The P/L Open, Year, Percent, & Day for positions is viewed on the Monitor tab, Activity and Positions, Position Statement. You can also create a watchlist for current positions and put those P/L items as a column. On some of the charts, like the Active Trader tab if you select a chart with a current open position, on the bottom there will pop up a Position tab with the same info as the monitor tab for the current selected chart or charts on that tab.
Thanks rmejia, but I supposed what you've mentioned only applies to "existing" open trades right?
I'm actually looking for ways to preview the potential "P/L Open" upon order entry (before order is Confirm & Send). Doing so allows me to setup a trade with a specific risk$ per trade, else how is anyone able to know how much would be loss/gain from the SL & TP?
I've also noticed the Active Trader "P/L Open" column only shows something after the trade was opened, pending trades doesn't show anything unfortunately.
Yes , the position indicator is only for open trades.
For "analyzing" a trade prior to execution there is the analyze tab. In Analyze Tab you can have a couple of "slices" (trade price, stop, target1, target2, etc.), and it will show you the P/L for the position when you input price or move around the lines in the graph. Don't know if you were looking for something simpler or automatic. You can setup or analyze a trade in the analyze tab then convert it into an order.

Thanks rmejia, never expect analyze tab to do the job. This would possibly be the only solution for me right now, though a little inconvenient but at least it seems to be doing the job. I hope TOS developers do something about this, it would be much better to include info about potential risk$ / gain$ when SL / TP are included, or even allow traders to trade based on % of account size.
