Strategy Wizard Coding Question

Hello!

Using the NT wizard is there a way to flat all the positions taken before I open the strat whenever the time of the opening, so that it does not continue to trade positions taken before I open the strategy?

Many Thanks,

Nicolas

Not 100% sure this is what you are looking for, but in Control Center, Tools - Options, there is a section for Strategies - NinjaScript:

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


Set it to "Wait until Flat" to make sure that once you add a strategy to a chart, the strategy will not open a new position until it is flat. In other words, if the strategy "should have been" long 5 bars before you added it to the chart, this will prevent it from thinking it is long and thus royally screwing up your account and getting out of sync.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
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.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Cool man! Thanks for this. I was wondering as well what is the function in the wizard to close the strategy when a certain PnL has been reached. I am asking because I noticed that even if you code that it should exit long or short positions when PnL is inferior or superior to a certain value, it continues to place trades and immediately close them afertwards. This will be my last enquiry, promised!

The part I highlighted is in 6.5 and is what I was talking about.

I've never used the wizard, but to my knowledge you can't do that in the wizard. There are plenty of examples of code on how to do this on the forum, you'll need to learn to code C# directly and forget the wizard.

StochVolTrigger in Strategy Wizard

I am trying to backtest the StochVolTrigger using Strategy wizard to create a simple buy/sell orders. Can someone tell me how I can use the NT wizard to automate a buy or sell when this indicator paints a green or red dot on the chart.

No historical trades

Here is what I use in my strategies

protected override void OnBarUpdate()
{
if (Historical)
return;

I enter this first right under OnBarUpdate. in my code. This will not take any historical trades when applying the strategy to the chart.

Hope this helps
