      Trade lastTrade = SystemPerformance.AllTrades[SystemPerformance.AllTrades.Count - 1];
      Trade firstTrade = SystemPerformance.AllTrades[0];
 
      Print("The last trade profit is " + lastTrade.ProfitPercent);

  {
      Print("There are " + SystemPerformance.AllTrades.LosingTrades.Count + " losing trades.");
