HI,I HAVE TROUBLE GETTING THE ORDER QUANTITY SETTINGS RIGHT FROM SIERRA CHARTS I OPENED 2 LIVE TEST POSITIONS WITH A $15 STOP LOSS WITH A NET LOSS OF -15.71AUD,
HOWEVER THE ACTUAL LOSS REFLECTING IN FXCM TRADE STATION IS -229.81AUD.I HAVE ATTACHED TWO IMAGES SHOWING THIS ,YOU CAN SEE THE LOSS IN THE TRADE ACTIVITY LOG AS
-15.71AUD(AS INTENDED) AND ALSO IN THE FXCM TRADE AS -229.81 AUD.

IAM AWARE OF ORDER QUANTITY FROM FXCM AND I WAS USING THE CHART TRADING DOM WITH BRACKET ORDERS ALREADY SET. SO I JUST INPUT NUMBER OF TICKS FOR STOP LOSS AND
THEN I ADJUST ORDER QUANTITY ACCORDING DOLLAR VALUE BEING GENERATED BESIDES THE STOP PARAMETERS

DOING THIS RESULTS IN BIGGER ACTUAL POSITION BECAUSE THE ORDER QUANTITY SUGGESTED BY THE DOLLAR VALUE FROM STOP LOSS IS WAY OUT.HOW CAN I SOLVE THIS ERROR?
PLEASE FIND BOTH IMAGES ATTACHED

The question is what is the currency value per tick for USOil on FXCM. We have to check on that.
