    Unrealized PnL always shows $0.

    Hello NT Support,

    Can you please tell if I am missing a setting in NT.

    I have attached a screen scrape of an open Short position of EURUSD that has an unrealized PnL of 5 ticks, yet the Control Center always shows $0 PnL on the Positions Tab.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello,

    Thank you for your note.

    Depending on your data provider you will want to enter forex data in one of two methods, either unit size or lot size. Using whole integer values would mean you are trading full lot sizes, but you can trade forex by specifying the following quantities, which if you are using the sim101 account I would recommend that you use unit sizes.

    A standard lot is equal to .1M
    A mini lot is equal to .01M
    A micro lot would then be 1000.

    This will be the unit size, and represent the total number of units located within a lot size, either standard, mini, or micro, and this should affect the account performance since a whole integer of unit sizes may not calculate based on the smallness of the unit sizes.
