MultiCharts.NET: How to set stop loss in order ?

Hi all,

I'm developing a Signal (Multicharts.net), that issues Buy and Sell orders. In addition I want to set the stop loss when the order is created. But I cannot find a parameter in the OrderCreator class to set it.

Example:

buy_order = OrderCreator.MarketNextBar(new SOrderParameters(Contracts.CreateUserSpecified(PositionSize), "Long Trade", EOrderAction.Buy));

Can someone help ? Thanks.
JohnJo.

JohnJo,

there are multiple ways to accomplish this. One could be by issuing a stop order yourself:
https://www.multicharts.com/trading-software/index.php/4.6.1_Orders
You can also issue stops using using a built-in exit, but using a separate stop order might give you more control.
Take a look at the Stop_Loss signal for an example for how to issue stops using GenerateStopLoss.

Thanks for the suggestion. I've tested the "Stop_Loss" signal yesterday, but it does not generate a "hard" stop on the chart.

I'm looking for a signal that once or after the position is opened, creates the SL level on the chart.

If there are no examples, guess I'm gonna have to code a new one using:

stopLossLong = OrderCreator.Stop(new SOrderParameters(Contracts.CreateUserSpecified(PositionSize), EOrderAction.Sell));

stopLossShort = OrderCreator.Stop(new SOrderParameters(Contracts.CreateUserSpecified(PositionSize), EOrderAction.BuyToCover));

Do I need to specify the " OrderExit.FromAll " parameter ? Or it automatically closes all the contracts ?

Thanks again,
JohnJo.

JohnJo,

can you show an example of "a "hard" stop on the chart" as in general there shouldn't be a difference in how Multicharts displays the orders via GenerateStopLoss or an individual stop order?

Sorry I was not clear with the "hard" stop comment.

What I mean is: on the chart, I cannot see the stop loss created. Stop_Loss signal is attached properly, the order is created manually but the SL is not showing on the chart.

I've been thinking about another option:
-set the "Exit strategies" with option "Auto Attach as Exit Order",

but not sure if when a Signal creates the order, will the "Exit strategies" be automatically attached ?

JohnJo.

JohnJo,

it sounds like either the stop wasn't triggered yet or in case it was real time the chart trading wasn't enabled, which in turn would not show the orders on the chart.

Could it be because the parameter IOGMode is disabled ?

[IOGMode(IOGMode.Disabled)]

(does not generate intra-bar orders)

JohnJo,

if you don't use the built-in GenerateStopLoss within conditional statements the stop will be in place directly after the entry by design even with IOG disabled.
I am afraid without seeing the code and inputs you used and the situations (screenshots) where the stop should have been in place one could only speculate about the cause here.
