Confusion with Text Orientation

I have a video I'm working on in which I need to update the text in certain positions to indicate the "profit" made in the video, but I want a rolling total.

 

For this effect, I need to change the text in two different positions every 1.22 seconds (00:00:01;07). This is easy to achieve, except that the Position doesn't match every time.

 

Although my Anchor Point is consistently X 960, Y 540 (as my video is 1920x1080), the Position doesn't match, or it is likely based on the text's CENTER, not the LEFT, like I need it to. How do I change the orientation of the text to be based on the left rather than the center?

After further research, I found out I can use the "center" option in the Text's Effect Controls. However, this doesn't solve my problem.

 

I attempted to see if their default location (X 960, Y 540) are the same and they are NOT. My text "214" is directly in the center (likely the exact coordinate I need). My text "0" is at roughly X 980, Y 700, but displays X 960, Y 540... 2020-09-26 (1).png

 The above image is the text "214" that is properly centering in my video.
