Hello,

I have been trying to get the correct PNL to appear while I trade using the Trading DOM, but currently still is showing me incorrect PNL.

In pictures provided, I am long 13000 contracts, and my PNL shouldnt be nowhere near +$13000.

I attached an image of the settings I set, as I read many board posts to try to solve this. No luck on my end unfortunately.

I would also like to ask since I'm here.. How can I save the layout I currently have for my trading DOM? If I try opening a new trading DOM, it is a blank and brand new trading dom with none of my settings/colors saved on the layout I have on the first Picture

In regards to post #1, refer to:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/ProfitLossCalculationsAndSymbolSettings.php

You need to focus on the Currency Value per Tick setting.

For the second question, refer to:

Hello, I have followed all steps for this, but for some reason I am stillnot getting the correct PNL.

In pictures provided, I display the position I took a short from 7923, covered at 7907(a winning short position) and for some reason my Daily PNL still comes out to negative(the negative calculation I received was also incorrect. It shouldnt be .08 BTC)

Please help

Do you know what the Currency Value Per Tick should be for XBTUSD on BitMex?

We will check with them on this.

I believe you currently have it correct: 5e-09. I'm just not sure why its constantly giving me the wrong PNL. if it was the correct number, thatd be one thing. But for it to be giving me the wrong side (+ or -) and wrong number, its a pain to constantly have to check my bitmex page. Please assist me as I have been using SC for a long time now, and plan to. This would make my trading a lot better if I didnt have to spend ~1-2min checking up on my PNL on bitmex.
