Currently the Lots in Account screen reverses the sign of the value shown in
all the splits in the Splits Free and Splits in Lot panels, except the
first. The reason this was done seems to be that because each buy has a
unique lot, the first transaction (usually a buy) should be +ve and all the
other splits in the lot should be sales (-ve).


This makes the Splits Free panel confusing because it can contain splits
from multiple buys and sells.


I would like to change it so that the changing of the sign is removed from
both the Splits Free and Splits in Lot panels.

I.e. Buys: Amount (No of shares) and Value are +ve, Sells: Amount and Value
are -ve.


Does anyone have any further input as to why the signs should be as they are
or objections to this change?
