Default Indicator: Using Try-Catch Blocks

Debugging your NinjaScript code can be time consuming and frustrating. When NinjaTrader encounters a run-time exception in your programming logic it will terminate the execution of the script and log the exception to the Control Center Log tab. This in itself can be of value however, there may be times where your script is too large and the exception error message provided is not granular enough. This is where standard C# exception handling using the keywords “try” and “catch” (try–catch block) can be very useful. A try-catch block allows you to encapsulate a section of your code to trap exceptions and write out meaningful information that can help you resolve your run-time errors.

Key concepts in this example:
  • try-catch blocks

Futures, foreign currency and options trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones financial security or lifestyle. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. View Full Risk Disclosure.

CFTC Rules 4.41 - Hypothetical or Simulated performance results have certain limitations, unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not been executed, the results may have under-or-over compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profit or losses similar to those shown.
