Pip values at stoploss and limits
I'm not sure if this was mentioned before, but after the last update, the pip values at stops and targets don't show anymore. It's not a trainsmash really but it was nice to see at a glance previously. Can one of you awesome people have a look at that.
Hello GB1, and thank you for your post! On behalf of myself and everyone here at FXCM, welcome to the forum community!
Why has the "In Pips" for stop and limit order tags from the charts been removed?
We removed this feature because of display issues that existed for some accounts. We had to remove this from the new version of the charts in order to ensure the calculations are correct across all order types and account position maintenance settings.
To ensure accurate and consistent data is shown, the amount of pips has been removed in the latest version. Instead of displaying distance in pips, you will now see the rate itself when you move the stop / limit lines on the chart.
We apologize for any inconvenience this causes you, and I will pass along your feedback to see if we can bring that feature back in future versions. I can tell you right now that it is very likely that this feature will return, although I would not be able to tell you when. For now what I would recommend is what my colleague Rob at FXCM recommended and use the built in ruler tool if you would like to estimate how far the stop / limit is away from your entry. One thing that I also do is measure distances on the charts in terms of pips with the ruler tool before I place my orders. Additionally, I highly encourage to always have a calculator handy when working with the platform. Calculating the difference of prices in terms of pips is fast and easy.

It looks like forum member meini has created an indicator that will show your stops and limits on the charts in terms of pips. Please click here to see his indicator.
