    Orders Cancelling

    I have a simple stategy that waits for the price to fall below a certain figure before then entering a buy stop order at a higher level. If I apply this to a 1 minute chart, if the order is not filled in the same bar that the order was placed then it appears that the order is cancelled (at least in simulation mode this is the case). Is there a way I can stop the order from being cancelled?

    use the overload
    Code:
    EnterLongLimit(int barsInProgressIndex, bool liveUntilCancelled, int quantity,  double  limitPrice, string signalName)
    set liveUntilCancelled to true.

      Thanks for the quick reply. Looks like I might have to start learning about coding then. I was hoping that I could do everything using the strategy wizard but maybe that's not possible.

        Shanghai, this option is unfortunately not available in the Strategy Wizard.

          Back to bukkan's very helpful post if the order does not cancel what is to stop another order from being placed at each subsequent bar? The strategy specifies one entry only but will that be one per bar or one in total if I am specifying 1 minute bars for example?

            Shanghai,
            just create the strategy with the wizard and when you are done unlock the same and just replace the EnterLongLimit and EnterShortLimit with the overload as i mentioned.

            the -ive is that you wont be able to edit the strategy later but you could always create a new strategy (with similar conditions) anytime later.

              Thanks bukkan, much appreciated. However I've tried your suggestion but it gives me a number of coding errors when I try to paste it in. This should work for NT7?

                Shanghai, can you please attach the script so we can have a look why it would not compile for you? Also: ensure the error are not found in another script - as NT compiles all scripts into one DLL for runtime use all scripts currently installed have to 'error free' and in so called compilable state.

                Thanks,

                  Bertrand, the code as it standsbefore I make bukkan's replacement is shown below. From his instructions it seems that I should simply replace the entire highlighted blue text with his overload. He included a long limit order rather than a long stop but that is simple to change.

                  Apologies for the dumb nature of my posts. I thought this would be an easy strategy to produce and I have never even had to unlock the NinjaTrader code until this week.

                  Code:
                   
                  // This namespace holds all strategies and is required. Do not change it.
                  namespace NinjaTrader.Strategy

                  public class Trigger : Strategy

                    Shanghai, try replacing the blue snippet with this below -

                    EnterLongStop(0, true, Shares, Entry, "");

                    The overload bukkan posted was the one to use correct, as it would offer setting the liveUntilCancelled bool so the expiring order does not have to be resubmitted on each bar, however the parameters it has still all need to be filled in accordingly like in my snippet above.

                    Thanks,

                        Backtest Strategy on a continious futures contract

                        Hello,

                        I want to backtest a strategy on the Crude Oil futures continious contract
                        from Jan 17 2011 to Apr 17 2011.

                        How do I do that?

                        Thx

                          rzeemeijer, if you're using NinjaTrader 7, all you have to do is select those dates for the crude oil backtest and NT will automatically download all of the older contract data and merge it and run the tests over the merged data.
