Incorrect curency value per tick in FXCM CFDs

There are a bug in the profit/loss calculation for many CFDs. I think the problem is in the "Currency Value Per Tick" value for the symbols.

For example in the Sierra Chart default setup the FRA40 CFD have a 1.0 "Currency Value Per Tick", but if we look in the FXCM product guide we see that the FRA40 have a 0.1 value.

If I change manually the tick value for the necessary symbols the problem looks solved on the Trade Activity Log. But when I open a trade the problem remains in the real time p/l calculation, in the chart. For example when a I have a real (in the broker) open loss of 10€, the chart shows a loss of 100€.

Any solution?
