In WealthSignal, Trades, and Alerts pages, the "Entry Price" "Exit Price" and (order) "Price" fields are rounding off the cent values. No decimal point is displayed, and no cents value is shown.

Backtests appear to be using the cents value. All extensions are up-to-date.

When posting the signals via WealthSignal, the alerts show up rounded to the dollar.

Any suggestions?

Could you take a screenshot and attach when replying? Would like to understand what are the Trades and Alerts pages, and how that rounding looks.

Is it possible that the Pricing Decimal Places in Advanced Options (F12) is set to zero?

Edit - Strike that. You said the charts are displayed the cents. Hmmm....

Per Cone's suggestion, I modified the "Pricing Decimal Places" parameter from zero to 2. The rounding issue has been corrected. Removed comment about the Charts.

Not sure how/when this parameter changed, since I never had to change it before. I ran the 32-bit version once recently, and updated the extensions, before running the 64-bit version again.

Good news - at least it's good that that was it. Other than deleting the WealthLabConfig.txt file (which would default to 2 decimals) I can't think of a way to change that setting other than through the Preferences though .. it must have be an accidental click :? Both 32 and 64 bit instances use the same User Data folder and therefore initialize to the setting in WealthLabConfig.txt (if present).
