Moonchart Tearsheet says it’s only made $64.76, versus the reality of $465.

Does moonchart/tearsheet analysis only take closed positions into effect? I’m guessing that $64.76 is closing some small positions for daily re-balancing and only that is being counted towards returns.

Please see the PNL caveats in the docs.
