How does a currency prefixed with (-) get parsed?

I had a question about how a particular currency in our documents would be parsed.
In the annual statement, we have a currency value (labeled Less Total Loans ) that has a (-) prefix. In all our sample documents, all the values are (-) $0.00 so we see the corresponding value parsed as 0 which is expected.
If the data in the document were instead (-)$200.00 would the parsed value be -200 or 200 ?

The currency type always returns positive values (and zero) so you’d get back 200.
We do have an Accounting Currency type that handles negative numbers, but even with that type, the negative sign being in the parenthesis is making it ignore it.
