The Instrument window displays all parameters that define an instrument including symbol mappings to your connectivity provider and symbol level commission values. The editor allows you to change or add parameters to an instrument's profile. In general, instruments that are predefined in NinjaTrader do not require any parameter modification. However, you may want to override your global commission settings if a particular symbol has a unique commission structure.


In the Instruments window, once an instrument is selected in the instrument grid, you can double left mouse click or press the edit button to open the Instrument window.
