Measure flatlines after source column has no more data

I'm using measures to show the running total of costs, from the "Eur Equiv" column (formula below).
One issue is that the measure "flatlines" on its total after the current month (when there is no more values in the "Eur Equiv column"). 
Is it possible to stop the measure once the date goes past Now() ?
 
EUR Total - Actual =
CALCULATE (
SUM ( [EUR Equiv] ),
FILTER (
ALLselected ( 'Calendar'[Year/Month] ),
'Calendar'[Year/Month] <= MAX ( 'Calendar'[Year/Month] )
),'Budget Actual'[Budget,Actual]="Actual"
)

So generally you could do something like:

 

EUR Total - Actual =
VAR __myCalc =
CALCULATE (
SUM ( [EUR Equiv] ),
FILTER (
ALLselected ( 'Calendar'[Year/Month] ),
'Calendar'[Year/Month] <= MAX ( 'Calendar'[Year/Month] )
),'Budget Actual'[Budget,Actual]="Actual"
)
RETURN
IF(MAX('Calendar'[Date])>NOW(),BLANK(),__myCalc)

Try replace  'Calendar'[Year/Month] <= MAX ( 'Calendar'[Year/Month] ) to 'Calendar'[Year/Month] <=NOW()

 

EUR Total - Actual = 
CALCULATE ( 
SUM ( [EUR Equiv] ),
FILTER (
ALLselected ( 'Calendar'[Year/Month] ),
'Calendar'[Year/Month] <=NOW()
),'Budget Actual'[Budget,Actual]="Actual"
)
