    Strategies with eSignal

    Hi

    I am trying to run strategies in eSignal datafeed. For testing at this stage. I know that I need to be connected to IB to submit orders but I would like to at least get an email from my NT strategy when an entry/exit condition even if tws is disconnected. My strategies seem to work when I am connected to TWS but not when I am connected to eSignal. Thank you.

    Hello Cmfaulkner,

    Welcome to the NinjaTrader forums!

    This requires custom programming with NinjaScript. You can monitor for connection changes with the OnConnectionStatus() method. Sending mail is done with the SendMail() command.

      Hi Ryan,

      Thank you for your reply. I have a couple follow-up questions. Is there a way to run strategy with the esignal connection only? For testing a strategy in r/t like an atm?

        Yes, the strategy can be run using any connection. The only important thing is that there is data available.

        If you're wondering if you can run the strategy in real-time only, this is done by adding if (Historical) return; to the strategies OnBarUpdate() method.
