Account Balance Text - External Service

The study displays the Account Balance as text which can be positioned anywhere on the chart. The Account Balance is the Current Cash Balance available from your external trading service, if it provides Account Balance data. This is not a simulated trading Account Balance.

If the trading service you are using supports multiple trade accounts, then this will be the balance for the selected Trade Account in the chart.
