    Imitating Chart Trader Button Behaviors using Additional buttons

    Current Scenario: I am using Chart Trader Buy/Sell Buttons along with defined ATM strategy. When using those button i have to change the quantity for the different sizes.
    What I want is:
    I want to add custom buttons on chart trader with a specified size while using the same ATM strategy as selected so that i don't have to enter the quantity every time.

    Now, i am able to add the button on chart trader to buy and sell different sizes e.g. 100, 50, 20, 10 however i am not able to see the stop loss and target marker on the chart. Also my stop loss doesn't get automatically updated when i peel off my position (partial sell). Where as if I use the original Chart Trader Buy sell buttons, it automatically adjusts my stoploss/target quantity as I peel off my position. How Can i imitate this behavior for my custom buttons.

    Thanks

    Hello gbajaj,

    Could it be the ATM orders are outside the visible display of the chart? Please right click in ChartTrader and select 'Properties'. Enable the 'Auto scale' setting and click OK. Check if you now see the ATM orders.

    What setting do you have selected for 'ATM strategy selection mode' in the ChartTrader Properties? If you set it to 'Select active ATM strategy on order submission', does the stop loss automatically update when you scale out of the position? This works for me when I test it.

    Could you please send me a screenshot that shows the buttons you added. Do you use a 3rd party add-on that allows you to create these buttons?

      Looks like i am not able to explain my question very well.

      What i want is that my custom buttons to behave similar to the predefined buttons.
      I have written the code myself and here is the Buy order for my B-100 button.

      myAccount.CreateOrder(Instrument, OrderAction.Sell, OrderType.Market, OrderEntry.Manual, TimeInForce.Day, 100, 0, 0, "", "Exit", DateTime.MaxValue, null);
      now as evident from code, it's doing it's own thing, no ATM strategy is part to the api call params here.

      My question is:
      What should I add to this code so i could use the ATM strategy current selected.

        Hello gbajaj,

        Your custom buttons wont have access to just use the existing ATM selector for an ATM, you would need to find what template is selected in that control and then use StartAtmStrategy().

        There is an example of that concept here: https://ninjatrader.com/support/foru...egy#post752775
