Default ninjascript help

hello.

i have made this script to place a long limit order when a certain high is meet, with stops and profit targets, i am using a 15min ES chart for this.
now everything works fine the way i want it, but the problem is when that high is meet it will place a long limit order fine, but if that 15min bar high that trigger the strategy to place the long limit order closes with out triggering the strategy, it will remove the long limit order and cancel the strategy.
how can i tell NT to not too cancel anything until all the strategy have been fulfill?
i also wan to be able to cancel the strategy if another greater high have been reached if the strategy have not been fulfill.

thanks.

Hello,

Thank you for your forum post.

The reason this occurs is due to the following with Managed Orders:

Order Submission for Entry and Exit Methods - Basic Operation
You can submit and manage orders in one of two ways:

  • <LI class=rvps1>Orders that automatically expire (cancel) at the end of a bar unless re-submitted
  • Orders that are live until you purposely cancel them
http://www.ninjatrader-support.com/H...verview36.html

Please see the following page for options on how to work this. Essentially you need to recall the EnterLongLimit on every bar update that you want the limit order to remain in the market unless you specify with advanced order handling that the order is live until cancelled as described on this page:

Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Hello,

Unfortunately I am unable to code this for you. You would need to contact a NinjaScript consultant to have this coded for you/modified.
