Works fine, but you can't open as default chart template. There is an issue and you will not able to use it if saved as your default template, even if you try to remove and add again.

Finally I found what I need. The calculator allows me to quickly estimate potential loss (on the percentage or cash) in the account currency. Works correctly regardless of the currency pair, the number of decimal places provided by the broker. Definitely helps me to entering transactions in accordance with my strategy. I highly recommend.

Version 2.0 - 2015.02.04
Stop Loss is now implemented in points so that no conversion is needed on 5 or 3 digit charts. So for a 5 or 3 digits chart, a 20 pips Stop Loss would be 200 points.
