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.
