Re: Swing showing number of pips

Hi   I presume you are on the MT4 platform as I don't think the IG new or old has zig-zag. ProRealTime has a measuring tool ruler.

I have not seen a zig-zag with a measuring tool built in but you can use the cross-hairs on mt4 to measure bars sideways and pipettes up or down as well as price price.  See video.

Thanks Caseynotes for answering. I am using ProRealtime Platform, there is Zig Zag indicator there. I try to get number of pips to show on the swing line, it does not have to be a Zig Zag indicator. There are shown in other future platforms, but not in IG Prorealtime.

Thanks. Jim

Good Afternoon Caseynotes,


Thanks very much for your help. Actually you did help me solving the question, I can now use Ruler in ProRealTime Tool to draw and viewing numbers of pips in the chart.


Thanks again.

    • Hi, I have encountered a discrepancy between my theoretical PnL calculation and the PnL reported in my trade history. I would appreciate some assistance in understanding the difference. Here are the details of the trade: Currency Pair: USD/MXN Number of Contracts: 10 Contract Size: 100,000 USD Opening Price: 17.79107 Closing Price: 17.97692 Reported PnL: $10,283.10 Conversion Rate Used: 0.0553301262247 USD/MXN Theoretical PnL Calculation: Change in Price: 17.97692 - 17.79107 = 0.18585 MXN/USD PnL per Contract: 0.18585 * 100,000 = 18,585 MXN Total PnL in MXN: 18,585 * 10 = 185,850 MXN Converted PnL in USD: 185,850 / 17.97692 ≈ $10,338.2 Considering the theoretical PnL is approximately $10,338, I am trying to understand why the reported PnL is $10,283.10. I noticed that when I multiply the PnL in MXN by the conversion rate used, I find the reported PnL, . but I do not understand where this value comes from. Could you please help me clarify how the conversion rate of 0.0553301262247 USD/MXN was determined and why it differs from the typical market rates around the time of the trade? Thank you very much!
