The field will be available with the release of table manager.

However it's possible to make own implementation of pip cost calculation:

Hi sunshine,

thank you for your answer, but I am interesting in getting a pip cost, not a pip price.
Please see "Simple Dealing Rates Window" at
http://support.fxcm.com/fxts/user-guide/rates/
and the "Pip Cost" for the definition.

thanks,
Anton.

Hi Anton,
Actually it's the link on how this value (Pip Cost in the Simple Dealing Rates in the FX Trading Station ) is calculated.
Here is the article where the formula is described more clearly:

Hi sunshine,

thank you for the links.
I think I understand what you are saying. However, I am confused.
The two links you provided are not from fxcm site, and they perform calculation in different ways with different results.

So it would be very helpful I believe to have a formula that is used by O2G or by TS2 in calculation of Pip Cost.
Or I will better wait until you release it. ;)

thanks,
Anton.

Here is a link.

But there is one difference. Instead of current bid and ask rates, average value is used (that is (ask + bid)/2).

We are going to release the table manager in August.

Please - has table manager been released?
The FXConnect API is still most problematic; with inexplicable hangs and crashes: -
most disconcerting; I urgently require my robot agorithm to run all symbols as soon as possible... with the current interaction with the api I would be exceedingly grateful if just one symbol would actually communicate both correctly and continuously...
It would be most helpful if clear instructions along with sample coding was available for those who are desperately trying to enable private robot trading... thank you, Bebbspoke.
