Post From: Symbol, Trade and Current Quote Symbol,Problems swtiching from MNQ to NM both in Cash/Sim

Question: If SC knows that "Trade and Current Quote Symbol" is being used why wouldn't it just fetch the correct "Currency Value per Tick" regardless of the "Auto Set from Data Feed' option? This seems to make sense especially for those using the "Global Profit/Loss Management". Thanks again!
We have looked into this and we see where the issue was and implemented a fix for it.

Changing the Auto Set from Data Feed seemed to fix the problem with my cash account but when I switch back to Sim mode its still trading on full NQ currency value of 5.0 even though I have "Trade and Current Quote Symbol" set at MNQ and the "Currency Value per Tick" at 0.5.
The reason for this is there is going to be one chart for the Symbol and Trade Account which is being used in the Profit/Loss calculation which does not have the right Currency Value Per Tick:


The Daily Net Profit/Loss is calculated separately for each Trade Account being used. A Chart or Trade DOM with the same Symbol and Trade Account as one already listed on the Trade Stats for Charts (Chart Stats) tab, will not be listed on the Trade Stats for Charts tab again unless it has a different Order Fills Start Date-Time for its Trades list. In any case, the Open Profit/Loss and the Daily Profit/Loss values are only counted once per Symbol and Trade Account when the Daily Net Profit/Loss is calculated for a particular Trade Account for the Global Profit/Loss Management.
