Modifying entry and exit orders

Pending orders in NinjaTrader may be modified by clicking to select the order and clicking once more at the new price point. This approach is more effective than drag and drop because it eliminates the potential errors made by accidentally letting go of your mouse button and dropping an order on the wrong price.

1.Click using your left mouse button on the order you wish to modify.
2.Once selected, you will see the cursor change to a hand from an arrow, then choose the price you are modifying the order to and click using your left mouse button to complete the modify process.
