    Order labeling

    Currently, Ninja Trader uses the signalName and fromEntryName parameters of the Enter/Exit procedures to label the orders on the chart, trade lists, and other output screens. It's my understanding that the signalName and fromEntryName parameters also help uniquely identify an order for modifying that order in subsequent Enter/Exit procedure calls. (As an aside, this should be stated in the documentation). Thus once a signalName or fromEntryName parameter Name is assigned to an order, the Name should not be changed.

    Complex trading systems evaluate multiple entry and exit criteria which might change frequently. For example the criteria for setting a stop price could change as a trade develops and the stop price would be adjusted as the criteria changes. For the purpose of analyzing trading systems, I would like to know what criteria set my stop price. I was changing signalName with each stop price modification using the Exit procedures, but that did not work and led to strange results from Ninja.

    I would like a way to label entry and exit orders on the charts and in output where the labels can be changed during the life of an open order.

    Thanks,

    David
