    track price set by attach to indicator

    I use the attach to indicator entry method often using MIT orders. sometimes, I notice that the order is not filled as the spread is bit high. is there a way, I can alert myself when my order price is just between the bid and ask so I can just make it into a market order?

    Hello junkone,

    Thank you for your note.

    Use an Order object to hold the order and then check it's level against the needed prices. If it meets the criteria then submit it as a different order.

    For example:
    Code:
    			MyOrder = EnterLongMIT(Close[0] - (2 * TickSize));
    			
    			if (MyOrder.StopPrice < GetCurrentAsk()
    				&& MyOrder.StopPrice > GetCurrentBid())
    			{
    				MyOrder = EnterLong();
    			}
    For information on Order objects please visit the following link: http://ninjatrader.com/support/helpG...n-us/order.htm

      my issue is that I use charttrader to enter orders and manage the exit using OCO ATM Strategy template. at the moment, I don't see a way I can monitor orders entered using the chart trader . do you folks see a work around here?

        Hello junone,

        You could check the order on the SuperDOM using a custom column and OnOrderUpdate(): http://ninjatrader.com/support/helpG...rderupdate.htm

            Nothing in regards to orders, but you can find the APQ, Notes, ProfitLoss, and Volume SuperDOMColumns under the NinjaScript Editor.
