Default Accumulation Strategy

NT8 does not know how to ping TDA for the Accumulation of Equities held, so when NinjaTrader is turned off, Position(s) held are lost. Can I store Orders as they fill to a file that reads/writes? If there is a system for storage long term Trades. The goal is to use the Hedge to grow the initial In. If I have to store off program, what file-format/array/... would be the most efficient way?

Hello GTBrooks,

Thank you for your post.

You could write Orders, Executions, and Positions to an external file. However, NinjaTrader would not be able to read the files and have the information sent into NinjaTrader again.

To write to an external file you will need to use NinjaScript. We have a sample on reading and writing at the following link: http://ninjatrader.com/support/forum...ead.php?t=3477

You will need to access the account object in NinjaScript to add handlers for the OrdrerUpdate, ExecutionUpdate and PositionUpdate.
For information the account in NinajScript please visit the following link: http://ninjatrader.com/support/helpG...ount_class.htm

Please let me know if you have any questions.

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. View Full Risk Disclosure.

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.
