Indicators: 1. Open Position Points 2. Open Position Pips

These indicators are simplification modifications of the iexposure indicator.

  • Both indicators are in all functions exact except one is by default set to return [p] = Pips and the other [p] = Points.
  • Both indicators can display either Pips or Points depending on true/false status of [p_as_Points] option.

The MT4 terminal returns profit as a) Points or b) Term Currency or c) Deposited Currency. Points is consistent with MT4 Terminal, however, individual preference may favor Pips.

  1. The indicator must be placed in a secondary window such as a MACD or Stocastics window - note: the indicator will not display in the chart-primary window.
  2. If a second window is not in use attach Blank.mq4 as a secondary window. See above download files.
  3. Drag and drop indicator on secondary window. Display will appear only when a trade is opened.
  4. Increase/decrease width between columns: Use X_Distance_Multiplier option with small decimal increments - too large an increment, up or down, will result in indicator display shifting off-screen.

Example: [p]=Points:

  1. Profit-Loss [€]
  2. Lots - long[10.00 L] German Bund & short [-0.01 L] Dow-Industrial
  3. Points [p]
  4. Symbols [EuBundMar12...]

Example: [p]=Pips:

  1. Profit-Loss [£]
  2. Lots - all positions long [0.10 L]
  3. Pips [p]
  4. Symbols [EURUSD...]
