Spread is more than amount indicated

I'm trying to find out why the spread indicated is much more than when I open position. 

I bought 1 Bitcoin ($1) going short with current spread of 36 but as soon as I enter the position  my profit is already down by extra $30, so total amount of around minus $66

For example if I entered a position at 7,134 and exit at same price at 7134 I am suppose to be minus $36 but instead I am minus $66 dollars almost double the spread.

I am using RealTimePro and the position entered on the chart looks right to me but on the Scalping Order Book it's showing that extra 30 pips and Open Positions display showing the same thing.

Anyone know why?

Thanks in advance.
