    ^Tick index based strategy

    I am trying to build a strategy using the ^Tick index you provide as the trigger, I would like it to buy the ES 12-20 whenever it reaches a -500 value, I am already doing this via a custom alert but I wanted to know how to replicate it as a strategy in order to be able to analyse it, thank you

    Hello rdeste911,

    Thanks for your post.

    If you are new to creating strategies, I would suggest using the Strategy builder which does not require programming and offers a similar interface as what you have already done with an Alert.

    Here are the educational resource available on the strategy builder:
    Free live webinar every other Thursday at 4:00 PM EST, through this link to all webinars: https://ninjatrader.com/PlatformTraining
    Previous recording of the Strategy Builder 301 webinar: https://youtu.be/HCyt90GAs9k?list=PL...auWXkWe0Nf&t=2
    Help guide for the strategy builder: https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...gy_builder.htm

    In general, what you would in the Strategy Builder would be to add the ^Tick series in the "Additional data" window. This will bring that series in for you to use. The strategy will adopt and use the chart bars of any chart you apply it to and is where the orders would be sent.

    In the conditions builder, you would create the condition is the Close price of the tick series less than or equal to -500 to enter long. Alternately you could also check to see if the close price of the ^tick series has crossed below the value of -500.
