MC 7.4, signal reporting error profit / loss of position

Postby johnmok » 08 Jan 2012

after upgrading to MC 7.4, when i apply signal to the chart, i' ve got wrong results on the chart as shown below.

i just applied simple strategy to the chart , the channel breakout le and se.

in the yellow circle, you can see that the profit trade shown as a loss, and there are many more examples throughout the chart, hope to get some help, thanks everyone.

John,

Perhaps it's brokerage.

thanks for your reply, for the case inside the yellow circle.

the buying price is 17571, and the sell price is 17657, HKD$50 for each point.

commision is HK$19.1, and slippage is set at HK$100, so for this trade, the profit should be

$4300 - $238.2 = HK$4061.8

after reading your reply, i check the trade one by one in the performance report, and find that

MC is using HKD$10@pt for my manually impoted ASCII futures, so my new question becomes

How can i change the setting of the contract so that i can make it $50@point?

thanks Neil!
