Description

The window of the trade (on the chart) when it is set to an amount, displays the value in $ that is completely false when trading other than USD (like EUR/JPY, AUD/NZD, etc, ...)

Steps to reproduce this issue

Open a position on the forex market, on a pair like USD/JPY or all the pairs without USD on the second money. You can see that the P&L displayed on the trade window will show something wrong... Example : GBP/JPY Sell 100K @ 135,88 The P&L shows $20 200.00 when price reach 135,63... It's maybe 20 200 Yen ???...

MBT does not return P&L on your position and account through API. That's why we calculate it ourselves. You should treat "$" not as "dollars" but "money". Profit is calculated in the currency of traded symbol. I am turning this report into a feature request.
