    Observation regarding risk profile definition

    Running NT8 version 8.0.24.2 64-bit. Recently had account Sim 101 order refused with message "no risk profile defined for the instrument". Never saw that before. Edited Sim 101 and set risk profile to <None>. Pop up message said would not take effect until re-started NT. Re-started NT only to find that Sim 101 risk profile had been cleared (i.e. a blank or empty string in the dialog box). Tried the Sim 101 order again and it was rejected, same message. Edited Sim 101 and set risk profile to <None>, saw the same message about needing to re-start. Did not re-start. Submitted order without re-starting. Order was accepted. At a minimum the dialog associated with changing risk profile is botched. Also seems to me the risk profile should default to <None> and no user should ever need to bother with this unless they specifically wanted to assign a risk profile.

      Hello,

      Thank you for your post.

      Glad to assist. You may resolve this by either updating the risk template for your Sim101 account or, if you do not mind losing trade history for the account, resetting it entirely.

      To set a risk template for an account, go to the Accounts tab in the Control Center, right-click on the Sim account, and select "Edit account." Next to "Risk" ensure that a template is selected; you may use the Default NinjaTrader Brokerage template if you do not wish to create your own.

      To create a new risk template, you would go to Tools->Risk from the Control Center. In the left-hand side you would select "add" to configure new risk settings, then manually add each instrument you wish to be on the template as well as the instrument restrictions. Alternatively, you may copy the NinjaTrader Brokerage template and edit the instruments (add a new one, or edit existing settings).

      Here is some more information about working with Risk Templates:

      Finally, resetting a simulation account will clear all historical trade data from this account but may resolve this error you are receiving.
      Please follow the instructions below to reset a simulation account.
      • From the NinjaTrader Control Center window select the Accounts tab
      • Right click on your simulation account and select 'Edit Account'
      • Press the "Reset" button

      Please let us know if we may be of further assistance.
