    Enter OCO Order?

    Hi

    Using managed orders can I do something like:

    Code:
    EnterLongLimit(1, ask - (2  * TickSize), "ENTER");
    EnterLongStopMarket(1, ask + (2  * TickSize), "ENTER");
    and have it basically act as an OCO order? I'm doing something similar with exit orders and seem to be getting the expected OCO behavior. But with the enter orders it only seems to be respecting the first order.

    Do I have to use unmanaged orders?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Hello calebsandfort,

    Thanks for your post and welcome to the NinjaTrader forums!

    In the Managed Approach, under the "Internal Order Handling Rules that Reduce Unwanted Positions", under the "Methods that generate orders to enter a position will be ignored if:" there is this applicable rule: The strategy position is flat and an order submitted by an enter method (EnterLongLimit() for example) is active and the order is used to open a position in the opposite direction Reference link: https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...d_approach.htm

    Staying with the managed approach, you could replace the limit orders with code that checks the price against the two entry levels and then when price hits either level place a market order to fill immediately. You would want to run this part of your code in the calculate mode of OnEachTick.

    For example:

    if (your conditions to enter )
    {
    double limitPrice = ask - (2 * TickSize);
    double stoplimitPrice = ask + (2 * TickSize)

    if (Close[0] <= limitPrice || Close[0] >= stoplimitPrice)
    {
    EnterLong();
    }
    }

    Notes: When using Calculate.OnEachTick, Close[0] = current price. You would need additional logic to control the flow to limit to one entry.

    Alternatively, you could use the Unmanaged approach which does not restrict orders.
