OK, I apologize if I put this in the wrong forum. I also apologize if this info has already been compiled in one location (I could not find it).

Here is what I want to do with Ninja Trader:

1. Plot a chart of daily bars, back adjusted continuous contract, from Kinetick. I can plot the current contract data, but finding the symbol for continuous contract has eluded me. I specifically would like Crude oil from say Jan 1 2008 to present, normal 24 hour electronic session.

2. Insert a strategy (that has already been written) to apply to that strategy.
Edit: OK, this was easy. You have to double click the strategy so that it shows up in the lower box. I as clicking once and then hitting OK.

3. Ensure that $5 RT commissions and $30 RT slippage has been deducted from each trade.
Edit: OK, I got this figured out too.

CASE CLOSED


Then, I think I know how to view the strategy report.

If anyone can point me in the right direction with a couple of steps. Eventually, I'll watch the video tutorials, but for now I just want quick and dirty.

This is a good start.

Sometimes it is easier to get others to help after you have spent time watching the tutorials or searching BigMike.

Sorry. I figured these were basic enough Ninja questions that I did not have to watch video tutorials first, and 30 minutes of searching Big Mike didn't yield the results (maybe I need to watch a tutorial on searching Big Mike ).

But thanks for addressing my first question, although I still think (maybe incorrectly) that Kinetick provides a continuous contract in its database (without need to merge contracts in NT). I saw they had CL# and +CL# in their database. Maybe I'll contact them.

Check this article from Rancho Dinero web site, it's all explained in black and white:

If your provider has a continuous contract, here’s how to use it in NinjaTrader 7.

I think continuous contracts are something you may want to manage yourself. You never know, but I have never found a vendor that did the rollover dates the way I wanted them.

Sorry about assuming you didn't search big mike. That link came up on the first search I made on big mike. I guess I was lucky.

Hope you find something that works for you.

I'm also new to NT strategies, so I want to ask- is it possible to put 2 limit stop orders on both sides at the same time, I mean 1 buy stop and 1 sell stop (if you look for a breakout)?
I tried - but I couldn't.
Or maybe there should be a special strategy that can do it and cancel one order if the other is filled?

Or use unmanaged orders or alternate. Thats what I do, but its not for scalping.

By alternate I mean that when you're above the middle you put stop buy and on the next bar you evaluate again. If you're still above the middle you do nothing, but if the price dropped below the middle point, of the range, you cancel your buy and put a sell.
