I only trade cryptocurrencies and maker/taker fees are important as they are higher than regular stock exchanges.
For Bitmex:
Maker Fee is -0.0250%
Taker Fee is 0.0750%  
Long Funding Fee is 0.0143%  
Short Funding Fee is -0.0143%  
These are calculated 8 hours basis. How can I define these commission by using global settings>symbol settings>Additional>Round Turn Commission field?
Is there a workaround?

No it is not. We will see about that later on in the year.

Is there any update regarding % commission? It is very important for FX trading as most of the brokers such as LMAX are taking commissions abov nominal value of trades and it destroy P/L calculation badly.

I also trade via LMAX and they charge % commission on each buy and sell transaction. Sierra profit calculation is becoming useless without this feature.
This feature would make life easier for LMAX traders.

I open a trade with 20 ticks (2 pip stops away) which might have 2m$ position size which requires me to pay 200$ to open and close the position due to lmax fee.
I do not see this in my P/L calculation and trade statistics.

Dear support,
What is required to be able to have such a crucial feature for an FX trader in high leveraged exchanges with significant commission %s?

If you don't have a plan to add % commission, could you please let me know If we can do this via a custom study?
Basically I need % commission to be included in all P/L calculations of my trades.
