Balance

Syntax:

[YYYY-MM-DD] balance ACCOUNT AMOUNT [COMMODITY]

Explanation:

  • ACCOUNT can be the full name in your ledger file, or they can be the abbreviations you set before;

Examples:

// Input
balance bofa 360
// Output

// Input with simpler date format. Because Beancount applies the time of all non-transaction directives at the beginning of its date, we usually use the next day for this directive. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1wAMVrKIA2qtRGmoVDSUBJGmYZSygUaR0uOMW1GV3YE0/edit#heading=h.l0pvgeniwvq8
