Important things to know before getting started:
ALWAYS monitor your NET P&L in R|Trader rather than NinjaTrader by clicking on Trader Dashboard, and locating the column labeled P&L. R|Trader automatically calculates commissions and fees, while NinjaTrader does not display your Net P&L accurately in real time. Topstep® Trade Reports are calculated using the data from R|Trader.
Trades placed in SIM101 will not be sent to us. Please be sure to trade in the correct account (found in Account Information email).
