    Volumetric Chart with an auto execute feature?

    Does anyone know if there is a way to create an auto execute feature on a footprint type chart that will automatically take trades when a certain number of stacked imbalances occur?

    Hello andrewtrades,

    Thanks for your question.

    This would be possible with a NinjaScript strategy that is designed to work with the Order Flow + Volumetric bars.

    Accessing Volumetric bars programmatically has to be done through written code and cannot be done with the Strategy Builder, however if you are new to NinjaScript, I suggest using the Strategy Builder to get more acquainted with NinjaScript strategies.

    Here is a link to the Volumetric Bars Data Access documentation - https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...tric_bars2.htm

    Below is some educational information on NinjaScript strategies.

    General NinjaScript education

    Simple NinjaScript strategies can be built using the Strategy Builder and more complex and robust strategies can be written by hand.

    Please see the Strategy Builder 301 and NinjaScript Editor 401 courses to get acquainted with NinjaScript strategies. These videos are publicly available.

    NinjaScript Editor 401 — https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K8v_2ONBbqI

    The Managed Approach documentation explains how Strategy Builder and Managed NinjaScript strategies can be written.

    NinjaScript strategies are then deployed against one account. The strategy processes historical data to identify past trade signals and to develop the strategy position. This is separate from the Account's Position. The calculated orders from historical data and the strategy position are then used by the Start Behavior to configure how the strategy should handle this position when the strategy is first enabled.

    WaitUntilFlat waits until the calculated position is closed so the strategy only starts trading when it sees itself in a flat position.

    ImmediatelySubmit will allow the strategy to submit historically calculated orders immediately when the strategy is enabled. This would be used when we know where the strategy position is when we enable the strategy, and is used particularly for re-enabling strategies so they can resume positions and orders.

    Sync Account is additional option that has the strategy submit an additional order to sync the strategy position to the account position. This should not be confused with syncing the strategy position to the account position.

    It is important to understand the Start Behaviors and their relation to the Strategy and Account Position. Please see below for more details.

    When writing more robust strategies in the NinjaScript Editor, please refer to our Educational materials and Reference Samples.

    Also to consider, a NinjaScript Consultant could build an automated trading strategy that accomplishes this at your request. If that interests you, please let us know and we can have a representative of our EcoSystem provide additional information.

    We look forward to assisting.
