    Note: The P/L based on option can be set to Risk Algorithmas the default by yourTT User Setup administrator. If you cannot change P/L based on, an administrator may need to change this for you.

When Include Indicative Settle is enabled and the P/L based on setting is set to Settlement, X_TRADER uses the Indicative Settle (indicative settlement price) sent by the gateway from the Exchange to calculate how P&L is displayed in the Orders and Fills Window Summary Pane, Position Window Position Pane, and the Fill Window Position Pane.

When Include Indicative Settle is enabled and the Indicative Settle is not available, the Settle (settlement price) is used to calculate the displayed P&L.

When Include Indicative Settle is disabled (which it is by default), the display is calculated using the current P/L based on selection.
