[AUD/USD:CY:S4400] Short 1@0.87310 Risk 116 ptlsx
A short trade was entered at market. The trade volume was 1 lot, the last price quote (not necessarily the fill price) was 0.87310.

Is there any use to display the last price quote and not the fill price? Because there are significant differences one must always read the entries of (demo)trades.csv in parallel to comprehend the trade results. Could it be an option to display the fill prices at least additionaly in the log, maybe according to any verbose level?

Thanks, Sphin

Displayed prices are always ask prices for reasons of consistency. If the broker API returns the fill price, it is logged in the trade record.

Continuous ask prices are not the problem, the prices in the log are partly far away from the real prices (balanced bid/ask differences), esp. at FXCM (or maybe it simply feels that way to me because I often use them). So the spelling "Short 1@0.87310" is a bit misleading because the trade wasn't really entered or exited @ this price that is a feature ("not necessarily the fill price") and my question was why there isn't the fill (ask) price logged? Maybe Zorro doesn't know the fill price at this moment or maybe there are other reasons.
