    Get Previous Trade signal Direction

    Is there a possibility of knowing the last trade direction to act on subsequent trades? For example, if the last signal from an RSI was a buy, I only want the next initiate trade to be a sell even though there are buy signals until the sell signal presents itself.

    I see that there is Name method and OrderAction noted here: https://ninjatrader.com/support/helpGuides/nt8/en-us/

    but is there a way to keep track of previous OrderAction on initiate?

    Hello Boonfly8,

    Thanks for your post.

    There is not a direct way of detecting what a previous order's direction was without custom logic. For example, you could create a variable that you control that gets set whenever a new entry order is submitted.

    Code:
    EnterLong(); 
    LastDirection = 1;
    
    -OR-
    EnterShort();
    LastDirection = 2;
    You could also use Position.MarketPosition to determine where your strategies position is.

    Position.MarketPosition - https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...etposition.htm

    Please let us know if we can be of further assistance.
