Hi,
I have been sim trading equities over the last few months and I have discovered a load of accounting issues with Ninjatrader 8. For example one issue is the following...

On 8 July I have the following trades https://prntscr.com/odtcz4

Then I made a load of trades on 9 July https://prntscr.com/odtdpd

Now on 8 July I made a trade that I carried over to 9 July and closed out on 9 July but this does not seem to appear in the above reports because if I now generate a report between 8 July and 9 July, it does appear https://prntscr.com/odtesn

The missing trade from the first two reports is the CHGG trade (#30-47) in the last report. So my question - is this an error as the trade should appear in either the first or the second single day report??
In my opinion it should be in the 9 July report as that is when I closed the trade and realized the profit/loss.

Thanks,
iq

Have you reported these issues to @NinjaTrader?

An email or call to their support would seem to be a logical next step to get a resolution or an explanation.

Bob.

Thanks for your reply. Yes, I did report all the issues I spotted. No Ninjatrader CS rep replied. Disappointing really. See:

First off, I am sorry that we left a post unanswered, that is unlike us and I we will investigate why and how this could have happened to ensure it does not happen again. Lastly, I will have someone follow up and post a response.

Are you saying that active trades donít appear in the trade report? If so, yes I have noticed this and agree these should appear in the report with the current profit/loss and other statistics at the time the report is generated.
