Black Bird did not account for commissions nor stop trading when sum total profit for 3 strategies exceeded Max Net Profit of $500.00 (Solved)

I was trading 3 strategies and set a net max profit of $500 for the day.  I noticed when the total profit of all three strategies exceeded $500, BB did not stop trading.  See attached file showing a total profit of $557.50 and this includes $44 dollars in commissions.  I thought once the sum of net profits for all three strategies was hit (in this case $500)  BB would stop trading for the day.  It was noted later that when just  CL reached $510, which does not include commissions, (see attached showing $466 profit with commissions or $510 without)  then it stopped trading but the other two strategies kept on trading. I may have misunderstood but I thought the max net profit would take into account the sum total of all blackbird strategies that were running on one computer.

    HI Bob,

    A:  I noticed when the total profit of all three strategies exceeded $500, BB did not stop trading. 
    Q:  BB running on CL 09-16 did turn off at $510 profit.  NQ and ES did not turn off, because you did not have Net Max Profit enabled on the instruments.  Each BB run on its own settings.

    A:  Black Bird did not account for commissions...
    Q:  BB does account for commissions.  The Commissions in NinjaTrader must be setup correctly.  NT support can help you with that.

    Thanks.
