    Hello jiri_barta,

    Thank you for your reply and for confirming with the broker.

    Now that the broker has confirmed the value being seen is correct, it would likely be best to review the trade performance in NinjaTrader for this period of time to verify the trades against your brokers trade report. Have you done this at this point? Can you confirm all orders match the broker report in regard to price and quantity?

    Have you also verified that you have commissions are configured correctly? Are you only seeing a discrepancy relating to the amount of commission?

    I look forward to being of further assistance.

    I have contacted them (Dorman) and they are saying that everything is ok. Look at what I attached, it is detail from statement from yesterday. I can prove that I did only two trades and the balance after trading was 2224,34 (according NT archive) I have lost 12,5 USD only, but there are listed next payments (some casch 46 USD) and next lost 22,46 USD,...so my lost in real is 68,46 USD!

    I´m seriously aware of this problem

    Hello jiri_barta,

    Thank you for the additional details.

    I still could not answer this question with the given information, additionally, this is something you would likely need to speak to your broker about as it relates to your account balance and commissions.

    Have you contacted your broker at this point to review your trades and account balance to make sure what you see reflects the real account?

    If you have contacted your broker and they have provided different details than the platform is providing, they will refer you back to our support email for further assistance which we can continue from there. The first step will be getting in contact with the broker to verify your trades and account values to better understand the value being reported in contrast to the events on your account.


    I look forward to being of further assistance.

    Hello jiri_barta,

    Thank you for your reply.

    If this was a live trade, the order would also be subject to FIFO. It is possible that the order is not filled on this bar as there may be other orders which need to fill before your order comes up for a fill. If your order needed to wait for its turn it could end up filling after the timestamp of the bar which you noted. When your order gets submitted it gets put in last place for execution. A first-in, first-out basis means that if 10 people all submit orders at 2640.5, and then you place an order for one contract at the same price, all contracts ahead of you would need to be filled before yours gets filled which may equate to a later time.

    Are you seeing this will all limit orders submitted always or have you only found this one example? The images provided so far are all the same so I am unsure if this would just be FIFO or something else in contrast to the details provided.


    I look forward to being of further assistance.

    Hi Jesse, it was reaI trading. Look at this picture. The profit target was set at the price 2640.5. So why it wasn ´t filled at the bar 18:40 (point A) when the price was reached? It was filled bar after on the same value (point B).

    Hello jiri_barta,

    Thank you for your reply.

    Was this a realtime trade in live data or a historical trade? From the image, it appears the trade still likely filled correctly, however you can see differences between realtime and historical trades. If this was a historical trade, it would be subject to the historical fill algorithm.

    For simulated trades, you can also experiment with Enforce immediate fill option which affects limit orders: https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...ghtsub=enforce


    I look forward to being of further assistance.

    Thank you, I did but it doesn´t work, no position is open in the set time.

    This is what I want:

    1) open position in special time (it is fast ok now)
    2) close position when is open+4 tick
    3) if is open+4 reached out and close is not filled do close immediately as is possible (open+3).

    If you look at the first picture (once again in attachment) you will see I bought price 2639,5 and PT was 2640,5 which was filled at 18:41 but it should was at 18:40 whned was the PT reached. So I want when is PT reached immediately close position I don´t want to wait because it may change the trend.

    Hello jiri_barta,

    Thank you for the image that helps.

    Based on the settings in the image, it would appear the target worked successfully. At the time the entry order filled the target was submitted 4 ticks from that price. The chart also reflects the target filling 4 ticks from the entry.

    You noted in your last message:

    I have set up the profit target OPEN+1 tick, but the order was filled after some time not immediately
    If you are expecting the Open plus 1 tick, the settings you have used in the builder would be incorrect as you used 4 ticks which would be from the Close price at the time of the entry filling.

    To use the open price, you could do that however this would require using Price mode instead of Ticks for the target, you will also need to use a Variable.

    Modifying your current script, you would need to add a second action in the actions where you currently have EnterLong
    In the action builder select the following:
    • Misc -> Set User defined variable - > Variable0
    • Click the ... button in the Value field
    • Select Price Data -> Open
    • Select Offset Type -> Ticks
    • Enter the offset of 1

    The end result looks like the following:

    • Now in another set, you can utilize the variable for an exit order or an exit order of your choice.
    • An example condition would be the following checking for position and then exiting based on the price variable

    The end result looks like the following:

    Hi Jesse,

    yes I have attached it all. I set it via "ticks"......all what I want is when is reached out f.e. OPEN+1 is immediately close position.

    Hello jiri_barta,

    Can you tell me how you are currently setting the price for the target? Are you doing this only once when you enter or is this being called for each bar? If you can provide a sample of the syntax being used that would help me to better understand what should be happening to compare that with your image.

    I look forward to being of further assistance.

    Hello, please look at the prtsc from my trading. I have set up the profit target OPEN+1 tick, but the order was filled after some time not immediately. I understand that it will be filled up when someone else will buy it only. But how to set up the profit target- for example OPEN+1,... than the price will reach it out and I want to close immediately the trade? Thank you.
