Issue with Total Net Profit reporting in NT7


I noticed that the Total Net Profit, and basically all the Profit fields (only in) Currency amount on my Foreign Exchange trading are completely wrong.

Could it be that NT7 calculations are based on the TickSize?

for example in EURUSD TickSize should be probably 1 pip, hence 0.0001, whilst I receive prices from my broker in 0.00005, hence I've set the TickSize to 0.5pip

Am I the only guy having problems with the Profit reported by NT? BTW, this issue occurs only when trading crosses that don't have USD as term currency, for example EURJPY, or EURAUD

Please help!
