Automatically post trades to trade journal

I want my Ninja strategy to automatically post it's orders to my trade journal. Is there a way to do this? I think I need the futures.io (formerly BMT) API but I don't know anything else about setting it up.

Just install ChartMinder:

Chart Minder


@ratfink
This looks like what I want! And according to your post here I can simply add ChartMinder indicator to same chart as my strategy and configure as you say there. No coding changes needed. I wasn't expecting that!... I thought I'd have to add something to my ninja script. Very clever. I haven't looked at the code yet but I guess you're dynamically discovering the strategy through some ninja object. ChartControl maybe.
My strategy enters limit orders and sometimes cancels them.
QUESTION: Will those get posted or only filled orders? I'd like just the filled orders to be posted.
I'll dig into this slowly. I don't even have my own journal here on futures.io (formerly BMT)
Nice work!

Only filled orders get posted, but you can choose to enable local saving of order changes, by default that's disabled as well.

Thanks for the comments,

Please post follow-ups to the existing thread linked above.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
