    Incorporating stop losses in strategy builder

    I'm trying to incorporate my own entry and exit for my trades. I enter with a stop order at the previous high (high[1]) and exit at the current close (close[0]). It is not posting correctly on my chart.
    I've attached screenshots to better explain what I'm trying to convey. I've set it up to calculate on each tick, to start at "wait until flat", and I set it up at unique entries. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Hello escobar63,

    Thanks for your post.

    Are you showing historical made trades on a chart, or historical trades made in the strategy analyzer or are these real time (or market replay) trades?

    When you run your strategy do you see any error messages listed in the "log" tab of the control center related to the strategy?

    If these are live trades and you are using Calculate.OnEachTick, then the value of Close[0] (shows as DefaultInput[0] in the strategy builder) is the current current price and ytou are submitting an exit order at the current price.

    Also, stop orders are limit type orders and these orders are automatically canceled if not filled in the bar that they are submitted. From the help guide, "By default, orders submitted via Entry() and Exit() methods automatically cancel at the end of a bar if not re-submitted": https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...d_approach.htm
