Why does my stop loss appear to be a smaller figure than that which I specified in the program setup?

This is because you have checked the “Include fees in Profit/Loss calculations” option in Program Setup. Essentially your stop loss takes into account any fees you incurred as a part of the trade and is not based solely on the contract value. To change this is not recommended however the option is available for you to do so. Do this by going to Program Setup, select the Default Settings tab, and de-select the checkbox adjacent to “Include fees in Profit/Loss calculations. NOTE: These settings also affect the profit target figures in the same fashion!
