When I place an order using "attached order" my stop loss calculation is displaying the currency/point value for only the first target. For instance, I enter a 3 lot position, the first target/stop is for 1 lot and has a stop value of 5 points and displays -25.00C (1.25 per tick). The second target/stop is for 2 lots and has the same stop value of 5 points, which is -50.00C but this value is not displayed or maybe its hidden below the other stop value? I would like the stop value to calculate and display for the full position size, which would be -75.00C on the 3 lots.

If you have the option for Trade >> Chart Trade Settings >> Working Orders >> Attached Order P/L Always set to Yes, then you should see the P/L on all attached orders.

There is also a setting for Attached Order P/L when Modifying, and we wonder if maybe you have this set to Yes and it is what you are seeing.

Refer to the information for these settings at the following link (the other setting is down a couple of sections):
Global Trade Settings Windows: Attached Order P/L When Modifying (Global Settings >> Chart Trade Settings >> Working Orders >> Working Orders - Display)

---

If the above does not explain your situation, then we will need to see a screenshot of what you are seeing.

Settings seem to be set correctly. I have attached an image to better illustrate the issue I am having.

John - SC Support,

Do you have any other suggestions on how to fix this issue. Hopefully you just missed my post.

You cannot do what you want because there are multiple stop orders at that price level. One of them is covering the others. You see just the loss value for one of them.

Not if there are multiple targets.
