void OnAccountItemUpdate(Account account, AccountItem accountItem, double value)
{
Realized = (double)AccountItem.RealizedProfitLoss;
UnRealized = (double)AccountItem.UnrealizedProfitLoss;

Print(Realized + " " + UnRealized);
}

Hello EthanHunt,

Thanks for opening the thread.

OnAccountItemUpdate() will iterate for updates for the account that the NinjaScript is applied to, and will not be limited to the executions of your strategy.

I have attached a demonstration of this method in use where manual trades are taken and the strategy outputs data to the Output Window.

Demonstration: https://www.screencast.com/t/DhF7tjEaL

I've also attached a screenshot of my Control Center for this test.

If you would like to specify the account(s) you wish to see updates for, you can subscribe to AccountItemUpdate events for a particular account. I'll provide a publicly available documentation link and example where this gets implemented in an indicator.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Thanks. I see the following line. How do I set a variable for Realized pnl and Unrealized pnl? Thanks.

NinjaTrader.Code.Output.Process(string.Format("Acc ount: {0} AccountItem: {1} Value: {2}",
e.Account.Name, e.AccountItem, e.Value), PrintTo.OutputTab1);

Hello EthanHunt,

You will want to check if the Accounttem that is updating in the method is AccountItem.RealizedProfitLoss, or AccountItem.UnrealizedProfitLoss, and then you will want to set a variable to hold the value of e.Value when e is AccountItemEventArgs.

For example:
Code:
private void OnAccountItemUpdate(object sender, AccountItemEventArgs e)
{
	if(e.AccountItem == AccountItem.UnrealizedProfitLoss)
	{	
		double UnrealizedPnl = e.Value;
	}
}
Additional AccountItems are publicly documented here: https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...ccountitem.htm

I look forward to being of further assistance.
