I'm puzzled why 2 different trade windows on 2 different charts (1 min and 800 ticks) show different daily PnL for the same sim account? The contract is the same. Do I really even need a separate Trade Window for each chart even when the contract is the same? I simply would like to trade CL contract exactly with the same way (bracket, target, stop etc) on 2 different charts (1 min & 800 tick). Now the tick chart trade window shows trades & daily PnL correctly, but 1 min chart trade windows daily PnL is behaving real odd, eg after a profitable trade the Daily PnL decreases! even when it shows the same trade and same, correct real-time trade P/L. Please advice. Thanks.

P.S. I uploaded a screenshot pic but can't see where it is...

Thank you for that image. It was very helpful. The problem is you have a different Position Profit/Loss format which is also used by the Daily Profit/Loss value, between the two different charts. Refer to:
