Using CancelOrder() method to cancel orders

Previous page Return to chapter overview Next page

When using NinjaTrader's Enter() and Exit() methods, the default behavior is to automatically expire them at the end of a bar unless they are resubmitted to keep them alive. Sometimes you may want more flexibility in this behavior and wish to submit orders as live-until-cancelled. When orders are submitted as live-until-cancelled, the way to cancel them is by using the CancelOrder() method.
