Backtesting NinjaScript Strategies with an intrabar granularity

Previous page Return to chapter overview Next page

You can submit orders to different Bars objects. This allows you the flexibility of submitting orders to different timeframes. Like in live trading, taking entry conditions from a 5min chart means executing your order as soon as possible instead of waiting until the next 5min bar starts building. You can achieve this by submitting your orders to a more granular secondary bar series to achieve an "intrabar" fill.

 

Key concepts in this example

Finding entry conditions on the primary bar object
Submitting orders to the secondary bar object for an intrabar fill
