IMPROVEMENT: For negative numbers and balances (in accounts) use "Minus" sign (-) and not parentheses
I.e. My accounts with negative balance are shown inside Parentheses (as most of negative numbers too). After so many months I yet get confused with that! Negative values in gemeral are represented with Minus Sign symbol. Not with Parentheses.. I don't know why you use Parentheses but there should be an option for Minus Sign, if users like me are confused every time... An account with negative balance of 200€, should be denoted as -200 and not as (200).. At least we should have the option to choose the representation that help us more!
-- Several of the ways to display negative amounts are:
Description Country Formatting
The negative sign before both the currency symbol and number. UK
The negative sign before the number but behind the currency symbol. Denmark kr-127,54
The negative sign after the number. Netherlands € 127,54-
The use of parentheses. US ($127.54)

US English does not use the minus sign? I use US English in all applications and even in my PC.. I had never seen such thing! I will try UK English
Parenthesis is used only in case that you have set US English in your device.
