    Strategy that places stop 1 tick below the entry/signal bar

    Hello.
    I simply need help building or finding a strategy that automatically places a stop 1 tick below the bar i enter .. does this exist and if so please help

    Hello Snowman1517,

    That type of stop could be created by using a strategy or an ATM strategy. An ATM strategy could place targets at X ticks based on the fill of the entry order. If you wanted to use the actual bar price a NinjaScript strategy could be used for that task. You can find an example of a strategy builder strategy that uses a custom price for a target in the following post: https://ninjatrader.com/support/foru...596#post806596

    Please let me know if I may be of additional help.

      How would I go about doing that with a ATM strategy?

        It exits, but it's not worth it. I backtested it already and can tell you that it's not the most profitable way in risk management. Yet, you decide.

          Hello Snowman1517,

          The ATM is based on the entry price so you can offset by 1 tick as a target by just entering 1 as the offset. For the bar price a ninjascript strategy would still be needed there.

              Hello Snowman1517,

              You can see the public youtube channel for webinars that cover ATM use here: https://youtu.be/Gnyx8RSp3EI

              To do what was described you could use 1 tick offset as the targets offset in the ATM template.

              For a NinjaScript strategy you would need to follow the sample in the post #2 link, that would be how to price a target order while using the builder. You can use a variable or a custom series to store prices that can later be used for exit type orders.
