OpenPL calc wrong in order tracker

Postby horizon1231 » 10 Feb 2015

if position have JPY, then OpenPL will be wrong, actually its ¥ not $, but tracker' first column showing with $$$.
the third column calc is correct.

Hello horizon1231,

What exact version and build number of MultiCharts are you running? (in MultiCharts go to Help tab-> About)
Which instrument do you use?
Which currency you have selected in Format->Strategy Properties->Properties tab?
Which Order and Position Tracker Tab and Column are you referring to?
Please attach a full sized screenshot demonstrating this value.

If you want to see the account values in JPY then you need to select JPY in MultiCharts-> File-> Preferences-> Trading-> Preferred currency.

hey Henry

whats wrong with you? Is my english too bad :)

my purpose is to give you where's the problem of order tracker, according to the image I uploaded,
obviously in picture,the OpenPL calculation is wrong,it didn't exchange JPY to USD, the true result should be 1.55USD .

my purpose is not to see account value in JPY.

OANDA does not provide the PnL via API, therefore no PnL value will be shown starting from MultiCharts 9.0 Release 7.
