Best way would be to have a unique name for the second order's contract(s) - "L2", "S2". Also you could have different entry criteria for the new orders. ie, if after entry there is an additional pullback but my stop isn't hit and it creates a new qualified setup, then enter with additional contracts.

If you have any more specific scenarios, let us know.

zeller4, really dumb question, but the long/shorts trades, are they not unique? Why would you want to create unique names for orders.

Thanks

If your settings are to allow only unique entries then obviously you cannot have two similar entry positions.

Example:

You enter long but then you would like to add to winners, but if 1st (initial) enter long has exactly the same name as 2nd (add-to-winners) enter long, NT won't allow to execute 2nd long.

The solution is to give unique identifiers to an Order, like "Long1", "Long2", etc

The syntax is as follows:

EnterLong(int quantity) //when no unique identifier needed
EnterLong(int quantity,string signalName) //with signalName as unique identifier
