Trade management strategy wanted

Hi guys,

I am looking for someone to code a trade management strategy that I can use to call on in the ninjatrader strategy wizard. The trade management would allow settings to trail lows/highs or swings or an email. I would also like the entry to not trigger if a plot i usecin the strategy is within a 1:1 distance of the entry to the selected stop in the trade management stop location.

If anyone is interested please message me.

Thanks in advance.

Just to understand, you want to code a "trade management strategy", which can be used in NT Strategy Wizard, just like a smarter SetTrailStop() ?

Hi Sam,
I am not familiar withthe syntax you stated but Yes. I would like to select in the strategy to either trail behind bar hi/low or a swing hi/low which would obviously need to incorporate the swing settings also.

I don't think you can do that using the Strategy Wizard, you'll need to open the code generated, and code few things yourself...

I thought you could call on strategies for trade management from within the Strategy Wizard.... but looking at it right now I think you are right. I can't see an option to call an existing strategy.

In general best way to approach this is to code an indicator to do what you want, then just use the indicator in your strategy.

For example, you could use SuperTrend as a starting point for your indicator.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
