Trading Performance Report: 1 trade divided in several

Postby Fabrice » 02 Dec 2012

Manual Trading Perf. Report (MTPR) splits 1 trade (made Friday) of 10 lots in 2 trades of 9 + 1 lots (see e_Pict1).
The trade is actually
- entry : 1 order of 10 lots shorted at 5:17:29 PM
- exit : 1 order to cover all at 5:24:34 PM
The actual trade is seen in the Orders tab of the OPT (see e_Pict2).

The last line of the MTPR is a long position (1 lot) opened Friday at 6:31 pm when MC was not running, that I will close on Monday.

The MTPR is not readable because this "split" affects the lines before (such as a trade made on 11/13 displayed as 2 trades of 8 and 2 lots, instead of 1 trade of 10 lots).

Hello Fabrice,

That is expected behavior.
Manual Trading Performance Report splits 1 trade of 10 lots because you have opened a new position when MultiCharts was closed. MC has added an order for 1 contract in order to synchronize the open position with orders history. In the latest version of MultiCharts (8.5 beta 1) a pop-up message was added to inform the user that discrepancy was found and synthetic order has been added to the report. In the next beta the order name in the report will be shown as "Position Matching".

Does it means that 8.5 beta 2 will produce a report that remains consistent (the position opened without MC would not have changed the report) ?

If the position is opened when MultiCharts is closed then synthetic order will be added to the report.
MultiCharts should be open when you are placing an order from any other platform in order to have a consistent report without additional sync orders.
