Using NonCL version 1091, SC Historical Data, Replay. The DailyPL on the trade window does not update, never changes from 0 ticks. Trade window display is in ticks. Running under MintLinux 16 and using Wine 1.7

Update: It looks like it might be a scaling problem. After simulated trades with a large loss, the DailyPL goes to -1.

OK,switched from Ticks to Points for PL displays. DailyPL is scaled by incorrectly; a trade loss of 2.0 P => DailyPL change of 0.08P.

One thing to keep in mind is that if the Position transitions over the Global Settings >> General Trade Settings >> Daily Stats Reset Time, it will not affect the Daily Profit/Loss and also the Daily Profit/Loss will reset at that time.

For the problem with the large loss, we will need to get your TradeActivityLog.dat file. It can be privately attached here.

What we need you to do is configure the settings at the top of the Trade >> Trade Activity Log to list the fills which cause the Daily Trades Total Profit/Loss as shown on the Trade Statistics tab to be incorrect and let us know what those settings are.

False alarm. I had updated to the latest version that uses the new Historical SC data but had not changed the chart symbol to correspond. When I changed the chart symbol from ESH4 => ESH14 the problems went away. I apologize for wasting your time.
