    Hello all,

    I want to show the biggest MAE in %. For this, the biggest MAE should be divided by the current account balance and mulitplied by 100. The code for biggest MAE is the following:

    package SQ.Columns.Databanks;

    import com.strategyquant.lib.L;
    import com.strategyquant.lib.SettingsMap;
    import com.strategyquant.tradinglib.DatabankColumn;
    import com.strategyquant.tradinglib.Order;
    import com.strategyquant.tradinglib.OrdersList;
    import com.strategyquant.tradinglib.SQStats;
    import com.strategyquant.tradinglib.StatsTypeCombination;
    import com.strategyquant.tradinglib.ValueTypes;

    public class BiggestMAE extends DatabankColumn {

    public BiggestMAE() {
    super(L.t(“Biggest MAE”), DatabankColumn.Decimal2PL, ValueTypes.Minimize, 0, 0, 100);


    setTooltip(L.t(“Biggest MAE – is the worst Maximum Adverse Excursion of all trades”));


    public double compute(SQStats stats, StatsTypeCombination combination, OrdersList ordersList, SettingsMap settings, SQStats statsLong, SQStats statsShort) throws Exception {
    double worstMAE = -Double.MAX_VALUE;

    for(int i = 0; i<ordersList.size(); i++) {
    Order order = ordersList.get(i);

    if(order.MAE > worstMAE) {
    worstMAE = order.MAE;

    return -1*worstMAE;


    Can someone help me in finding the current account balance of the trade and divide the variable worstMAE by it? I think the function AccountBalance from the class Order should suffice, but I don’t get it to work.
