Call ATM Strategy on an automated strategy to control position

Hello,

How can I call an ATM Strategy on an automated ninjascript strategy to control my position?

I have a strategy (VervoortMACrossover) that is working realy good but I want to control my position so I can go breakeven + trailstop.

I have no idea how to doo that.

Can some one help me?

Best regards,
JJ

I submitted a template for this on the NT forums a while back. The link for the page is Links and Downloads Manager - NinjaTrader Support Forum and it's the one called "SampleATMCancelStrategy" near the bottom of the page.

Hope it helps!

Try this

In Variables

privateint trailstop = 10;



protectedoverridevoid OnBarUpdate()

if (Position.MarketPosition == MarketPosition.Long)
{
// Once the price is greater than entry price+ ticks, set stop loss to breakeven
if (Close[0] > Position.AvgPrice - trailstop * TickSize)
{
SetStopLoss(CalculationMode.Price, Position.AvgPrice - trailstop * TickSize);
}
}



In region properties

[Description("")]
[GridCategory(
"Parameters")]
publicint TrailStop
{
get { return trailstop; }
set { trailstop = Math.Max(1, value); }
}


adjust your trailstop accordingly for breakeven set it to 0

Hello Mrticks,

I found your sample template on ninjatrader support forum and I would like to use it since I am not able to program some decent trailing stop loss strategy via strategy wizard.

I have three questions:
1. can I change name of the ATM templates - where in your code I need to change it?
2. how I can merge my conditions with your strategy - should I just copy and paste into on bar update session?
3. is it backtesteble. I read in ninja help that ATM strategy is not backtesteble?

Thank you very much for your feedback in advance.

Miroslav

Hello Miroslav,

I have not used NT in over 5 years but I will try to help!

1. Look for this section in the code, this is where you need to edit your ATM template names to match what you have created locally.
 
Code
           // Submits an entry limit order at the current low price to initiate an ATM Strategy if both order id and strategy id are in a reset state
            // **** YOU MUST HAVE AN ATM STRATEGY TEMPLATE NAMED 'TF_long_3W_3BR' and 'TF_short_3W_3BR' CREATED IN NINJATRADER (SUPERDOM FOR EXAMPLE) FOR THIS TO WORK  you can create your own****
                        if (orderIdL.Length == 0  
                                && atmStrategyIdL.Length == 0
								&& FirstTickOfBar
                                && Close [1] <= Open [1]
							    && High  [1] + PrevBarsPlusTicks * TickSize > GetCurrentBid())
                               
                        {
                                atmStrategyIdL = GetAtmStrategyUniqueId();
                                orderIdL = GetAtmStrategyUniqueId();
                                orderBarL = CurrentBar;
                                AtmStrategyCreate(Cbi.OrderAction.Buy, OrderType.Stop, 0, High[1] + PrevBarsPlusTicks * TickSize, TimeInForce.Day, orderIdL, "TF_long_3W_3BR", atmStrategyIdL);	
			    
						}
                        if (orderIdS.Length == 0  
                                && atmStrategyIdS.Length == 0  
                                && FirstTickOfBar
                				&& Close [1] >= Open [1]
                				&& Low   [1] - PrevBarsMinusTicks * TickSize < GetCurrentAsk())
                               
                        {
                                atmStrategyIdS = GetAtmStrategyUniqueId();
                                orderIdS = GetAtmStrategyUniqueId();
                                orderBarS = CurrentBar;
                                AtmStrategyCreate(Cbi.OrderAction.Sell, OrderType.Stop, 0, Low[1] - prevBarsMinusTicks * TickSize, TimeInForce.Day, orderIdS, "TF_short_3W_3BR", atmStrategyIdS);

2. Yes, look for this section and insert your code in their:
 
Code
  /// <summary>
        /// Called on each bar update event (incoming tick)
        /// </summary>
        protected override void OnBarUpdate()
3. I could never get NT to backtest with an ATM being called via a strategy!


Have fun!

Hello Mrticks,

thank you for your replay. Sorry for delay I am trying to fix overfill issues until I will proceed with adding ATM strategy.

I am using unirenko charts and it seems it is opening extra positions in high volatility times.

I am trying to use bool logic to prevent extra entry if trade was once triggered.

Can I come back to you when I fix my overfill issue?

Thank you

Miroslav
