Submit market order if stop order was rejected

Submits a market order in the event that a stop order is rejected for any reason.

 

Behavior as follows:

1.Stop order worse than current last traded price --> Market order submitted (desired outcome)
2.Stop order rejected due to insufficient funds --> Market order submitted and also rejected (not desired but no risk)
3.Stop order rejected due to price outside of range --> Market order submitted and likely filled (risky)
4.Stop order rejected due to limit price worse than stop price --> Market order submitted and likely filled (risky)

 

Risk

If this option is enabled, it is your responsibility to ensure that your TS EL code is sending valid stop prices to NinjaTrader otherwise you risk getting filled when you may not want to.
