It seems like Global Profit and Loss shows 1/10th of the real loss!! I was trading ES, not MES and the Trade Log got my loss right, why is Global PNL different?

Updated to 2074 and did some SIM losses. Still the PNL for Global PNL management shows only 1/10th of the real loss. Looks like GlobalPNL-Mgmt. thinks I was trading MES instead of ES. How come these could differ? Is there anything to change this? I already resetted and re-activated GPNL-Mgmt without any diffence.

We apologize for the delay with this. We need a little more time to look this over. But check the Currency Value Per Tick in the charts in the Chart Settings used for trading.

Curreny value per tick is correct. I checked this already. If I would change it here - the Trade Activity Log would also show wrong numbers.

You need to check that value in the Chart >> Chart Settings for the particular chart that has a wrong profit/loss value. Refer to:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/ProfitLossCalculationsAndSymbolSettings.php

You can see all of the charts calculating a Trades list in the list here:

It's fine in the trades list. Only in Global PNL Management the numbers are wrong.

We need to understand this better. We need a full screenshot of the Trade Stats for Charts tab of the Trade Activity Log showing all of the Daily Net PL values.

And we need a screenshot of the profit/loss value you are referring to in the Global Profit/Loss Management window.

There simply cannot be any discrepancy between the two.

You can privately attach them here.

Attachement in post number 2 is not sufficient?

You are making a completely wrong comparison here:
https://www.sierrachart.com/Download.php?Folder=SupportBoard&download=37408

The Global Profit/Loss Management does not use the data from the Account Stats tab at all. That is completely irrelevant and has no connection at all. You need to look at the Trade Stats for Charts tab as we requested.

Refer to the documentation here:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/GlobalProfitLossManagement.php#HowDailyNetProfitLossIsCalculatedForATradeAccount

All of this has been very well documented for a long time now. Everything is there. Keep in mind, our time is very limited and this takes away time from our development when we are spending time on unnecessary support requests.
