What are you going to use, for orders, Stop orders and/or Limit orders ?
The difficulty will be how to manage the unfilled orders in C2 (they have to be cancelled after something is triggered, opposite signal, or after x minutes, or another trigger of your choice), and how synchronize your NT position with the C2 position (partial fill for instance).
And being able to read the xml sent back by C2.

The other difficulty, is the testing process, as C2 allows only 3 signals (from mémory, not sure), then after you'll have to pay for a testing. And just 3 bullets for this looks not enough.

A bit tricky, fun, but not so easy.

All orders are entered with stop limits and exited with either limit or market depending on the condition met.

I already have the test system on C2, so that is not a problem.

I have received two proposals; one for $500 and another for $800. Be nice to share the cost with another futures.io (formerly BMT) member.
