    Decimal places for currency values should be fixed at zero for P/Ls (e.g. Net Profit, Drawdown) and two for all other (e.g. Avg Win)

    Hello,

     

    do you mean the Net profit should be always expressed as a whole number? Is there any reason for that?

    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

    Hello,

     

    yes, it does make sense for futures. I will forward this to developers so they can consider modifying the format
