    Use keyboard keys (or sequence) to enter orders

    Hello! I am new here

    I have read:

    Order Management
    You can easily modify the price of order directly on the chart! Simply click on the order you want to modify and drag it to your desired price. Click on the label to change the size of an order or click on the “X” to cancel it.


    on the site. It is an excellent feature, and has me wondering..

    Is it possible to use keyboard keys, or a sequence, or the mouse alone, to enter a buy-stop-limit, or short-stop-limit, order.. so that it will generate a line on the chart.. which can be dragged to an exact level.

    I specifically wsnt to bypass the step of manually entering an order, and bypassing superDOM.
    I would like a way to quickly create and move/modify stop limit orders, both buy and short, on multiple charts.

    NinjaTrader does not currently support hot keys for order submission. This is on our list.

      Great. Increased speed of order entry is Key.

      I am wanting to learn as much as I can about the order entry features and abilities, and how they tie in with the broker side (specifically MB).

      I am also specifically looking for if there is a way to place a stop limit order via mouse click, on superDOM. I want to use the mouse only, and superDOM, to place a buy stop limit+.05 order, and a short stop limit-.05 thru ARCA, sandwiching the current best bid/ask (to catch a breakout from a range). That would create 2 lines on the NT charts, which I could move/modify to be placed at the exact desired levels.
      I know ARCA does not accept stop orders, so the stop orders would reside on NT or MB's servers until hit.

      Can NT+MB do this? If not, what is the closest thing to it that NT+MB can do?

      Thank You

        NT routes orders through MBTX (I believe is the name for their smart order routing) and you will have to ask MBT how these stop orders are handled. Yes you can place orders via single mouse clicks using the SuperDOM. You can view the documentation (via NinjaTrader Help menu) for explanations on how to submit orders.
