    Today is my firs day trading live with brokerage account. I have taken 2 trades and the commission is still at $0.00

    But when i trade in Live SIm, it shows the commission being added on.

      I figured out how to fix it. Now that its enabled, what happens to the commissions that it didn't take out from the first 2 trades? Will it add it?

        Johnny,

        Glad that you figured it out. To apply commisison you must use a commission template.
        • Navigate to the Control Center -> Accounts tab
        • Right click on an account and select 'Edit Account...'
        • On the 'Commission' row, select the name of the template in the pull-down menu
        • Click 'OK
        Commissions will not apply retroactively. So only new trades going forward will have the commission applied.

          So what was I charged before it was applied?

            The commissions applied in NinjaTrader are only for the calculation done in your Trade Preformance report. You can find out what comissions you actually paid by viewing this PDF available on our website:

              I'm confused. So What i see while I'm trading is not what I'm paying? That wouldn't make sense.

              My question is, Before I activated the lifetime commission in the settings, I was not seeing a commission. What was I being charged BEFORE I set it to lifetime?

                Johnny,

                The commissions in the platform must be set by you to determine how the platform calculates your Trade Performance(in the Trade Performance window). If you never set a commission template than your Trade Performance window in NinjaTrader would likely not match your brokerage statement. You must manually apply a commission template to an account before NinjaTrader knows what values will be calculated in your Trade Performance report.

                What was I being charged BEFORE I set it to lifetime?
                I suspect you paid the commission of the non lifetime license if that was before you switched the license over.
