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

Guest DMS1975


Guest DMS1975

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?

    • Hi,  I started trading Brent Crude Oil in IG platform but I could find a formula to correctly calculate the size I have to put while creating a position, based on the available amount I have. The quotation is based in points and it makes me wonder how operate. Any help is welcome.  Also, I plan to work with some leverage in the future, so any tip on this matter is also welcome.  Thanks.

    • Update - I am trying to transfer the existing Polymetal shares with IG.com to Wood & Co. Has anyone tried this or are in the process? You will need a bank account with bank in EU or Revolut bank app. The form for requesting transfer is on https://polymetal.wood.com/form/individuals
