P/L Calculation

Setting Description
P/L Calculation

Sets the price type used for calculating your P/L per contract. Select one of the following P/L price types:

  • LTP Waterfall — The price type is determined by the following "waterfall" logic:

    1. Last Traded Price — If the LTP, Bid, and Ask prices are available, then TT checks if the LTP is within the Bid/Ask range, meaning LTP >= Bid and LTP <= Ask. If the LTP is within this range, then LTP is used as the P/L price.
    2. Midpoint — If the LTP is not with the Bid/Ask range, TT uses the midpoint price to calculate P/L. The Bid and Ask prices must be available to calculate the midpoint. If they exist, then the midpoint (i.e., (Bid + Ask)/2) is used as the P/L price.
    3. Bid/Ask — If only one side is available, i.e., there is only a Bid or only an Ask, and there is also a settlement price, then either the Bid or Ask is used as the P/L price if it's better than the Settle: If no Ask, but Bid > Settle, then Bid is used as the P/L price; if no Bid, but Ask < Settle, then Ask is used as the P/L price.
    4. Settle — If neither the Bid or Ask are available, then the settlement price is used as the P/L price.
    5. Close — If Settle is not available, then the Close price of the current session is used to as the P/L price.
  • Last — The Last Traded Price
  • Bid/Ask — The Bid price for long positions or Ask price for short positions
  • Midpoint — Midpoint of the Bid/Ask, i.e., (Bid + Ask) / 2
  • Open — The open price for the contract in the current trading session
  • Close — The closing price for the contract in the current trading session
  • Settle — The settlement price for the contract from the previous trading session
