    ghost profit?

    I do not know if it is the right place for this post.
    I'm doing demo tests for a bot, running in real time.
    Sometimes it happens that it reaches the profit long before the price arrives.
    I use the bot with the NTRenko10 filter.
    Does anyone know if the bug is the fault of the programming of the bot or the data (DEMO) of CQG?
    I attach images.

    Hello franki,

    Sometimes is good to check a 1 tick ask or 1 tick bid chart at that time to see if there was a tick received at that price.

    The order if placed after real-time data is proceeded would be filling the orders using the real-time ask and bid prices.

    I would also check that the PC clock is in sync with internet time.

    Compare your PC Clock with https://www.time.gov/
    If you are not in sync:
    • Shutdown NinjaTrader
    • Right-click the clock in the lower right corner of your desktop -> Select Adjust date/time
    • If you are using Windows 10, click 'Additional date, time, & regional settings' -> then click 'Set the time and date'
    • Click on Internet Time tab
    • In the Server: drop-down select time.nist.gov
    • Click Update
    • If the message that appears says successful your PC clock should now be updated
    • If not, select a different server from the Server: drop-down and try again (repeat until one of the servers is successful)
    • Restart NinjaTrader
    • Connect to a data feed, then right-click the chart and select Reload All Historical Data

      Graphs of ticks in real account or in real time?
      data feeds is the same in demo account and real account?

      my computer has always been well synchronized.
      Central European Time GMT + 1

      This bug is today when I've seen it in 2 instruments. But it may have happened many more times.
      I need to debug this error, to pass the strategy to the VPS test and later to a real account.
      Thx!

        Hi franki,

        We should still be able to see the execution marker on the ask chart.

        The order is a buy order to close a short position, is this correct?

        Buy orders fill at the ask. Where is this order on the ask chart?

          Although the error favors the trade, it distorts the real result.
          With the NQ instrument, it also happens the same and so I think it's not an isolated situation and this bug will be repeated
          Thx!!

            Hello franki,

            Thank you for your response.

            Is this the first occurrence you have seen of this on the Sim101 account for real-time executions?

            I would recommend repairing the database at this point but this would not correct any previous executions at the incorrect price level.

            What version of NinjaTrader 7 are you using? You can check this by going to Help > About in the Control Center.

            I look forward to your response.

                  Hello PatrickH

                  I remember seeing that behavior before the reinstallation, but I did not give importance because the bot was not yet ready for the live market
                  Now I use another bot and I can discard relation with the previous bot and platform ninjatrader.
                  Before I used unirenko bars and now I use 10NTRenko bars
                  2 months ago I lived in another city and used another internet connection.
                  During today I have not appreciated any errors
                  Thank you PatrickH

                    In your first post, you said "NTRenko10", and just now you said "10NTRenko".

                    Could you explain more? What exactly is the bartype you're using?

                    Are you trying to say your chart is using the standard NinjaTrader "Renko" bar with a BrickSize set to 10?

                    Backtesting a strategy with standard Renko bars does not give valid results.

                      I always refer to NTRenkocandele (being strict and exactly) value 10

                      The backtesting of the strategy is done in real time and is not done with "strategy analyzer"
                      You can check a high percentage of success, except when ghost targets occur
                      Have you seen this type of targets before?

                          Thank you for your response.

                          As a test please try a new database by renaming your current database. You can rename your database by following the steps below.
                          • Shutdown NinjaTrader and Go to the Start Menu
                          • Select My Documents--> NinjaTrader 7--> DB--> NinjaTrader.SDF.
                          • Right click on NinjaTrader.SDF and select "Rename." *Name it "OLDNinjaTrader.SDF."
                          • Then restart the software and NinjaTrader will create a fresh database file to use

                          Please let me know if the behavior continues on the Sim101 account when trying a new database.

                              Thank you for your update.

                              So the strategy is running on the custom bar type in these instances, correct? Do you continue to see the issue if the strategy runs on the Renko bars type or something simple like a 1 Minute bars type?

                              I look forward to your response.
