Post From: Trade activity log shows P&L of charted symbol vs Traded symbol
|User466737 - Posts: 17|
I'm experimenting trading a symbol based on chart quotes for another symbol. In this example, I have Gold in chart driving the trades for Silver futures. When I run a simulation, the trade activity log shows trade stats on all tabs based on Gold prices.
For instance The average entry price being 1282 and Average exit price being 1286 yields a difference of $4. The PL shows the profit as $20k (4*5000), 5000 being notional for Silver. I was expecting to see Silver prices instead of Gold prices, any setting I'm overlooking or am I misunderstanding the concept of trade symbols vs charted symbols in chart settings.
Note, I'm using a remote instance on the same machine as main.
