Mixed currencies in trading statistics

Hi, guys.

Sorry to bother you with such a minor problem, but I couldn't find a solution myself.

I trade mostly futures, but sometimes I do trades in forex. I did only 2 small trades in USD/JPY last year and, obiviously, I get trading statistics in both currencies together (USD for futures and JPY for forex). For instance, my total P/L in USD/JPY is 7400 JPY, which adds to P/L from futures (which is around 2 000 USD), so if I select "All symbols", I get statistics in both USD and JPY, and I can't exclude those 2 trades to get overall statistics in all other symbols except USD/JPY. Is there any way to delete these trades or exclude them from the overall statistics, or just show overall statistics in all other symbols except USD/JPY? Without USD/JPY trades the statistics would change dramatically, since there would not have been huge JPY numbers.

I tried to set common P/L currency to USD, but it didn't change anything. I use IB as a broker.

I hope my question is more or less clear.

Thank you.

I would make a backup of your SC folder before you do anything, but you can delete them, go to Trade>>Trade Activity Log and select USD/JPY, then highlight all related trade activity and then click edit>>delete trade activity. Second option you could also try to manually edit the trades to arrive at the correct USD value by clicking Edit>>Edit Trade Activity. Third option, you could try F5>>Edit Global Symbol Settings and manually change the tick value for the instrument, although I've never done that before so I don't know if that will work or not.

This was the first thing I did, trying to fix it. It seems that it removes only trades, but the statistics stays the same. I didn't do any backup, so I can't go back and edit these trades now.

You can permanently delete the order fills which you do not want to include in the market statistics. This can be done with Edit >>Delete Trade Activity Entry. You actually need to delete the order Fills. Not only the Order activity entries.
