Ok if:

1.4012 = 1/10,000th
1.401256 = 1/100,000th

what does:

1.40125 = ???

Was a type-o due to lack of sleep.

1.4012 = 1/10000 = regular futures
1.40125 = 1/100000 = forex like mbtrading with fractional pip

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

I've just been with MC support through the very issue the OP is reporting.

They told me that you need to set the BPV to what the USD would equal 1 JPY.

Asking for clarification they responded that since 0.0123 USD = 1 JPY I would have to set BPV to that.

However they obviously don't check their own answers since 0.0123 is not possible to enter into that field since it only accepts to 2 decimal places.

I have found through their issue tracking system that they recommend 1 BPV for USD based pairs. This obviously correlates with the first answer they gave me, since 1 BPV = 1 USD for USD based pairs.

I can't work out how to show correct PNL for non-USD based pairs and crosses though. Even then I don't want to have to update the BPV every day.

You are correct, it's currently not possible to set more than 2 decimal places in that field. Support was also correct to tell you that: "you need to set the BPV to what the USD would equal 1 JPY" in order to display the values in dollars instead of JPY. However, since entering 0.0123 is clearly not possible at the moment, you need to BPV = 0.01 to get the approximate results. We will likely improve this feature in the future.
