    Commission on Sim101

    Hi all,

    I was wondering whether it was possible to set up a commission amount on the Sim101 account on NinjaTrader?

    I wanted to add more realism.


    Thanks!

    Hello,

    Thank you for your post.

    Absolutely, commission can be included in your PnL calculations provided you have correctly configured NinjaTrader. Commission values can be defined for each connectivity provider per instrument and per instrument type.Commission values are used in the following order:
    • From the instrument if a commission value has been defined else
    • From the instrument type if a commission value has been defined else
    • No value is used since none have been defined

    Please follow the instructions below to define commission values per instrument type:

    Please follow the instructions below to define commission values per instrument:

    Critical: Ensure that 'Apply commission to PnL calculations' is enabled under Tools > Options > General tab.

      I am using Yahoo as my market data provider. Does this mean I cannot set up a commission system for my trading?
