Default Daily Open

Is the Daily Open included in Strategy Builder? I want to use it in a strategy. And can it be either the ETH or RTH daily open?
Thank you.

Hello Trader17,

Thanks for your inquiry.

The CurrentDayOHL indicator can be used to get the current day's open. This will be calculated off the data series in which the strategy/indicator is applied and the Trading Hours template of that data series will be used. If you wish to differentiate between ETH and RTH separate from the data series you apply the strategy to, an additional data series must be added to the strategy with your Trading Hours template specified. The indicator will then need to calculate using that data series.

For the thread's reference I will provide some publicly available resources for using the Strategy Builder, as well as reference for using the CurrentDayOHL indicator and a guide for creating a Multi Time Frame NinjaScript.

Please let us know if we can be of further assistance.

Futures, foreign currency and options trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones financial security or lifestyle. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

CFTC Rules 4.41 - Hypothetical or Simulated performance results have certain limitations, unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not been executed, the results may have under-or-over compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profit or losses similar to those shown.
