    Auto reconnect to TWS after daily shutdown

    Having finally got my Vista64 computer working with both standalone TWS and NT, I want to start using FX Pro. Three questions, please :

    1. Most of my trades are swing trades, ie. greater than 1 day duration : is there any facility to automatically reconnect NT to TWS after its daily shutdown period ?
    2. If not, am I correct in thinking that stop and target orders will reside on the IB servers and should therefore execute if hit (assuming not simulated orders & appropriately configured TWS) ?
    3. I see I can set the scale size in the FX Pro Properties window : can this be configured for each currency, as IB have different minimum lot sizes per currency ?

    Tks,

    J.

    Thank you for your post.

    1- This is not a supported feature.

    2- This link has details regarding this:
    http://www.ninjatrader-support.com/v...ead.php?t=5349

    3-Here you have two options: a) enter the Qty you desire in the DOM, then enter an ATM strategy>right click the ATM Strategy window>Manage ATM Templates, and save an ATM with a name that is unique to the currency you want to trade. Then do this again with a different Qty and name it a unique name for the currency you want to trade. Now you can select the ATM you want which will auto-fill the Qty field (scale qty). You will still need to change the instrument.

    Or b) you can use two Fx Pro's with the settings you want in Properties>Scale quantity, and in the Instrument dropdown. Then save the workspace File>Workspaces>Save As. Now you can pull up the workspace with the Order qty and instrument you want already in the in the FX Pro.
