# Daily Profit and Losses ?

Hi everyone 😊,

I'm still a beginner in this fabulous language,

would you have a simple example code or a link with which I could calculate the daily profit or loss please?

I've done some research on the website but I often find MQL4 codes and not MQL5.

Daily Profit Function

Meta_Work, 2022.11.15 15:39

A simple and easy to understand function that calculates todays profit, written to the Expert Journal.

I've transformed the function a bit with your correction and a few extra lines, is there anything I'm still missing to check?

```double DayProfit(){
double   dayprof  = 0.0;
datetime end      = TimeCurrent();
datetime start    = end - PeriodSeconds(PERIOD_D1);

HistorySelect(start,end);

int TotalDeals = HistoryDealsTotal();
for(int i = 0; i < TotalDeals; i++) {
ulong    ticket   = HistoryDealGetTicket(i);
string   symbol   = HistoryDealGetString(ticket , DEAL_SYMBOL);
ulong    magic    = HistoryDealGetInteger(ticket, DEAL_MAGIC);
long     dealType = HistoryDealGetInteger(ticket, DEAL_ENTRY);

bool C1 = symbol == _Symbol && magic == InpLongMagicNumber && dealType == DEAL_ENTRY_OUT;
if(C1){
dayprof += HistoryDealGetDouble(ticket, DEAL_PROFIT);
}
}
return dayprof;

ZeroCafeine #: hi  Fernando Carreiro, Thank you for your reply. I've transformed the function a bit with your correction and a few extra lines, is there anything I'm still missing to check?

My apologies, but I have decided to step away from the forum for a period of time.

Hopefully someone else will look at your code and offer you some advice.

Best regards!

I guess it's for the vacations, so enjoy! 😉

No, not for vacation. I just want to step away from this forum in particular for a while!

ok no problem,

If I'm not mistaken, I thought you were a moderator and therefore perhaps earn a salary for moderating the Forum?

```double DayProfit(){
double   profits  = 0.0;
double   dayprof  = 0.0;
double   dayloss  = 0.0;
datetime end      = TimeCurrent();
datetime start    = end - PeriodSeconds(PERIOD_D1);

HistorySelect(start,end);

int TotalDeals = HistoryDealsTotal();
for(int i = 0; i < TotalDeals; i++) {
ulong    ticket   = HistoryDealGetTicket(i);
string   symbol   = HistoryDealGetString(ticket , DEAL_SYMBOL);
ulong    magic    = HistoryDealGetInteger(ticket, DEAL_MAGIC);
long     dealType = HistoryDealGetInteger(ticket, DEAL_ENTRY);

bool C1 = symbol == _Symbol && magic == InpLongMagicNumber && dealType == DEAL_ENTRY_OUT;
if(C1){
double LatestProfit = HistoryDealGetDouble(ticket, DEAL_PROFIT);
profits += HistoryDealGetDouble(ticket, DEAL_PROFIT);

if (HistoryDealGetDouble(ticket, DEAL_PROFIT) > 0){
dayprof += HistoryDealGetDouble(ticket, DEAL_PROFIT);
}

if (HistoryDealGetDouble(ticket, DEAL_PROFIT) < 0){
dayloss += HistoryDealGetDouble(ticket, DEAL_PROFIT);
}
}

}
Print("Function result - profits : ", profits);
Print("Function result - dayprof : ", dayprof);
Print("Function result - dayloss : ", dayloss);
return profits;

@All

Otherwise here's a new version of the code, I'll try to separate gains from losses, and also I think there's a problem with the line of code with the line of code : end - PeriodSeconds(PERIOD_D1), I don't think it's very compatible with the  TimeCurrent() function, I'll look for more on my side 😊

What do you recommend for recovering the 3 variables? It might be better to pass them as a reference ?

Fernando, I think you are one of the people who provides the most help through forums. I am certain that many of us know what we know about MQL4 and MQL5 thanks to you. Publicly, I thank you for your excellent contributions on this platform. I hope you come back soon. 👍

Hello everyone, I hope you're well,

why not simply use 0 as the starting point, as shown in the documentation here ?

`HistorySelect(0,TimeCurrent());`
