    I am trying to do a very simple adjustment while backtrading m3.
    My Delta is -64.87 outside the tent before adjustment and trying to move up by 5 points to have delta = -32.94.
    I can see in the graph(magenta) the end result but after clicking convert trade, the t+0 line went down all the way and showing negative P/L.

    I apologize if I am doing stupid here. I am new to m3 and Optionvue. Thanks.

    I tried again and it seems to work sometimes then it fails the second adjustment.
    1.) Works at first adjustment
    2.) Second adjustment ends up below the zero line

    Hi All,

    I just want to update for the resolution I got from Ken/James(OptionVue) on this issue so it may benefit others. Thanks.

    The issue you’re seeing is related to previous gains/losses not being included properly in your
    gain/loss calculation after adjustment.
    Open the Info window (Account Information) and check the “G/L to include previously realized G/L’s” box. (see screenshot)
    Next use the Trade Log R grouping column and/or the Trade ID column to group all the trades together you want included in
    your Gain/Loss calculation. You can use Ctrl D on your keyboard to quickly copy the Trade ID or R codes to other lines. (see 2nd screenshot)
    The Matrix Gain/Loss and Analyze graph will now include the gain/loss for the closed out portion of your original trade.

    Cheers,
    Gio
