    manually moving stops

    I manually moved my stop on my live account when I was up and it just closed my trade. Made me miss out on 2x my profits.
    I back test on the market replay playback and manually move my stop, it stays in the trade.
    Is this normal? It seems like it didnt do this before? thanks

    I think I need to disable my strategy before moving the stop then re-enable it?

      Hello ezrollin,

      Thanks for your post.

      Is the stop order being submitted as a Set method or an Exit method? (such as SetStopLoss() or ExitLongStopLimit())

      If the stop order is a Set method, is the order moving when bar closes, or based on the Calculate mode the strategy is set to?

      If the stop order is an Exit method, where are you calling the Exit method in your script?

      If you call the Exit method just once in OnExecutionUpdate(), then you could move the stop order.

      See this reference sample which demonstrates using OnExecutionUpdate(): https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...and_onexec.htm

      Also, see this help guide documentation: https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...tionupdate.htm

      Let us know if we may assist further.
