Commissions Not Posting to PnL

I have a weird deal just showing up where PnL is not deducting commissions in realized PnL when flat.

I"m trading the YM and it works in Market replay but not with Live Trades via CQG / AMP.

Replay and CQG are setup identically in Options > Commissions, and box is checked for apply to Calculations.

strange.......

Anyone else run across this phenom?


Danke

I don't have the commission box checked, but commissions don't appear in PnL for me, just in the Account Balance.

@tderrick:

Hm, sounds pretty strange...

Don't know if this is of any help, but did you already try to set the commission in the instrument manager ?

Just select your instrument in the right box of the instrument manager, click 'Edit' and the 'Misc' Tab in the new opened window and enable the commission in your favourite datafeed again.

Hope this helps...bitte sehr !

If you are trading a Live account in NT the commissions are NOT deducted from the P&L in Chart Trader regardless of what settings you have made.

As I understand it this is expected behavior of NT. I guess it is because it could be misleading if you have less than precise commissions setup in NT that maybe different to what your broker charges.

That seems to be correct as shown here: NinjaTrader Version 7

Looks like that commissions are never deducted from a live account, not only in Chart Trader, but also in Realized PnL in the account tab.

According to the list, the only exception where commissions will be deducted from live account PnL should be IB.
