    Close P&L in simulation mode

    Hi,

    It appears as though all my P&L figures for a closed trade have doubled (this is in sim mode). With the trade open, the P&L calculations are correct but when the trade closes the number added to closed P&L is doubled (both positive and negative results), i.e. a 1 tick profit on 1 ES contract shows 12.50 open P&L but adds $25.00 to closed P&L once the exit is filled.

    I haven't checked all the instruments but ES, CL and 6E are all exhibiting this behavior. Since the open P&L is correct and the fact that this is consistent over several instruments would seem to point away from it being a wrong setting in the instruments.

    I don't use sim very much so I can't say exactly when this behavior started. My only recent change to the environment was to install the new release.

    Hello ScottB,

    Thanks for writing in today.

    I am seeing 12.50 register as closed P&L on the Accounts tab of my Control Center after submitting an ATM with a 1 tick profit target on the ES 03-17.

    After resetting the simulation account, do you see the same?

    Resetting a simulation account will clear all historical trade data from this account. 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
    Could you show me a picture of your Accounts tab after you have tested with the simulation account reset?

    To send a screenshot with Windows 7 or newer I would recommend using Window's Snipping Tool.

    Alternatively to send a screenshot press Alt + PRINT SCREEN to take a screenshot of the selected window. Then go to Start--> Accessories--> Paint, and press CTRL + V to paste the image. Lastly, save as a jpeg file and send the file as an attachment.

    Click here for detailed instruction

    I look forward to assisting you further.

      Jim,

      I will send you the screenshots later in the day, once I am finished trading.

        Jim,

        There wasn't anything to see anywhere. I checked the logs, the trace, the accounts, everything. Nothing out of the ordinary at all (I have used NinjaTrader almost since it first came out and have been through enough of these things to know basically what you are looking for).

        This doesn't affect me in any way beyond having to divide the P&L by 2, which even after a long day of trading isn't an onerous task. At some point, I imagine someone else will come across this and possibly have more to show to point you guys in the right direction.

        Thanks,
        Scott
