    Moving ATM's Targets and Stop with Hotkeys / Streamdeck device in NT7 and NT8

    IN EXECUTED ORDERS

    Basically what the Streamdeck with prorealtime / interactive brokers allows is to program buttons to move the target or stop of an EXECUTED order by a custom number of ticks or %.
    Here's the demo:
    https://youtu.be/bYdAyTN0TiQ?t=591

    Does the Ninjatrader 7 "Increase/Decrease last order price" hotkey feature permits to preconfigure a custom number of ticks the user wants to move his stop or target?

    For example:
    I executed an OCO order of 3 contracts in the Chart trader with a stop at entry - 40 ticks and 3 targets at entry + 40 ticks (target1) + 50 ticks (target 2) and +60 ticks (target 3).

    Can you check and confirm that the current NT7 and NT8 versions do allow the following with the "Increase/Decrease last order price":

    ORDER IS ACTIVE:
    ORDER QTY = 3 CTS
    ENTRY = 3340
    OCO STOP = 3300
    OCO 1ST TARGET = 3380 / 1CT
    OCO 2ND TARGET = 3390 / 1CT
    OCO 3RD TARGET = 3400 / 1CT

    USER HAS PRECONFIGURED HOTKEYS AS FOLLOWS:
    CTRL+1 = MOVE STOP TO ENTRY +10 TICKS (SHORT ORDER) / ENTRY-10 TICKS (LONG ORDER) [MOVE STOP FROM 3340 TO 3330]
    CTRL+2 = MOVE TARGET 1 10 TICKS ABOVE ORIGINAL PRICE (FROM 3380 TO 3390)
    CTRL+3 = MOVE TARGET 2 21 TICKS BELOW ORIGINAL PRICE (FROM TO 3390 TO 3369)
    CTRL+4 = MOVE TARGET 3 7 TICKS ABOVE ORIGINAL PRICE (FROM TO 3400 TO 3407)

    Other issue:
    it seems Ninjatrader 7 and 8 force users to use a combination of keys for orders entry hotkeys.
    Can it be made so users can use a single key / button (like the streamdeck feature)?
    so rapid execution with keyboard hotkey is granted (no forcing using 2 keys/hands - removing fat finger/slower execution issues)?
    And compatibility with streamdeck is warranted?


    Clearly Ninjatrader users are at a massive disadvantage in regards to speed and simplicity of execution because of current mandatory manual ATM movement of targets and stop management.

    When will these essential and basic features be granted in Ninjatrader 7 and Ninjatrader 8?

    So Ninjatrader users can at last be on par with cutting edge orders management technology?

    Potentially improving results massively with proper execution?
    Imagine the impact even if it improves execution of 1 tick per trade for 100s or 1000s of contracts traded in the month?
    We're talking of $1,000 or $10,000+ gained by this simple Ninjatrader 7 and 8 upgrade.
    That's the cost Ninjatrader users pay currently because of this lack.



    Thanks.

    It is not currently possible to modify this function to change the range that is increased or decreased.

    I've added a feature request for this item.

      Hi NinjaTrader_Heath

      Thanks for the follow up. Can you give an estimation of when the feature will be released?

      A similar request here dates back from may 2014 here:
      https://ninjatrader.com/support/foru...keys-for-atm-s

      Would be beneficial to combine the 2 requests features for the dev team.

      Thanks.

        Also the request is not just about changing the 'range that is increased or decreased currently available hotkey' ( i.e. customizing the number of ticks to move the stops and target by the press of a single button instead of the slow and error prone current way of manually clicking the target/Stop tag and again manually clicking to a new location on chart).
        It's also and mainly about doing that on an EXECUTED order (i.e. moving the stop/targets by pressing ONCE a single button AFTER the order has been executed = managing the EXECUTED position, not just moving the OCO order prior it 's been executed).

        Please make sure to let the dev team know the exact specifics of the request.

        Please refer to this thread https://ninjatrader.com/support/foru...keys-for-atm-s for reviewing that the current 'increased or decreased hotkey' only works currently for moving orders PRIOR of their executions —which is not what matters/what's requested in this case— i.e MANAGING *****EXECUTED***** POSITIONS.

        Thanks.

              Ok. Thanks for the details. Is this the right place for release notes ?
              https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...ease_notes.htm

              What's the release schedule? So I can check and inquire periodically for new features?

              Is there a simple way to track inquire for features?

              Thanks a lot.

                Hello Cormick,

                Thank you for your reply.

                That is the correct location to view release notes.

                We don't have a set release schedule, this typically depends on the severity of items that have been patched or new requirements for connection API's etc that have been changed. It's not based on a specific timeline but rather the features that have been added or changed. Each release varies in content and release time.

                We do not currently have a timeline for the next major or minor release of the platform.

                  +1 for hotkeys in ATM please. Moving to breakeven with specified extra ticks in profit would be a good start.
                  Currently it only moves the stoploss onto the position. I need a few extra ticks to "pay for" the commissions.
