    Trade Analyzer Reporting Question

    Hello,
    I just begain live trading this past week and am going over my results. I have a question about the data that was reported in NT8.
    As you can see in my screenshot, my first trade resulted in a loss of one tick.
    my question is why is my profit -3 ticks?

    Hello,

    Thank you for your note.

    What is the display type checked in the Display drop-down? Is Ticks checked?

        First, I'd like to preface the troubleshooting of this report with the fact that it cannot and does not affect and profit or loss for any trades you've made and you should treat this report and secondary and supplementary to you brokerage report. You may confirm your true profit/loss with your broker.

        Please send me your database, log, and trace files so that I may look into what occurred.
        • You can do this by going to the Control Center-> Help-> Email Support
        • Expand 'Other files' and enable 'Database file'.
        • Please reference the following ticket number in the body of the email: 2283972 ATTN Patrick G

            The extra 'ticks' of profit/loss are coming from commissions. If you look at your screenshot, you can see that your commissions for the first trade are recorded $1.64. The second trade displays $3.28. NinjaTrader reporting rounds these to the nearest tick value and includes then as part of your profit calculation.
