      Default Profits in Metatrader5 are not what I expected

      Hi, I'm doing some tests in MT5, and I found something strange. I'm trading SPX500 (in a demo account). I did a Buy for 4 Lots (so, 40 units). The Buy price was 2505.4, and I closed the position at 2481.2. The Commission was -1.92. And my Profit, and here goes what I don't understand, was -845.55.

      I thought that the correct math would be:

      2505.4 - 2481.2 = 24.2 loss per contract.
      -24.2 * 40 contracts = -968 loss

      From where comes the -845.55? AFAIK it should be -968
