Hello Ronhb107,

I’m unaware of any reference samples which do exactly what you’re looking for however have provided some links which would help you create this as part of a custom strategy.

Method Position.AvgPrice would give you the breakeven for which you could base your trailing stop off.

You might find the following reference example helpful for setting your stop and or trailing stop.

You will find Reference Samples online as well as some Tips and Tricks for both indicators and strategies:

These samples can be downloaded, installed and modified from NinjaTrader and hopefully serve as a good base for your custom works.

There is a also a growing library of user submitted custom indicators (100+) that can be downloaded from our support form. Please look in the NinjaScript File Sharing section of our support forum as you may find what you are looking for there: http://www.ninjatrader.com/support/f...splay.php?f=37

Default ATM Strategy code

Hi Alan:

I am trying to modify strategy "ProfitTargetTrailingStop_101b" to simply manage a manually entered position.

What I need is the following:

1. Have the strategy available in the list within the ATM Strategy drop down. This way, if I have several coded strategies, I can select which strategy to use. I think using AtmStrategyCreate() might be the approach, but I do not want to create an entry (position) programmatically.
2. Have the code simply recognize the manual entry (whether long or short) and capture its ID.

I appreciate the assistance.

Hello Ron,

It would not be possible to have your custom strategy available for selection in the ATM drop down.

It would also not be possible to attach a strategy to a manual order.

Please let us know if you need further assistance.
