Lock in the cost basis in portfolio currency.
The cost basis per share is currently the only place you can enter the price paid. There should be a lock in or book cost column. For example, my portfolio is set up in EUR, I bought a US stock when the EUR/USD was 1.22, it's now 1.17 and Portfolio is indicating a lower gain despite that being incorrect as I paid x amount of euro for the stock at the time. the cost has not changed for me in my base currency. Should be a simple fix!!

Great idea for users who are not US$ based. Need to be able to specify base currency total book cost. I currently put the base currency book cost into the Notes field but this is not a complete solution.
