You should be getting some indication of P/L, but it might not be in currency. What exactly are you seeing?

Also, refer to the following for how to set the P/L display:
Chart Settings: Profit/Loss Format (Chart >> Chart Settings >> Trading menu)

when I place a trade it shows the number of contracts
ie:
2@.958.15 but the PL changes from red to green or vice versa as price changes

same for NPL, only color change, but no dollar amount of gain or loss

I have the format set to Currency value (C) & points (P)

Check the setting for Trade >> Chart Trade Settings >> General >> Display Profit/Loss on Position Line and make sure it is set to Yes.

Also check the setting for Trade >> General Trade Settings >> General >> Common Profit/Loss Currency and ensure it is set to a particular currency.

John I think it could be in the symbol settings

So, I just switched to the 6E and I thnk its the same currency pair I was using, and by going to 6E it now shows the PL and NPL, thanks again

Can you give us a screenshot of what you see with EURUSD? When we use this symbol we get the P/L display unless the above options are not set.
