    Trade.ProfitPoints equals Trade.ProfitCurrency

    Hi. I've noticed when doing trade analysis that a trade's ProfitPoints is the same as ProfitCurrency in RC2. I've had to implement ProfitPoints as ProfitCurrency/Quantity for now.

    thanks

    Hello Filipeh,

    Thank you for your note.

    What instrument are you applying this to? For example ES 12-16 or SPY.

    I look forward to your reply.

      I've last noticed it on TNA. Not sure if other instruments are affected.

        Hello Filipeh,

        It would be expected that ProfitPoints is the same as ProfitCurrency when using a stock. This would not be the case when looking at futures as futures, as ProfitCurrency=ProfitPoints*TickSize. Stocks tick value is 1 cent while futures are multiplied by a factor, for example $50 for the ES.

          Thanks

          According to documentation, this is not true. I am having to calculate unit profit by dividing ProfitCurrency by Quantity. This behaviour change has affected code that works in NT7.They should not be the same as per documentation.

          ProfitPips
          A double value representing profit in pips for one traded unit.
          ProfitPoints
          A double value representing profit in points for one traded unit.
          ProfitTicks
          A double value representing profit in ticks for one traded unit.
