    How to determine signal names of open position?

    Hello.

    Say, I have position, opened by 3 orders with different names:

    PHP Code:

    protected override void OnStateChange()
    {
        if (
    State == State.SetDefaults)
        {
            
    Calculate                Calculate.OnBarClose;
            
    IsUmanaged             false;
            
    EntriesPerDirection        10;
            
    EntryHandling            EntryHandling.AllEntries;
        }
    }

    protected 
    override void OnBarUpdate()
    {            
        if( 
    State != State.Realtime ) return;
        
            
    EnterLong1"Signal_1" );
            
    EnterLong1"Signal_2" );
            
    EnterLong1"Signal_2" );

    How can I determine entries names ("Signal_1", "Signal_2", "Signal_3") from which the position is composed?

    Hello fx.practic,

    Unfortunately, NinjaTrader does not provide the orders that have contributed to the current position.

    This would need to be stored yourself in a custom coded object such as an array, list, dictionary, etc.
    You would need to add the Order object from OnOrderUpdate() when the order fills, and remove the object when an opposing order using the same fromEntrySignal fills.

    I will submit a feature request on your behalf for the NinjaTrader Development to consider providing a collection of orders that have contributed to the Position.
    Once I have a tracking ID for this request I will post in this thread for future reference.


    antrux,

    I am moving your inquiry to a new thread, as this is unrelated to the current topic.

    Thank You.

    I think about this way, but hope it can be done using Position object.

    More logic, more places for great bugs.

    While internally NT still know signals names of opened position.

    Hello fx.practic,

    Thank you for your patience.

    To find a signal name, you will need to save your entries as an Order object. The order object has two properties: Name and FromEntrySignal.

    You would access you signal names like so:

    Order anOrder = EnterLong( 1, "Signal_1" );

    Print(anOrder.Name);

    Print(anorder.FromEntrySignal);

    More on the Order object here:

    If we may be of any further assistance, please let us know.
