Description

In Order and Position Tracker/Accounts tab/Margin column the "Projected Look Ahead Initial Margin" is displayed for IB accounts. As Current Maintenance Margin and/or Current Initial Margin might be considered to be even more relevant for open positions, I suggest to implement an option to display these values instead.See also http://www.multicharts.com/discussion/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=47381

Steps to reproduce this issue

Connect MultiCharts to IB TWS
Buy/Sell a Futures contract which has different values for initial/maintenance/overnight margins, e.g. YM, ES
Go to Order and Position Tracker
The value referenced in the Margin column reflects the Projected Look Ahead Initial Margin, not the current margin (refer to IB TWS for comparison).
