Roughly speaking you need to add the extra instrument series in the Initialise method, then trigger your longs in the OnBarUpdate, e.g.

// in Initialise, assuming you are running the strategy on some other chart series

Add ("YM 06-14", PeriodType.Minute, 1);
Add ("ES 06-14", Periodtype.Minute, 1);

// in OnBarUpdate

if (FirstTickOfBar && BarsInProgress == 1 && Time[0].Hour == 10 && Time[0].Minute == 0) { EnterLong .... }

if (FirstTickOfBar && BarsInProgress == 2 && Time[0].Hour == 11 && Time[0].Minute == 0) { EnterLong .... }
Obviously, lots of other stuff to take care of, just work through the Ninja strategy doc and any detailed examples you can find, hope it helps you get started, you'll probably find lots of full examples on here somewhere.

Travel Well
