Default modification of attach indicator to DOM

Hi,

Attaching indicators to DOM and using as a trail is very cool function. Can you improve it? and this function implement it when you create a custom ATM strategy?

Hello Obelixtrader,

Thanks for your post.

If I understand correctly, you are curious about using ATM strategies with the Attach To Indicator functionality in the SuperDOM and not developing a custom AddOn?

ATM strategies can utilize this functionality to enter an ATM strategy by selecting an ATM strategy, placing your order, and then attaching it to your indicator. Once the limit order fills, the ATM strategy will be entered. This functionality can also be used to attach an ATM strategy's stop or target to an indicator plot.

For the thread's reference, attaching to indicators is demonstrated in the ATM 301 webinar. I'll provide a link to a recorded version below.

How would you like this functionality improved?

I look forward to being of further assistance.

Current you must first sumit order ( I use market order)with ATM strategy then to click on stop order and then set indicator to stop order than set offset and submit and then will stop trail .When you add this function direct to Custom ATM strategy after immidiate execution stop trail will move immidiately as the attached indicator will move. Markets are fast too many mouse clicks.

Hello Obelixtrader,

We have a feature request tracking interest in being able to use the Attach To Indicator functionality when configuring the ATM strategy. I'll submit a vote on your behalf. The ticket ID is SFT-2719.

We collect interest in feature requests before determining if the feature should be implemented. For that reason we cannot offer an ETA. Upon implementation, the number for the ticket ID can be publicly found in the Release Notes page of the help guide. I will provide a link below.

Release Notes - https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...ease_notes.htm

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