    Time based order entry?

    I would like to place an order to buy the ES at the 9:30 EST print. This order would be to buy 1 contact 4 pts above the 9:30 print with a Stop Loss 4 pts below ( at the 9:30 print) and a profit target 1/3 the previous days ATR while also creating another order to sell 1 contract 4 pts below the 9:30 print with a stop loss at the open print and the same profit target as the long (1/3 the previous days ATR)

    Is this possible?

    Hello Snowmansteve88,

    Thank you for your post.

    You would be able to create an alert with a time-based condition that will submit an order with an attached ATM strategy. Here is the publicly available Alerts video tutorial to demonstrate how to configure alerts in NinjaTrader 8.

    Here is the Configuring Alerts Help Guide to assist you further.


    ATM Strategies are designed to provide discretionary traders with semi-automated features to manage their positions. With this feature, users can easily apply stop losses and profit targets to orders. Here is a publicly available video that will quickly explain an overview of this feature.

    Here is the Help material to explain the details of using this feature within NinjaTrader.

      Thank you Shawn B., Will the time-based order be able to place 2 OCO orders. One 4 pts below the 9:30:00 EST print with a stop-loss order and a profit target order and a second simultaneous order 4 pts above the 9:30:00 EST print with a stop-loss order and a profit target order?

        Hello,

        Thanks for your reply.


        Unfortunately, this type of functionality is not available by default with alert orders and would need to be custom coded.

        NinjaTrader is extensible in that you can create custom indicators using NinjaScript which is based on the modern C# programming language.
        Click here for information on programming in NinjaScript

        If you have limited time or programming capabilities, NinjaTrader Ecosystem is partnered with a number of consultants who could code this indicator at your direction. If you would like more information regarding consultants please let me know.

        Please let me know if I may be of any further assistance.

          Hi, yeah, I second that notion, and hope you can put time stops in the next update. I am trying to craft one out of "Bars since Entry", but it doen't take my Series, Ninjascript cant compile. I also thought about using the TimeSeries block, but the only way to reference the time in the trade is Bars Since Entry, and how do I get that to work on a price-based data series, Im trying to get time. Thanks, all help appreciated.
