    Anybody else watch this column? I can't figure out how it's calculating that figure much of the time. I just went from flat to long a stock and it showed negative numbers. Then I sold the stock back to flat and nothing showed in the column.
    Other times, it works as I'd expect it to.

    I couldn't find an explanation in the TWS docs. Anybody have an idea.

    IB P&L is definitely flawed and miscalculated. Click on
    P&L in TWS is unrealistic!! for details.

    PS: Even though it is said realized P&L ignores commission and fees , but the value is still miscalculated. There must be some bugs in the formula or TWS.
