Tr.Stop (Trailing Stop)

Indicates the Trailing Stop Distance (in pips).

Trailing Stop works as follows: If the market price moves UP for a Buy position/DOWN for a Sell position, then the Trailing Stop moves with the market price, following it at the pre-set distance. If the market price moves DOWN for a Buy position/UP for a Sell position, then the Trailing Stop remains fixed and, if the market price reaches the Trailing Stop price, the order will be executed.

 

Lot P/L

Profit or loss on a position (in pips) at the current moment. Is calculated for the position without taking into consideration number of lots.

Lot P/L is calculated according to the following formula:

Sell price - Buy price = Lot P/L

Example for 2 lots GBP/USD contract initially bought at 1.7505 then sold (closed) at 1.7540:
1.7540 (sell price) - 1.7505 (buy price) = .0035 positive pip difference = 35 pip profit

 

P/L

Gross profit or loss on a position (in pips) at the current moment

Calculating Direct Rate P/L (Profit/Loss)
P/L for direct rates is calculated as follows:
Formula: (Sell price - Buy price)* number of Lots = P/L

Example for 2 lots GBP/USD contract initially bought at 1.7505 then sold (closed) at 1.7540:
1.7540 (sell price) - 1.7505 (buy price) = .0035 positive pip difference = 35 pip profit * 2 lots = 70 pip profit

 

Calculating Indirect Rate P/L (Profit/Loss)
P/L for indirect rates is calculated as follows:
Formula: (Sell price - Buy price) * number of lots = P/L
Example for 1 lot USD/JPY contract initially bought at 120.50 then sold (closed) at 120.30:
120.30 (sell price) - 120.50 (buy price) = -.20 negative pip difference = 20 pip loss * 1 lot = 20 pip loss

Calculating Cross Rate P/L (Profit/Loss)
P/L for cross rates is calculated as follows:
Formula: (Sell price - Buy price)* number of lots = P/L
Example for 3 lots EUR/GBP contract initially sold at 0.6760 then bought (closed) at .6750:
0.6760 (sell price) - .6750 (buy price) = .0010 positive pip difference = 10 pip profit * 3 = 30 pip profit

 

Com

Total commission charged by the system at the opening of this position

 

Fee

Total amount of transaction fees charged by the system at the opening of this position

 

Roll

Total amount of premium applied to this position

 

Fut Roll Adj

Amount of future rollover adjustment (in system base currency).This column shows the total sum of the futures rollover adjustment applied during the trade's lifetime.

Future rollover adjustment=(first price of new feed-last price of old feed)*contract size*lots#. The sign of the adjustment depends on whether the new price is higher or lower than the last price of the preceding time interval feed and on the position direction – Buy or Sell.

Trade charge is an amount in the system base currency set on account for every instrument, paid per trade at position’s Opening or Closing, or at both Opening and Closing.

 

Net P/L

account. Positive P/L values have a green background; negative P/L values have a red background; zero P/L values have a white background.

Net P/L = Gross P/L - Commission - Transaction Fee +/- Overnight Rollover Fee +/-Dividends – Trade Charge.

Trade Open Time

Shows Date and Time when the corresponding trade has been initiated.

While the position’s (ticket’s) open time is updated every time a position is partially closed (since, in essence a new position (ticket) is created, with the new ticket ID), the trade open time remains unchanged, indicating the moment when the initial position (trade) originated.

I.e. Trade Open Time will differ from the position's Open Time only if the position has been partially closed. Otherwise these two values will be equal.
