I suspect this is a bug in investment performance report.

- Have CAD (Canadian Dollar) set as primary currency for Moneydance.
- Create a USD Investment account.
- Add money to USD investment account (in USD).
- Buy stock in USD account (in USD).
- Check Investment Performance report under Graphs & Reports.
- You will see that "Buys" for the period (beginning of year) will show the amount in USD for the stock you bought. However, value on today's date for stock will show in CAD (after converting based on the FX rate). The report will then show the conversion difference as "Return Amount" and give you a very high "Return %".

To fix this, "Buys" column and today's value column should use same currency.
