Portfolio Summary gains do not match what is indicated in performance

Something does not add up. Rharian Portfolio summary correctly indicates a profit of 0.2% but when it gets transferred to the performance it shows a -1.49% a similar problem yesterday but smaller magnitude

I have to agree, it doesn't add up. The portfolio's equity changed from $382,621 (18 June) to $376,926 (19 June) which is -1.49%, but the net profit of positions for that day was positive. We'll look into it right away.

It looks like we have a bug in a new backend process (implemented 28 May 2019) for recovering cash when exiting a short position. We'll get this fixed right away and make the appropriate corrections to the strategy's equity/cash curves and performance. Thanks for the heads up!

My email said the gain for today was 0.00 but it was actually $800. I didn't have any short positions.

We fixed the bug for exiting short positions, but we're still working on correcting the cash/equity curve data since 28 May. I'll let you know here when it's complete.

Okay, history and performance should be correct now. Let me know if you detect any problems. Thanks!

Although everything looks correct now for covered shorts, it looks to me like there may still be a problem with the "current equity" calculation with short positions. Stand by!

We've correctly recovered the equity/cash and recalculated performance. Everything is correct in the model portfolio again. (I'll correct the subscriber's portfolio later.)

The only thing to note is that the Friday's (21-June-2019) portfolio change is showing -$783.03, when in reality it was -$1,106.21. For some reason the system calculated that total as if the positions in SPY had only changed -$0.43 when in reality it had changed -$1.86 from Thursday. Not sure how that happened, but we'll have to keep an eye on that!

We've got the WealthSignals out-of-sample test back on track for the model and subscriber(s). Sorry for the hiccup!

Thanks for fixing that
