    Creating a strategy in Strategy Builder using two different futures contracts

    Is it possible to create a strategy in the strategy builder to enter long and short trades based on two different futures contracts? For example, ES and ZN. I overlaid a line showing ZN on the ES chart. If there is a cross, I'd like the strategy to enter either a long or short entry.

    Hello LTWCI,
    Thanks for your post.

    This would be possible.

    Is it your intent to submit your orders to one or both of these instruments or are you simply using these two instruments as a condition for entry?

      Hi Josh,

      My intent is to have the strategy submit the order to one of the instruments upon cross.

        LTWCI,

        You will need to add the additional instrument on the 'Add Data Series' screen of the builder. To add a data series, with a different time frame, please see the section, "Understanding the Additional data screen" here: https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...er_screens.htm

        Once the data series is added you can access it in the conditions screens where needed by selecting the correct data series (it defaults to the chart bars).

        Here is a short video that demonstrates a multi-time frame condition on the chart and then replicates and proves the condition in the strategy builder: https://Paul-ninjaTrader.tinytake.co...QzMF83NDQ3NDEz
