    Which symbol format do I use for Patsystems?

    Hello,

    We are just about to go live trading with RJO Futures broker using the following set-up: TradeStation + NT DLL + RJO Futures broker.

    RJO Futures broker uses the Patsystems technology (Pats) for NinjaTrader platform.

    Within my TradeStation EasyLanguage code I'm using the following functions to "place an order to SELL 1 Corn contract at MARKET"

    {Function 1} NTCommand("PLACE","Sim101","ZC 05-12","SELL",1,"MARKET",0,0,"GTC","","ord_id","","") ;

    {Function 2} NTCommand("PLACE","Sim101","ZC|CME_CBOT|0.01 05-12 ","SELL",1,"MARKET",0,0,"GTC","","ord_id",""," ");

    The EL program is applied to the @C=12VOC symbol in TradeStation (TS). Function 1 listed above works fine in simulation mode in that when TS generates a buy or sell signal, NT then executes this signal on the May 2012 Corn contract (ZC 05-12) which is what I want. But I'm just worried that it will not do exactly the same in LIVE trading (?) because maybe I have to use a different symbol name within the function itself like "ZC|CME_CBOT|0.01 05-12" for LIVE trading instead of the "ZC 05-12" I have been using in simulation mode.

    Can you tell me if Function 1 will work in both simulation and live mode? I already know that Function 1 works in simulation mode. Or, would I have to use Function 2 (or write the function some other way) for LIVE trading using Patsystems at "RJO Futures" broker?

    Thanks in advance. Much appreciated.

    Regards

    Rod

    Rod, you would send your orders to the NT symbol, so the ZC one for corn. Providing of course this is receiving data well in your Control Center while connected to PATS, then the mapping would be ok.
