I have my stop loss set for 40 ticks on NQ and it has worked fine for many weeks but yesterday it started placing my stops at 40 points instead of 40 ticks from my entry. Same thing for my profit targets. I have attached a screen shot so you can see my settings.

Any ideas what is going on?

Thanks

First thing to check is the tick size of the chart and make sure it is set correctly:

Chart Settings: Tick Size (Chart >> Chart Settings >> Symbol menu)


And make sure you are setting these Attached Orders on the correct Trade Window:
Basic Trading and the Trade Window: Trade Window Settings Not Applying to Chart or Trading DOM

I have changed the tick size from 0.25 to 1 because I cannot see the number bars at a tick setting of 0.25 on NQ. Obviously this is what has caused the problem . How best do I solve this? Thank you

Do not change the Tick Size.

To adjust the Numbers Bars to consolidate prices together, use the Chart >> Chart Settings >> Chart Data >> Volume at Price Multiplier for Intraday Charts and set this to a number greater than 1 (try 10 to start and adjust up/down as needed). Refer to the information here:
Chart Settings: Volume at Price Multiplier for Historical/Intraday Chart (Chart >> Chart Settings >> Chart Data menu)

If you do change the Tick Size, then you just need to set the Offset Type to "Price Offset" for Attached Orders and use that.
