Ninja Trader auto-execution

I am looking for a simple execution algo in Ninja Trader that when manually activated will follow a buy stop "X" number of ticks from the low of the day as of the beginning of the session (so in the case of the ES 6:00pm est). Once filled it must then put a stop loss order in at "Y" ticks below the entry. No trailing stops. No limit orders for profit - this will be done manually. I want the buy stop to be adjustable ("X" = the number of ticks) so that I can use it in any market. If a trade is stopped out the algo must automatically reset to potentially re-enter the market on the next opportunity. When entering selling short I want just the opposite of buying. Follow the high of day with a trailing stop "X" ticks below the high. Stop loss at "Y" ticks above the entry. I would like to apply buying and selling entry separately not together.

I would think something like this already exists in the NT universe.

Also, would like to have an alert that resets automatically for new high/new low of day.

Again, simple stuff that I would think should already be out there.
