Is there any reason for that? Smersh 1.17.2017 4:47am #141007 Participant 16 Posts Yes it should. What is the use of cents at least for futures trading? The problem with SQ displaying numbers is that they are difficult to read because the decimal places are not consistent. When looking at a list of numbers (e.g. PL) you will see this for example: 15071 15071.1 15071.34 The values are right justified so at a glance, which is the larger number? So It would help a lot if dollar values ALSO used a comma separator to get this: 15,071.00 15,071.10 15,071.34 If there was an argument for retaining the cents, then at least use zero-padding. Thanks tomas262 1.17.2017 6:56pm #141013 Moderator 2349 Posts Hello, yes, it does make sense for futures. I will forward this to developers so they can consider modifying the format http://tasks.strategyquant.com/issues/1418 Viewing 4 posts - 1 through 4 (of 4 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
