Newbie Needs Help with NinjaTrader

OK, I apologize if I put this in the wrong forum. I also apologize if this info has already been compiled in one location (I could not find it).

Here is what I want to do with Ninja Trader:

1. Plot a chart of daily bars, back adjusted continuous contract, from Kinetick. I can plot the current contract data, but finding the symbol for continuous contract has eluded me. I specifically would like Crude oil from say Jan 1 2008 to present, normal 24 hour electronic session.

2. Insert a strategy (that has already been written) to apply to that strategy.
Edit: OK, this was easy. You have to double click the strategy so that it shows up in the lower box. I as clicking once and then hitting OK.

3. Ensure that $5 RT commissions and $30 RT slippage has been deducted from each trade.
Edit: OK, I got this figured out too.

CASE CLOSED


Then, I think I know how to view the strategy report.

If anyone can point me in the right direction with a couple of steps. Eventually, I'll watch the video tutorials, but for now I just want quick and dirty.

This is a good start. https://futures.io/ninjatrader/12115-continuous-cl-crude-oil-futures-contract-vs-month-contract.html

Sometimes it is easier to get others to help after you have spent time watching the tutorials or searching BigMike.

Sorry. I figured these were basic enough Ninja questions that I did not have to watch video tutorials first, and 30 minutes of searching Big Mike didn't yield the results (maybe I need to watch a tutorial on searching Big Mike ).

But thanks for addressing my first question, although I still think (maybe incorrectly) that Kinetick provides a continuous contract in its database (without need to merge contracts in NT). I saw they had CL# and +CL# in their database. Maybe I'll contact them.

Check this article from Rancho Dinero web site, it's all explained in black and white:

If your provider has a continuous contract, here’s how to use it in NinjaTrader 7.

I think continuous contracts are something you may want to manage yourself. You never know, but I have never found a vendor that did the rollover dates the way I wanted them.

Sorry about assuming you didn't search big mike. That link came up on the first search I made on big mike. I guess I was lucky.

Hope you find something that works for you.

I'm also new to NT strategies, so I want to ask- is it possible to put 2 limit stop orders on both sides at the same time, I mean 1 buy stop and 1 sell stop (if you look for a breakout)?
I tried - but I couldn't.
Or maybe there should be a special strategy that can do it and cancel one order if the other is filled?

Or use unmanaged orders or alternate. Thats what I do, but its not for scalping.
