Hey,

I've been looking into adding my investments to my ledger-based plain text accounting system recently.

On one hand, I love the ability of ledger to automatically infer unrealised gains/losses. Makes things a lot easier, and less error prone.

However, also like the feature outlined in hledger's tutorial, where he demonstrates a daily/weekly/monthly report. (https://hledger.org/track-investments.html)

I managed to get ledger to group the register by month, but cannot get it to do "balance at the end of the month for the months from X to Y"

Am I doing something wrong, or is this something that's not possible with ledger atm?

Regards,
Dan

I'm not sure, but is there a reason you can't call ledger several
times, e.g.

ledger bal -p "until 2021-02-01"
ledger bal -p "until 2021-03-01"
ledger bal -p "until 2021-04-01"
...

Indeed, that is a solution. To be honest, it did occur to me, but then I have to do some formatting myself... ;)
