The new symbology is not present in the Positions list.

The Position list shows BTCUSD instead of BTC/USD to denote you hold BTC asset, while you submit an order to buy BTC/USD to indicate you are exchanging USD with BTC. So please do not get confused with BTCUSD symbol as an asset symbol and BTC/USD as tradable pair.
