Ninja ATM via code (Automated trade management)

Hi All,

I was wondering if any code can be executed due to an event of clicking on the DOM (buy/sell ladder) without having Ninja's LIVE version (the one you pay for in order to get the ATM strategies)?

Basically does NT allow a developer to execute a code for example if a a click to buy order was done on the DOM and I would like to have 4 stop losses at two different depths /levels on the DOM and 4 targets (I dont need trailing - but may need OCO -order cancels order)

I'm assuming this cannot be done on the DOM it self - but ONLY on the CHART trading options?

Thanks in advance,

I could think of some legit situations you might want to attempt this, such as NT doesn't support what you are trying to do, such as options trading. I'd think you'd need to have a broker that published an API that you could code against. You have to interface directly with the broker, as all the order functionality in NT is disabled if you don't have the live version. My broker has such an API, but the rub is that NT would consume the account login session, so a second account would be needed for order routing purposes, which costs more. It'd be a lot of work, ie. not a matter of just downloading something from this forum, but I think it is probably possible if you want to take on a coding project.
