    Bracket Order + Trailing stop

    I am using Interactive Brokers. I would like to use Ninja trader to place a limit order to enter a trade in the ES contract. After the trade goes through, I would like to make an OCA order for the following.

    1) Place a 1 point stop to the exchange.

    2) Place a simulated 2 pt trailing stop. After 2 points profit, I'd like the trailing stop to be the only stop.

    3) Place a limit order to capture 4 pts profit.

    Is this possible to do in Ninja Trader? What is the best possible way of doing this and how do I create this strategy? Thank You.

        As long as I have these settings every time I enter an order, I will have the same OCA Bracket+trail order?

        If not, will I need to make an automated strategy to set this up? Thanks

          Yes. Just create this in the strategy manager, give it a name, then select this strategy from the Position Strategy list in the entry window of your choice (SuperDOM or Basic) and then all information will be automatically updated.

            Great, I've set that up and it seems to work.

            What should I do if I need to modify the limit order to exit?

            Should I modify the target on the SuperDom as needed?

                What if I want to move my initial stop/loss from 3.25 of entry to .75 of entry once I have 1 point profit? I'd have to make my auto trailstep1 profit trigger1 with stop loss 1.75?? Then use my breakeven target to say 1.50 which would leave my step 2 trailprofit targetopen for the next step??

                    one more thing......does the trailing profit trigger work off of AVERAGE entry price if I've scaled into position???

                      No, original average entry. If you disable AT then enable it it will then it will use the new average entry price.

                        By "original average entry" ..........so if I buy/sell 1 contract then one more 2 points away from the first;will that total positionconstitutes original average entry priceor did youNOT mean to say original AVERAGE entry. Just meaning price of first entry( as opposed to turning it off/on on a 3rd scale in add to position because to me original average entry means at least 2 trades different price)?

                          Also I'm doing this by hand thru the DOM so how would is turn off/on......right click DOM AND click/unclick AT because in my case it AT would be off then I'd click it on then off??

                            I think I see... you meant right click DOM and select "close all position strategies"? If so then whats the fastest way to recreate my strategy that I've selected in the DOM?

                              Click on the TR label in green while in an active strategy to disable. Average entry as displayed by the brown box in the DOM after your inital stop and targets have been submitted.
