Account Flatten Indicator

Does anyone know of an indicator that will the flatten the account when a specific profit or loss target is reached? I have one that flattens the chart, but looking for one that flattens the entire account.

A stop order? I am not sure what you mean by "I have one that flattens the chart but not the entire account."

Futures Edge on FIO

How much money do you need to trade futures successfully?

I recall looking at reading account value from an indicator (vs strategy) in NT 7 over a year ago.

Maybe a better way but accessing account data from an indicator is not straightforward however Gomi did some work using a SQL database patch (I have it installed, it works to display the values nicely on a live account).

Follow the entire thread. If nothing more obvious available, could be a step to what you want (if not a completely inelegant answer).
