    Held/Staged orders

    Hi,

    Is there any concept of held/staged/pending orders in NinjaTrader? Under certain circumstances, I would like to prepare orders ahead of time and then release them.

    I know I can put an order off the market and then move it but I am trying to avoid that. However, if there isn't a way to do that, does anyone know how far away you can put orders in the currencies 6E, etc?

    Thanks
    Scott

    Hello Scott,

    The closest we have to this is simulated orders. These are locally held orders that are awaiting some condition before being sent to your broker. With NinjaScript: Stop loss orders submitted with SetStopLoss() can be simulated. This concept also extends to the Superdom with simultated stop orders.

    Unfortunately I'm not sure how close orders must be when trading 6e. Hopefully another community member can offer input here or your broker should have this information.

      Ryan, thanks for the information. I am using the unmanaged approach so neither of the options you mentioned will work for me.

      I spoke with the CME and the answer for 6E is 60 ticks off the market. If you go to their website and search for price bands you will find a .pdf file that has the values for all the various contracts.

      Thanks again
      Scott
