FYI those interested in using FT for Stocks or Futures
-there is a bug in FT for Stocks. The Account Balance is damaged. Until this is fixed in future release, a work around is to treat Futures like Currencies and create your unique Currency like YMSUSD. See attached for Symbol definition.

this is a YM definition that can be treated like a Currency.

Hello, you can try to use settings which are shown on the attached screenshot. But there is no guarantee that these settings will match with your broker's settings.
