    MultiCurrency, PnL

    Hi, please, I tried trading different markets on demo and I am a bit confused by the values displayed - especially in terms of the currency of the values.

    Open Positions / Open PL
    Positions TAB - PnL - shows values in my local currency (Kč / Czech republic) but it should either EUR for European markets or USD for US markets. Or not?

    Closed Positions / Closed PL
    I close one position on ES and one on DAX with the following result:
    -6points ES: -6*50 USD = -300 USD
    -14point FDAX: -14*25 EUR = -350 EUR
    But the Accounts Tab show realized PnL of -650. No currency here but the EUR closed PL was not recalculated into USD. The platform has summarized EUR and USD values - which doesnt make any sense.

    Can you advise what to do. Am I doing something wrong or is it a bug?

    If a bug - how is this solved on live account when this will result in non-sense account value.

    Thanks, Robert

    Hello,

    Thank you for your post.

    Can you tell me what version of NinjaTrader you have installed which can be found under Help-->About and what data provider you are connecting to within NinjaTrader.

    I look forward to assisting you further with this issue.

      Version is 7.0.1000.9. I am connected to PFG. But this shouldnt matter as the simulation is on your side (just quotes are from PFG) or not?

          Hello,

          This is Brett following up for Chris.

          In NinjaTrader all values are displayed in USDollar. We use dollar for PnL and account performance values and we do not do any conversion.

          Even though the currency sign is not dollar it is still dollar for the PnL. If youy prefer it to show dollar in the superDOM you can change the instrument display currency to dollar.

          Control Center->Tools->Instrument Manager->Edit the instrument and change the Currency to Dollar.
