    The information you see in the Accounts tab of the Control Center is coming directly through your connection from your broker. Each broker sends different information to NinjaTrader about your account. I assume if you're with NinjaTrader Brokerage that you're using NinjaTrader Continuum which is a CQG-based connection. CQG-based connections (like NinjaTrader Continuum) only send 'Cash value' and 'Realized PnL'. You can learn more about what is and is not sent by your broker to NinjaTrader in the table at the bottom of the link below:

    With that said, you can apply commission templates for local reporting. Keep in mind that this is meant to be supplementary to your brokerage trading report and in no way controls what you're actually being charged.

    To apply commissions, please take the steps below.
    1. Navigate to the Accounts tab of the Control Center
    2. Right click on the Account you would like to apply the commissions to, and select 'Edit Account'
    3. In the 'Commission' drop-down menu, select the commission template.
    4. Click OK

    If the commission templates you see don't suit you, then you would have to create a custom commissions template which you may do so by navigating to the Control Center > Tools > Commissions. In this window, click, "add" in the Templates section towards the bottom left side to create a new template. Next, depending on the instrument type you intend on trading, click on the instrument type in the 'Commission per instrument type' section, and click edit. Lastly, add the 'Minimum commission' or 'Per-unit commission' and then click 'OK'. Follow the above steps to apply the commission template to your account.

    Unfortunately, the prior orders you've executed will not be applied with commissions, however, the new orders you execute will have the commissions applied.

      Hi Patrick thanks but that is with no disrespect a huge part of my problem as I have joined NT brokerage w/Nt lifetime and yet there are still steps I need to take to see basic account info.
      I realize ur tech and not bkg so thanks for responding. As a whole yall have a LONG way to go if ur goal is to compete with ABCD....
      Point in is why if I have a Brokerage account with NT and using NT data and NT platofrm....Why the heck should I HAVE to go and edit/add anything they are my broker,data feed, and platform you would think at LEAST that would be built-in should be automatic..
