Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Do you trade any NS strategies, so the order could be a left over from non properly synch scenario to the execution acc?

Emergency Procedures

I also have some thougts about automated trading with a blackbox like ninja. If you can read your open trades within an indicator or strategy i would do this. Keep your "Emergency Procedure" code seperated from your other code (best: new indicator). The "Emergency Procedure" code looks if there are trade distributions that are not normal (for your system) - like only ONE filled order without a stop loss order OR trade size is higher then expected and so on. if you found a ""Emergency Case" do 1. LET A BELL RING to got you out of the bed OR run "Flatten all" in a recursive manner (to be really sure) until no trades aren't pending or active.

The trigger should not only be in the OnBarUpdate section but rather should be called in a timed interval event trigger too. I don't know if it is possible to let a second system (own PC with Ninja) look into the same account at the same time. I have 2 Zenfire Login's but i don't have tested this before. I've seen a thread which are get the trades direct from ninja DB - this is another try.

I would never let an automated system running without any "Emergency Procedure" like an own tracking system or a FCM based max. daily drawdown or similar.
