Can Ninja Trader Close Itself?

Hi everyone,
I'm a new trader. Now I found my emotion can easily out of control when I lose more money than I can bear, so I want to ask can I set a lose upper limit for ninja trader? if I lose more than the limit, then ninja trader can close itself?

It can not be done out of the box. An experienced NT coder could solve the task, though not easily.
IMHO you should not trade real money if you are not able to respect your stops or daily loss limit. Prepare yourself mentally BEFORE pulling the trigger.

I believe some brokers can do that for you, where you set a daily loss limit with them, and their system will no longer accept orders from you for the day, once you've reached that loss limit. I think I remember the rep from DeepDiscountTrading mentioning that they had this feature.

Of course I try to control my emotion, but I just want to have an insurance when I out of control, If it difficult just realize by ninja trader, can other tools can use ninja trader's P&L to realize it? for example, write a auxiliary program or tools can monitoring ninjatrader's P&L, when it lose more than a limit, then close it for a given time, or let ninja trader cannot place order.

Bracket Trader can close itself after a set amount of loss for the day.

Yes, Deep Discount offers this. I was told it was something to do with the TT feed, so maybe other brokers can do it too.

With all due respect, I think you should learn how to stop trading when you need, instead of relying on a piece of software to do it for you.

Create a proper thread in the vendor review section please

Sent from my LG Optimus G Pro

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.
