When I draw a "Report" for "Units" as following :
The total amount each month is
number of units each month x last value
Shouldn't it be
number of units each month x mean unit value for each month
number of units each month x last unit value of the month

In Skrooge, each operation has a "current amount"=quantity * last value.
All reports are based on this "current amount".
This is why, you are right, the amount of each month is "number of units each month x last value".
This is easier for computation.
Normally, if you have a transaction like this:
2012/09/01 - 100 IBM (means 100 shares IBM)
and if the amount of IBM is like this
The history report should present this:
This is very complex and very bad for performances.
This is why we choose to always evaluate the amount of each operation with the last value of its unit.
