If you enter several positions and close some of them, there are basically three ways to account for PNL

- average price

NinjaTrader simply does not offer LIFO. You can only select between average price (default) and FIFO (can be activated under Options -> General).

There have been multiple requests by NinjaTrader users for this feature, also see the following links:

'Use FIFO for position avg. price calculations' setting is not working - NinjaTrader Support Forum
LIFO for Matching Entries & Exits - NinjaTrader Support Forum
Last in First out contract PnL - NinjaTrader Support Forum

In some case - this depends on the broker API - NinjaTrader will show PNL as calculated by your broker.

Right on! I wanted him to show calculations so I can show him its either FIFO or another calculation.
I believe (although all should verify) that FIFO is also the preferred method for taxation in the USA, so calculation of LIFO are for individual uses only.

PM with any questions about optimusfutures (800) 771-6748 (561) 367 8686. THERE IS A SUBSTANTIAL RISK OF LOSS IN FUTURES TRADING.

Could someone show some code that can be used inside of a strategy to manage LIFO internally?
