For some reason i cannot get the P&L on my Trade Window to include commissions.

I'm using SC Exchange Data Service currently, routing through CQG (waiting for SC Routing to be set up). Symbol is F.US.CLEH20.

Chart>Chart Settings>Advanced Settings> Profit/Loss Format: Currency Value (C)

Global Settings>Symbol Settings>F.US.CLE?## - Round Turn Commission has a value of 4.34, an asteric next to it, and I have selected "Custom" below.
Use Global Round Turn Commission is not selected.

Thank you. The Round Turn Commission setting was already set.

It is also necessary that when you want to use the custom Symbol Settings in Global Settings >> Symbol Settings that you have the Use Custom Symbol Settings Values enabled.

Where do i find "Use Custom Symbol Settings Values"?

Thank you.
Yes that too is checked, but it still wasn't giving me commissions in the DPL.

I will be routing through SC instead of CQG starting today so let me see what happens today and i'll report back.

Unfortunately the DPL on the Trade Window is still not including commissions for me.

I was wondering if there's any update available on this?

I believe I've covered all the documentation, but cannot get the commissions included in my DPL on the Trade Window.
