Newbie question: Profit/Loss figures in ProRealtime dont make sense?


DMS1975

Question

This may be a stupid question, but I am starting to use ProRealtime and BackTesting my trading strategies.

In the 'Detailed View', when I review all of the trades the system has made automatically, some dont seem to make sense.  For instance one trade opened a long position on 18 Jan (10,000 stocks at £2.2435 = £22,435.00).  on 25 Jan it closed this positon (sold 10,000 at £2.2585 = £22585.00).  In terms of profit/loss for this trade it tells me that I made a loss 0f £520.00!

Surely 22585 minus 22435 = a profit of £150?

 

I havent set any other parameters re broker fees etc.

 

What am I missing here?
