Question Wrong Open Profit Loss Display

Hi, I have a problem with the DOM in NT 6.5, I don't know if I have something missconfigured or is an issue of the software.

When placing a Long position, the Display of Open Profit Loss shows correctly the tics/$/% of profit or loss since the order is executed, including the spread.

But, when placing a Short position, the Display ignores the spread, so it shows the position at breakeven inmediatly after executed, and in profit with the first tick in my favor, no matter the spread is 2, 3 or more tics.

I'd like to know if there's something I can do to solve this.

Thanks.

No, I don't. After reading your answer I checked the box to try but is the same. I tried closing and opening NT afther checking the mark but nothing changed.

Several things -

1) Do you have under Tools > Options > "Apply PnL..." enabled? If yes, this will affect the PnL

2) In our recent release, using the Dynamic DOM for FX at MBT is not supported. If you are on the recent release, you likely had a legacy DOM open with a currency instrument loaded. If you open a new one, you will see you do not have the ability to select an FX instrument.

I suggest trying in the FX Pro window, all PnL calcs are as expected in my tests. You can easily check this as well by looking at reported PnL in NT vs MBT Navigator. The cash values for open PnL of a position are identical.
