    Limit Orders

    I would like to know if there is any way to set up a time (for example a few seconds) in order the NT sends a market order when the price reached a limit order but this one has not been executed.

    Thank you in advance.

    Hello Plaket,

    Thank you for your note.

    What you can do is run a check if the Close[0] has touched the limit price and you are still in a flat position to cancel that limit order and submit a market order

    Code:
    if(Position.MarketPosition == Position.Flat && Close[0] >= limitPrice)
    {
         CancelOrder(LimitOrder);
         EnterLong();
    }
    You would need to switch the >= to <= for short orders.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

      Thank you for the reply Cal,

      The problem with that solution is that I have to wait the duration of the bar in order to check if the condition is true. If I'm working with high Time Frames it could be a problem.

      Is there any way to set up a time (for example a few seconds) in order to send an order at market after the price has reached the level of the limit order?

      Thank you in advance.

        Plaket,

        You set CalculateOnBarClose to false so that you are checking this condition on each incoming tick of data so that you have a more accurate time when the price touches the limit.
