    Create a condition that will hold a position for X days

    how do you use the condition builder to create a constraint that tells the system to hold a stock for X amount of days before it will sell?

    Hello bluhmjo,

    Thanks for the post and welcome to the NinjaTrader forums. There is a built in method BarsSinceEntry() (found in Misc section), which you can use as a condition for your exit.

    If your strategy interval is day, then you can use this exactly to represent days. If it's any other interval, you could do some quick math to find out the number of bars per day. This will vary based on the instrument and trading hours (controlled by session template).

    More control is possible with custom coding, where you can take advantage of C# built in DateTime methods and create conditions using days.
