Description

The display of the open P/L on a chart is not really correct as the open P/L is calculated by the difference between the average entry price and the last price.
 
Unfortunately, it is not correct to use the last price to calculate the current P/L but for an open SELL position one should use the current ask price as to flatten such a position a buy order is necessary and the best buy price is in that case the ask price. Similary, the best price to flatten an open buy position is the bid price. Therefore please add at least an option to use the mentioned reference prices to calculate the open P/L.
 

Steps to reproduce this issue

Use MCDT 7.1.70.201 Beta 1 on a PC with Windows XP Professional SP3 and an Open E Cry demo account.
