Default Order Setups

I would like to create an order to buy/sell 3 lots at market, profit targets 1 point on 2 lots and 1.5 points on 1 lot; stop loss 2 points. Can you point me to somewhere in manual that describes how to do this. I want this to be A ONE CLICK order - not running around the chart to place the orders. Thanks.

Hello JerryA,

Thank you for your post.

You may achieve this by selecting an ATM Strategy prior to submitting your Market entry order. I have provided a link below to our Help Guide that goes over ATM Strategy Parameters.

http://www.ninjatrader.com/support/h...parameters.htm

I have also provided a screen shot of the required settings for the scenario you have described. In this example I am using Ticks based of the ES.

Please let me know if I may be of further assistance.

That is correct in order to have access to ATM Strategies while trading live you would be required to use a Live NinjaTrader license key purchased or leased from NinjaTrader.

I have provided a link below to our subscription page that goes over the different options that are available.

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.

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.
