I'm noticing that when my strategies simply reverse from either long to short or short to long, everything looks good and is calculated correctly. For my entries, I'm using EnterShortStopLimit and EnterLongStopLimit.
When I use the SetTrailStop method for managing stops, my orders to reverse market direction are usually ignored. This seems to be a direct result of staying in the trade until the trailing stop is seen to fruition.
Is there a way to efficiently code an NT strategy so that I can have reversal orders as well as a SetTrailStop functionality?
Can this be done in the managed approach or does this have to be unmanaged?
Kind of figured this one out as per NT support staff:
Ninja Trader is protecting my strategy from an overfill. It is possible that if I cancel my SetTrailStop generated order, my reversal order can be filled before my SetTrailStop order is fully cancelled...
There are multiple solutions for an overfill. Would anybody care to share overfill solutions that work elegantly for them?
