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...
