I'm running an EA and MT4 Tester is calculating profit wrong.

My account is in MXN pesos. I have a SL of 3,000 ticks and a TP of 10,000 ticks (USD/MXN), tick value is $1 MXN peso. In tester i'm using a spread of 2 (not real, just to vaidate profit results). See examples here and file attached.

Line 1 and 2 shows a SL triggered with a difference of 3,000 points. For 1 Lot, the result should be -3000 -spread. 

Line 3 and 4 shows a TP triggered with a difference of 10,000 points. For 1 lot, the result shoud be 10,000 -spread.

Is it a bug or i'm doing something wrong? I don't want this to occur in real operations.

Please your help
