    Automated strategy - Trade /MES off /ES chart

    My automated strategy will use the /ES chart to find trades but I want to trade /MES contracts.
    I know how to do this with the Chart Trader but cant seem to find a way to do it when using a automated strategy.
    How do I go about this?
    I am currently using the Strategy Builder for this strategy.

    Thanks!

    Hello Ousher,

    Thanks for your post.

    Using the Strategy Builder, you would need to apply the strategy to a chart of MES as the strategy builder can only submit orders to the chart instruments' primary bars. In the strategy, you would need to add the ES under the "Additional data" window.

    In the conditions builder you would need to use the added data series either directly in price or through an indicator. In either case, you would have to access the added data series.

    I've created a short video that shows how to add and use the ES 12-20 when your chart would be MES 12-20: https://Paul-ninjaTrader.tinytake.co...Ml8xNTQxMzIwMw
