    Buy/Sell Stop Straddle Code

    I am trying to write program to automatically place a Buy Stop above the market and a Sell Stop below the market at the same time (OCO) at a certain time of day. I can get this to work using the following function for only one of the stops but not the other:

    EnterLongStopMarket(Convert.ToInt32(DefaultQuantit y) , (Bars.GetAsk(CurrentBar) + 10 * TickSize) , "StraddleAbove")

    I have read the Programming Help on Advanced Order Placement and Order Handling Rules as well as various threads on this forum discussing these topics but I need some help from experienced programmers to explain/show how to exactly implement as I am new to this. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Hello anders0n,

    Thank you for your note.

    You would not be able to submit both enter long and enter short orders at the same time due to Internal Order Handling Rules. You can view the Internal Order Handling Rules at the following link:
    https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...d_approach.htm

    If you wish to work with Unmanaged Orders you may do so and the orders would not be ignored in this case: https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...d_approach.htm

    Please let me know if I may be of further assistance.
