Here is the relevant documentation for Daily Profit/Loss:
http://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/DailyProfitLossValue.html


You can see all of the Daily Profit/Loss values on the Trade Statistics for Charts tab:
http://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/TradeActivityLog.php#TradeStatisticsForChartsTab


The Daily Profit/Loss reset for each chart is not going to automatically occur at a fixed time immediately across all symbols. It would only be when the particular symbol has a trade or quote update in the new trading day. We will see if we can improve upon that.

We are not sure what it is you are trying to express in post #4. We see the Daily Profit/Loss value at 0 for each of the charts in the attached screenshot.

The problem lies in the fact that the PnL from past trading days is being used in the Global Profit/Loss tool in future trading days when trading the same symbols. Which in turn does not allow me to use the Global Profit/loss tool. It would be key to only use the current trading day only. I have attached screenshots for review.

The Open Profit/Loss is still going to be used in the calculation if that is what you are referring to.

If the Open Quantity is wrong on the Trade Stats for Charts tab, then refer to the instructions here about this:
