How can I plot the broker value vs a stock?

  • I have been able to plot the AAPL stock and the value on different charts. I would like to have them on the same chart so I can compare them. How can I do that? I don't know if I can add a value indicator to the data or what. This is what I have.

    import datetime  # For datetime objects
    import os.path  # To manage paths
    import sys  # To find out the script name (in argv[0])
    # Import the backtrader platform
    import backtrader as bt
    from _extensions.data_definitions import DOHLCVData
    AAPL_PATH = "./../../data/datasets/02_processed/eod/AAPL.csv"
    class LongAAPL(bt.Strategy):
        def next(self):
            self.order_target_percent(, 1)
    if __name__ == '__main__':
        # Create a cerebro entity
        cerebro = bt.Cerebro(stdstats=False)
        # Create a Data Feed
        data = DOHLCVData(
            fromdate=datetime.datetime(2020, 1, 1),
            todate=datetime.datetime(2020, 12, 31),  # month was in 12
        cerebro.adddata(data, name="AAPL")
        print('Starting Portfolio Value: %.2f' %
        # Run over everything
        # Print out the final result
        print('Final Portfolio Value: %.2f' %

  • Of course right now the lines would be the same since I'm buying AAPL 100% but I want so I can see the results after modifying the strategy. Thanks!
