Performance Report

To generate a performance report:




1.Select the From and To date range for the report
2.Select the Mode for the performance data to be displayed in. The options are Percent, Currency, Points.
3.Press the Generate button


Performance data is generated and displayed in the various Performance Data Tabs.


Group trades by ATM strategy

When this option is selected, trades are reported based on ATM Strategies. For example, if you have an ATM Strategy that had multiple entries and exits, all executions are grouped and reported as one trade record under the Trades tab with single average entry and exit prices.


Note: It is possible to have trades before the From date being listed in your report. NinjaTrader generates reports from the last time you were flat. If a particular instrument was already in the middle of a position at the beginning of the From date, NinjaTrader will report all trades prior to this date up to the point where the position was flat. This will ensure you have a complete picture in terms of your performance on any specific date instead of "jumping" into the middle of a position which may cause inaccurate overall performance.
