You might want to start here:
Likely the SQL report will be sufficient.
Otherwise, look into the income statement. What you seem to want is an
income statement over a particular period of time, something like this:
select account, sum(position) where date >= 2016-09-01 group by account
There's no arithmetic operations yet (I started, but it's unfinished), so
you'll have to enter the date for now.

You would write your own reports script to invoke it (I haven't provided a
way to register just a report class, not sure if it's wanted, nobody asked
