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. TopstepTrader Trade Reports are calculated using the data from R|Trader.

How to: batch roll contracts in ninjatrader 8:
NinjaTrader allows batch rollover of the contract expiry of all instruments across all instrument lists and windows on all open workspaces. To perform this batch rollover please see the video and steps below.
Select the Tools menu within the Control Center followed by the Database menu item.
The grid for the Rollover futures instruments section will show each instrument that is eligible to be rolled over. A contract is eligible to be rolled when today's date is greater than or equal to the rollover date defined for the instruments next contract month.
When selecting Rollover, any instrument with a check mark in the Update column will be updated to the contract month in the New Expiry column.
Note: Rolling over futures instruments will update the expiry of the instruments across all instrument lists and windows using the instruments on all open workspaces. These changes on workspaces will need to be saved should you wish to preserve them. If there are areas you still wish to use the old expiry with please be sure to switch them back to the old expiry or do not rollover at this time.
Note: NinjaScript strategies are not rolled forward and must be manually rolled over.
