Flatten All ?

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to figure out how to flatten all my open positions. I found this tidbit of information on the NT forum. It's an untested "hack" within NS. However the problem with it is that it turns off the strategy.

NinjaTrader.Gui.SuperDom.SuperDom.FlattenEverything();

I've used it to flatten everything, cancel all orders and to disable the strategy. However, I also want to use it for my Reverse-At-Stop functionality. Unfortunately, my strategy being disabled doesnt help.

I'm not married to the idea of using it for my Stop-At-Reverse code, so does anyone have any hints on how I could do this? Mind you I'm using 'Unmanaged = true'.

Thanks!
phyzfer

I would take the approach of having your strategy manage the orders and not relying on some external flatten command.

If you want to flatten, just have the strategy exit. That way the strategy is still running and can re-enter later.

1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.

thanks Mike,

I am going to rely on my stop orders getting filled, before reversing my positions.
Just curious, how do you exit a strategy and then re-enter it later?
Never needed to do that before.

thanks!

I'm thinking you meant exit a position and re-enter. If you are using wizard only maybe you are not familiar with just the most basic commands of "EnterLong()" and "EnterShort()". Examine the source of some strategies and you'll see.

BM,

No worries. I'm using my own stop orders to handle.
Can't use EnterShort/EnterLong with Unmanaged = true.

thanks!

I admit up front to being sleep deprived.. but what is unmanaged = true? I'm not familiar with that variable, at least I don't think I am.

With "unmanaged = true" you enter unmanaged order entry handling mode and you are not bound by internal NT entry handling rules.

In this mode you manage your orders by using: SubmitOrder(), ChangeOrder(), CancelOrder(), but you can't use any of the Entry/Exit or Set methods

Wow, how did I ever miss this... it is in NT 6.5 or only 7?

That is awesome.

7 only. It's very useful and goes around some of the idiotic NT nuances for order handling.
