Stop Close Only Ninjatrader

Hi guys, I'd like to implement stop close only order in ninjatrader and was wondering if anyone has done this already and would care to share a few bits of code/info. I'm new to ninjatrader and the only sensible way I could think of is to implement a variable which tracks the stop and in OnBarUpdate() if the close falls below (for long positions) and above (for short positions) exit the position immediately. I know there is probably a better way of doing this with perhaps simulated stops. Does anyone have any experience with this?

Please help !

Thanks in advance.

Seems to me if you have CalculateOnBarClose = true, such as in Initialize(), then you can simply just refer to the prior close to meet your criteria. Take a look at some of the sample strategies, but I'm thinking something like below should work, obviously do some paper trades before trying anything live.

#region Variables
private IOrder entryOrder = null; // variable used to track order status
private IOrder exitOrder = null; // variable used to track order status
private double PainLevel = 10*TickSize;

In OnBarUpdate()

if (your_entrycondition) {
 entryOrder = EnterLong();

if (entryOrder.OrderState == OrderState.Filled && CrossBelow(close[1], entryOrder.AvgFillPrice - PainLevel,1))
  exitOrder = ExitLong();

Thanks deefster. It makes sense now. I incorporated your suggestions into Ninjatrader's SampleOnOrderUpdate strategy so as to create a strategy which initially uses a stop close only order.

I've attached it so you or others can use/modify at their leisure. You are welcome to give any suggestions for improvement as you see fit.
