How do i set correct cumulative profit/loss for EURUSD to be shown in Trade Windows?

From Chart Setting, under Advanced Setting 2, I set currency value per tick = '10' and Value per points in tick = '1' but the cumulative profit/loss is wrong, always displaying decimal point irregardless of value per point in tick.

Please advice.

TQ

The correct Currency Value per Tick in this case is 0.00005. It needs to match the Tick Size.

Your solution is NOT correct.

If i put currency value per tick = 0.00001 to match tick size for EURUSD at 0.00001, then every tick value is 0.00001 and the cumulative profit/loss still displaying decimal point.

Therefore, the correct value for currency per tick has to be in '10' value to match 0.00001 of tick size for EURUSD.

Please advice how to solve cumulative profit/loss to be displayed accordingly.

TQ.

The problem is you are not trading EURUSD in the correct quantity. You need to use a larger quantity. What is the order quantity you are using?
