Showing Commission&Slippage in the Order & Position Tracker

Postby Adrian Uncle » 17 May 2016

Hi there,

Is there a way to display the commission and slippage in the Trades Summary of Order & Position Tracker?

The current net profit is not correct. We need to subtract the commission per trade x number of lots traded. It will be awesome if we are also able to view the total slippage.

Hello Adrian,

Trades Summary is generated based on the actual order fill price from the Order and Position Tracker Orders tab. Unfortunately there is no way to have the commission/slippage values shown as they are not streamed by the broker.

Henry,

Thanks for your reply. Does the broker stream the number of lots traded as this is also very important?

You can see the "Quantity Filled" under the Orders tab of the Order and Position Tracker window.

Henry,

Since the quality filled is available, is it possible to include the total lots traded in the Trade Summary? It will be one additional line added to the summary instead of users select multiple tabs to obtain the required info.

"Total # of Trades" is already present in the Trades Summary.

Henry,

Please correct me if I am wrong. Does the total #of trades equal the number of lots filled?
For 1 trade, I can have 2 lots or 10 lots. Currently, the trade summary shows only the number of trades. I can have 70 trades at 1 lot per trade i./e. 70 lots filled or 35 trades at 2 lot per trade.

I am sorry but I am confused.

Hello Adrian,

I see what you mean now. Thank you for your suggestion. This is something we are going to add in MultiCharts 10.0 Beta 2.
