Hi,

I found how to make enable chart trade while running a strategy on the chart. I put this code in the OnBarUpdate method:
 
Code
        ChartControl.ChartTraderEnabled = true;
	ChartControl.Controls["pnlChartTrader"].Enabled = true;
	ChartControl.Controls["pnlChartTrader"].Visible = true;	
	ChartControl.Controls["pnlChartTrader"].Controls["ctrChartTraderControl"].Enabled = true;
	ChartControl.Controls["pnlChartTrader"].Controls["ctrChartTraderControl"].Visible = true;
This code opens the chart trader panel and allows you to place orders and shows the current pnl. However it does not enable to context menu order placement options or the on-chart order and avg price markers. Any idea how that can be enabled as well?

Thanks,
Tim

I was reading about the ATI / OIF method yesterday. Has anyone tried working with that? It looks like you could bypass the Strategy class altogether and just do everything from an indicator....

Surely that's overkill when you don't need to communicate with a third-party application?

Well, all of these are workarounds. Using the OIF would eliminate the need to run both the indicator and a strategy, so in a sense it could be simpler.

Technically it would work but its analagous to walking out the front door and back in through the back door of your house. It's not as efficient. The ATI's purpose is to provide an interface for automated trading from a 3rd party application such as TradeStation or eSignal and execute through NinjaTrader.

OIF requires additional I/O to disk. That is always more expensive.

@NinjaTrader

I understand that and agree with you.

The problem is documentation. It is available for the ATI.

I was able to build a system to initiate orders, interface with the Chart Trader and invoke the ATM for stop and target management without using the ATI, but I had a very difficult time finding reference information or documentation.

If this type of information is available, I would be most greatfull if you could provide a link.

Below is the interface I use. It works great for my needs, but the necessary information to accomplish it was difficult to find.

I can understand how making it easier for users to do this could create a headache for support , but providing documentation or a development kit could help reduce that issue, IMHO.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Agreed,

I think NT has a lot of power which is due to the "Openness" of the platform, but information is limited outside of the "NT authorized" additions (Indicators and Strategies). So we end up with people reverse engineering other portions of the system like Chart Types, etc. I think these enhancements end up causing more pain to NT support because they are unstable and rely upon certain observations. If NT can release some of these documents as "UNSUPPORTED", I think that would help.

I read through the thread but I don't understand what your indicator does. (The mind is the first thing to go when you get old... )

@ThatManFromTexas,

I am not sure if you have seen this indicator mentioned before (attached) and is in download section. Seems to work fine without being piggybacked to a strategy. The problem is the buttons and MM are not intuitive and some cleanup will make it a good indicator.

@aligator

Thank you for your efforts!

Yes I have, but I don't need it. I have a complete system that I have been using live for some time. But getting the information when I was building it was very difficult. I was asking NT to provide documentation to make it easier for the next project.
