Hi guys, I'm using Ninjatrader with Continuum data feed, what I've noticed is sometimes when I move my entry on stop too close to current price, the exchange reject the change ( price is higher than the stop entry in case going long ), but after the change was rejected, the chart is not showing this, current high of bar is still below, and just a second after there is a jump in the price. So there is a delay.
Any advise to lower this delay?
Could it be connected to the voice notification advising the action?
Has anybody experience this before?
Hi NJAMC, I trade from the chart, with a simple ATM that will trigger an stop loss, and a profit target. Trade from the chart, if going short, place a sell on stop first, then adjust the entry by click and move the order, all done within the chart.
I haven't set up anything like you have described, but I can tell you that moving Stops around is likely to get rejected in a fast moving market. There are sometime fast movements on the L2 data you can't see and certainly can't avoid, so you could be playing the stop above the current ask, briefly and not knowing it since it is only there for a few milliseconds.
I don't think you have a delay problem that you can fix unless you move closer to the exchange, it is likely something you need to live with if it is a delay. Generally, I use Unmanaged orders under a strategy to catch these errors and re-adjust my entry/exit. You are better off if you are getting that close with a stop to EXIT rather than let the stop get hit and loose more in slippage. Just my thought, not sure what is capable with the ATMs...
