    Buying power always 0 on Sim account

    Hi -

    I am using the free version of NinjaTrader hooked to the Continuum demo. I've both edited the Sim101 account and added my own simulated account, both with 1,000,000 in cash.

    When I manually (or with a strategy) submit an order for 1 TF 12-17 contract, it is rejected because it exceeds Buying power, and, indeed, the Buying power on both accounts is 0.

    I tried disconnecting and reconnecting the Connection, but the Buying power still shows 0, although Cash value shows $1,000,000, Excess intraday margin shows $1,000,000, Excess initial margin shows $1,000,000, etc.

    Any suggestions?

    Hello,

    To set a specific cash value please use the steps outlined below:
    • Tools->Options->Simulator tab
    • Input your value for Initial Cash
    • Click Ok
    • Go back to Tools->Options->Simulator tab
    • Reset
    Let me know if I may be of further assistance.

      I'm running NinjaTrader 8. When I go to Tools->Options, the dialog box that comes up has no tabs.

      It has categories of General, Trading, Strategies, Automated trading interface, Market Data

        Please use the steps below in NinjaTrader 8.
        • Right click on the Sim101 account in the Accounts tab
        • Edit Account
        • Input a new Initial Cash value
        • Click reset
        • Uncheck "Clear history" if you do not want historical trade information removed
        • Click Yes
