    unrealized/realized valuta symbol wrong currency

    in the strategies tab pnl realized and unrealized does not follow the valuta for the instrument traded.
    erroneously the valuta symbol for the current culture currency symbol is displayed.
    Instead it sould just read the currency of the Instrument.

    See picture: for ZB future the currency Eur is displayed.

    If you choose th display the EUR currency there, then you should also provide an automatic conversion from USD to EUR instead of just using a 1:1 conversion factor.
    Think of your Zen - Ninja background: If you had Yen as local currency all your PNL would indicate YEN , so using your conversion fator of 1:1 gives a completely wrong result because 1 USD is ca. 80 YEN.

    The correct way to do is to do a currency conversion based on the current exchange rate. I think everyone would just be happy with one update of this value per day.


    Please update your PNL calculations to include multiple currencies... so that one can start doing some portfoglio managment also..

    Best regards

      I'm facing the same issue. It's not a big deal, just a bit annoying. Fore example NT shows me I earned 130 €, in reality I earned 130 USD.

      The single correct way to do this is to get the actual account statement data via the broker's API.

      Is it possible to change the display mode to USD?
