PnL Question

I'm Stumped,

What I am trying to do is store PnL in a DataSeries per trade (not per lot). For example, if I buy three contracts and it fills in two lots when closing the position. I want the PnL on the three contracts, not on a lot basis. The reasoning behind this is I want to avoid risk of ruin by controlling position sizing by PnL.

What I have so far:

#region Variables
private DataSeries PnL;

protected override void Initialize()
PnL = new DataSeries(this);

protected override void OnBarUpdate()
//No PnL information in this 

protected override void OnExecution(IExecution execution)
if (Performance.RealtimeTrades.Count > 0)
	// Get the last completed real-time trade (at index 0)
Trade Trade1 = Performance.RealtimeTrades[Performance.RealtimeTrades.Count - 1];
	// Calculate the PnL for the last completed real-time trade
double lastProfit = Trade1.ProfitCurrency * Trade1.Quantity;

if(lastProfit != PnL[1]) {PnL[0] = lastProfit; Print("PnL " +PnL[0]);}
Print("The last trade's profit is " + lastProfit);
The problem is it is returning the PnL for each lot, which will not benefit me in my position sizing calculation. Any thoughts on a work around.

P.S. - new to the Elite crowd, and very happy that I purchased the membership. If you have not done so and are thinking about it... DO IT!!!
