ChartTrader is technically not allowed/supported by NT when used with a strategy (in fact when you run a strategy, ChartTrader is not available from the Control Center). In an ATM/ChartTrader you (or the ATM) enters the order, but a strategy enters it automatically ... in it's own namespace, etc. So how can a strategy possibly see an order entered outside of the strategy ?
But you can do it with the ChartControl functions. Note, you won't find any official documentation on them, but if you search for ChartControl on the futures.io (formerly BMT) forums and also the NT support forums you should find enough to run an ATM with a strategy.

I would ask in that thread since it duplicates most of the controls available when it creates the new panel window.
