The orders/positions from the living portfolio mail updates don't add up. For example in the mail from 2020-11-10 13:00 the calculated position for AAPL was 24 stocks. Next day the mail order say BUY 23 AAPL. The position for AAPL in the same mail was 0, the position in the mail from 2020-11-12 for AAPL is also 0 suggesting that the order from 2020-11-11 should have actually been SELL 24 AAPL.
The order from 2020-11-11 says SELL GOOG 0.3% or 0 stocks. There was no GOOG in the portfolio on 2020-11-10. In the portfolio suddenly appeared 1 GOOG which was from that order of 0 stock onward ...
The orders in the mail from 2020-11-18 are also wierd. They suggest 0 AAPL, ADSK and GOOG stock should be bought and that 0 TTD and UNP stock should be sold ?! The percentages in the mail match the percentages on the website.
When I tried to export the positions and check the actual portfolio percentages the data exportable is only 'till 2020-11-03 and not 2020-11-18?
Is this a bug or am I reading the email updates wrong?
For the example in your mail on 2020-11-10, can I check with you what were the orders on that day? Was there a sell order for 24 stocks of Apple as well?
The way it works is that you need to look at both the current positions in the portfolio and any active orders that were created by the simulator. So if on 2020-11-10, if there were 24 lots of Apple and there was a SELL order for 24 lots of Apple, the backtester would assume you are going to sell 24 lots of Apple the next business day on 2020-11-11 resulting in 0 lots of Apple.
