Hi ninjablanks, if you are working in NinjaScript you can accomplish this with a MultiInstrument Strategy, please follow this link for more info - http://www.ninjatrader-support.com/H...struments.html

If you are for example executing a TradeStation strategy, you could use the workspace naming for executing to the mini Euro contract, please see this link for examples - http://www.ninjatrader-support.com/H...ceOptions.html
