Vars: AccBalance(0);

//Declaration of Variable

AccBalance = GetRTPurchasingPower(GetAccountID);

The "getxxxxxx" functions will supply you with whatever numerics you're looking for. You can either manually specify your account number or use the "GetAccountID" function to return it.

I have confirmed with Multicharts that there is no function that can read your account balance from the broker unfortunately.

Why not just consider a less sophisticated approach, and have an input variable be your starting balance, then have the strategy just run it real time as it has wins/losses during the day.


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Yeah this is what I've ended up doing. It just means when you stop and start the strategy you have to update the input variable with the account balance otherwise it will start again at whatever the input variable is set to as the default.

Lastly, the only REAL solution to the problem you're trying to solve (unattended trading) is to hire a just graduated finance student at $15/hour to baby sit your system Or baby sit it yourself.

And I can vouch for that....really the way to go!!...
