    Monitoring orders placed manually

    I trade manually (often but not always using ATM) and I want to write a code to monitor the active orders to alert me if I am doing mistakes and maybe even cancel bad orders automatically.
    What's the way to correct object and possible example to read orders in the real account?
    Thank you

    Hello giogio1,

    Thanks for your post.

    There would not be a supported way to detect manual trades and manage them programmatically in NinjaTrader 7. In NinjaTrader 8, you can use the AddOn Framework and create a NinjaScript that:
    1. Loops through the Account.Orders collection for the account to find active orders
    2. Subscribes to Account OrderUpdate events to look for any newly opened orders.
    3. Tracks these Orders in the script so they can be changed or cancelled with Account.Change or Account.Cancel
    I have included NinjaTrader 8 documentation on these items below if you wish to investigate further.

    Order object - https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...n-us/order.htm

    Account.Orders - https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...rs_account.htm

    Account.OrderUpdate - https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...rderupdate.htm

    Account.Change - https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...-us/change.htm

    Account.Cancel - https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...-us/cancel.htm

    Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
