Click Trader for Chart Traders

I trade exclusively with Chart Trader, never with the DOM.

I"m using Click Trader from this vendor...

Tools and indicators for NinjaTrader

I really love it. On click and the order is placed where I click.

Left Shift + Left Click = Place a Long Order
Left Control + Left Click = Place a Short Order
Space = Close Order / Exit Position

This is the only indicator now on my chart (finally) that is not my code. Personally I don't like third party indicators/strategies and don't like to build my business on them, because one day perhaps the vendor will go away and the licensing validation will fail.

So, this indicator is on my list to rewrite into my own code. The only unknown is how to get the price at the click. I believe it may be possible to get the Y coordinate then somehow map that to a price.

If I am the first to rewrite this I will post it in the forum.

Otherwise, any ideas how to convert the click to a Y coordinate, then to a price?

Thx.

You don't have to pay for a 3rd party application for that kind of functionality. I do this with 3 lines of code using AutoHotkey. I believe TMTF also has code to issue orders directly from an indicator, and there are also several indicators with sample code on how to get the price at the chart cursor. So, if you want to implement the functionality yourself in NT, most of the code already exist.

This is the code I use for getting y, I think it's from pepe's ChartHelper:
 
Code
 public double ConvertYtoPrice(int y)
        {
            int _tickLength = 0;

            if (TickSize < 1)
                _tickLength = TickSize.ToString().Length - 2;

            double chartscale = Math.Abs(chartMax - chartMin);
            double boundAreaScale = chartBounds.Bottom - chartBounds.Y;

            double ratio = (double)(chartscale) / boundAreaScale;
            double chartPrice = Math.Round(chartMin + ((chartBounds.Bottom - y) * ratio), _tickLength);

            return (chartPrice);
        }
But I'm not sure I understand the point, since you can just right click on the chart and select your order.

questions

thank you both...

monpere....thank you...what is TMTF?

future trader: thank you for the code, can't wait to try it

as to why:

I often scalp in fast moving markets and a second makes a big difference....to place an order with Chart Trader, one needs to use the buttons, which one cannot select the exact price wanted, or right click on the chart, which opens a dialog, from there you choose.

(I need to choose the exact price I want, not market, bid, or ask.)

sometimes the standard chart trader is too slow or awkward. The clicktrader really helped with this problem. I would not trade without it now.

Next question: Do you know how to get the ATM in the drop down list on chart trader...then I can complete this indicator.

@ThatManFromTexas

Mike

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.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

I wrote something like this, but more complex, for a customer who never paid, so I may release a cleaned version of this (if I have enough time to clean it).
Basically, it was trapping the price on the chart, and if the ctrl/shift/alt key was also pressed, a limit/stop/market order was send (and another bunch of options for an atm like, a bit smarter).

@sam028

I remember those days .... being self employed ..... spending 25% of your time finding projects... 25% of your time completing the project ... and 50% of your time collecting for the project...

I'm just a simple man trading a simple plan.

Couldn't you just right click on the chart and place order from the menu?

I could not find a proper way to get the info from the charttrader. So I used unsupported code to get part of it. (ATM's I did not find out). But the unsupported stuff has some disadvantages...

As you are working on stuff with that indy/strat combo, why not that way?
There you have everything you need. And the mouse click part you can find in some indicators in the downloads section. If you code it to be fast, it will be fast. And it is all with regular code.

But if you find a proper way to get the ATM's, then I would be very interested in that code.

All this stuff is unsupported.

You need to get the ChartTrader controls, and then you can get the name of the currently selected atmstrategy.

string atm = ctrader.Controls["cboStrategy"].Text;
