    2 Strategies Same Symbol

    Say I have 2 strategies running at the same time with the same symbol and same account. 1 strategy enters long then the second strategy enters short that same symbol, what would happen?
    • Strategy 2 closes the position from strategy 1 but does not enter short leaving it flat
    • Strategy 2 closes the position from strategy 1 and enters a new short position
    • NinjaTrader error pops up and nothing happens, Strategy 1 continues long

    Hello JakeOfSpades,

    Thanks for your post.

    Strategies will maintain their virtual positions but when using one account there can only be one account position on the same instrument. The strategies would continue submitting real-time orders which can leave the strategy in an unsync'd condition (between the strategy position and the account position). Even though the account is flat and if a strategy is long, once it reaches its stop or profit target, it will issue a sell order and then the account will be 1 short but the strategy will be flat (virtually).
    We recommend that you do not run two or more strategies on the same instrument and same account. You could consider adding a second/sub-account that would allow you to run the strategies independent of each other.
