pos = Trade.sum("quantity", :conditions => {:buyer_id=>34}, :group => "traded_item_id")
neg = Trade.sum("quantity", :conditions => {:seller_id=>34}, :group => "traded_item_id")
pos.merge(neg){ |key, oldval, newval| oldval-newval }

The value that comes out is not the custom merge, but plain old:

To put this in a bit more context,
pos = #2}>
neg = #4}>

So yeah, I've been using ruby on rails for about a year, and would love to help. So if someone could tell me where to start on this, I'd love to solve this for you guys. Thanks!
