I've been playing around with that exact strategy, but it's set up for a long entry only. I was able to figure out how to set up the short entry, but not both within the same strategy. As a separate strategy. The parameters to enter in that template are simply close(0)>close(1) if I;m understanding the logic correctly. I'm not ninja script proficient; just starting out so struggling to get my conditions in lieu (close(0) >close(1) portion.

You can have long and short orders at the same time. Simply use two AtmStrategyCreate commands, give them two different names and make one a long entry and the other a short entry. You cannot directly make the orders OCO but you can have your strategy cancel one order when the other order is filled.

You can download an example strategy here: OCO bracket stop orders with different ATM strategies - NinjaTrader Support Forum
