I am happy to read NT8 will support MB Trading OCO. Hooray!

There is another issue with order execution feedback being out of sequence with NT's expectation, causing desynchronizing of strategies quantity with real account quantity, has this been fixed?

Attachment 165904

Unfortunately this limitation will still exist.

Programatically, when creating a drawing object such as a line, there is no way to make this object global. That is, it only appears on the chart that the indicator is added to. The documentation refers to prepending an '@' to the tag in order to reference global draw objects that were added manually to a chart. Will NT8 allow indicator creators to make drawing objects global programatically?

Thanks,
-C

NT8 drawing objects hold a property "AttachedTo" which allows you to set a value indicating its a Global object.

It's possible I may be misunderstanding you but why not select (highlight) the data series you want to change, then select the new instrument from the instrument drop down in the tool bar? Doing it this way you don't have to remove, add and then attach indicators to them again.

Currently we have simulated stop orders... We need simulated limit orders for profit targets on the ATM/SuperDOM

How would that work? Don't you want your limit orders to fill as fast as possible thus residing in the order queue at the exchange?

No. The purpose of simulated orders are to keep your orders on your computer. Think of it as poker. You show your hand only when you need to. If you have a limit or stop order showing up in the exchange. Everyone can see it. Therefore, it can be targeted by frontrunners (limit orders) or pump & dumpers (stop orders). If it is a simulated limit order. It can turn into a market order once it hits your price. You show your hand only when you need to.

NT8 will come with support for MIT orders which for most of our brokerage technology providers (if not all) are simulated orders held locally that once triggered will issue a market order. Keep in mind, you will see slippage since your are executing at market.
