    Trade different instrument than primary symbol

    I have strategies that work with the NQ (nasdaq futures).

    I would like to base the entries on NQ but actually place the trades on MNQ (micro contracts).

    I believe I can add NQ as a secondary time frame using that for the logic and run the strategy on the MNQ chart.

    Is there an easier way to do this?

    Even though MNQ and NQ trade at the same price levels the fills do not match, often MNQ doesn't even enter a trade. I understand this happens because they are different datasets.

    Hello sdauteuil,

    What you described would generally be the easiest way or to make a multi series script.

    For the situation you described a strategy builder strategy would generate the code as you are asking. You could apply the strategy to the MNQ and add NQ as a second series. The builder does not allow code to be executed on the second series so you are only referencing the NQ data there and executing on the MNQ.

    The fills likely will not match as you noted, these are two separate instruments with independent volumes.

    I look forward to being of further assistance.
