Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

Order Management Question

How do I associate the entry with the exit without using SetStopLoss or SetProfitTarget AND allow simultaneous trades that are managed separately inside a strategy.

1. Enter 1 contract based on some criteria without a stop or target.
2. Enter another contract at a later time without a stop or target.
3. Now I have 2 positions open at different entry prices neither of which have a stop or target defined.
4. Exit criteria is encountered for the entry described in paragraph 2. I want to exit that position leaving the paragraph 1 position in play.

So, in other words, I want to manage each trade independently.

I think what I'll need to do is store order information in an array...Can't believe NT doesn't have this ability and maybe it does and I just don't know how to do it.

I can't figure out how to do that...

I know this isn't directly answering your question, but have you seen:



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.
