IB Unrealized P/L Problem

  1. I was in a trade this morning and noticed that IB was showing a positive unrealized P/L while my automated system was showng a negative. I realize that the IB number does not include commissions and my system does but the difference the two was large (100$~when commis is only about 10$). Has anyone else noticed this?
  2. I too, have an "unrealized P&L" problem

    i have no position at all and yet i have 800 bucks unrealized P&L in MARKET VALUE section of ACCOUNT window

    if the problem doesn't go away with the reseting of the year-to-date forex mess in PORTFOLIO section on January 1er, i'll kiss IB goodbye:cool:
  3. there has been another poster here on ET complaining about the same.

    I do notice discrepancies while trading depending if I got in before RTH and have had to log out and back in again.

    Better in the unrealized P&L though than in the real balance which is OK as far as I have observed it.
