    Automated strategy instrument question

    Hello,

    I'm checking to see if its possible to run an automated strategy on a certain instrument but have it take trades on a different one... In my particular example I'd like to run my strategy on NQ but take trades on MNQ. I have tried just running the strategy on MNQ but it produces completely different results as the instrument mechanics and tick volume is different. I use tick charts and I've played with intervals to achieve the same amount of bars per day but even then the indicator I use for the strategy does not act the same on MNQ as it does on NQ. Hope my question makes sense. Let me know

    Thanks
    Michael

    Hello Michael,

    Welcome to the NinjaTrader forums!

    It is possible for the strategy to place trades to an added series and this must be coded into the script with AddDataSeries().

    AddDataSeries(string instrumentName)

    Below is a link to a reference sample on adding series.
