Hello everyone!

Does anyone can help me with NT8 chart trader customization?



As you can see on the attached screenshot, if you execute multiple entries, they all combine into one "Stop" and one "Target" order. As far as I know, we are able to separate these orders as shown on screenshot (increase or decrease price for them), or set up splitted stops and targets via Chart Trader strategy menu prior to submitting the order.
But what I'm interested at, is if there was a way to swipe target price, that you can see on the screenshot, with price of entrance, for each separate order. Honestly I don't see logic of duplicating that information in pop-out menu, if target is known anyway when we place exit order in desirable price level. But it would be very helpful to know entrance price of each separate order, as then I would have better ways to manage them. For example, keep the one, opened sooner, but close the one that was placed by mistake, etc.

Or, if there is no way to customize default CT, maybe you know any third party CT, that could do the job the way I need it?

Thank You, and have a good life traders!

I had Josh Benton, TradeAbove.com, customize Chart Trader for me, along with many other applications. I highly recommend him.

Was it expensive? It's just I've never used anyone like this guy before

If I'm understanding your questions correctly, I think what you're looking for is the "ATM strategy selection mode".

Take a look at this link and watch the video at the top of the page.

Hope this helps.

michael94,
Sorry my response was so short. My eyes had been glued to the screen all day and I could barely keep them open last night.

My main problem with Chart Trader was that if I added positions during a trade, the automated stop loss only protected the initial entry. Totally worthless, in my opinion.
So I asked Josh to increase the stop for each added purchase/sale. I could still scale out, contract by contract, but if price came back to the stop loss point, ALL contracts would be stopped out.

That solved my immediate problem, but I plan to have Josh completely redo Chart Trader. I'm a scalper, so quickness of order entry/exit is critical. I envision having several Buy and Sell buttons. They would be labeled Buy 1, Sell 1, Buy 2, Sell 2, etc. This would enable me to buy or sell one, two, three or more contracts with one click. Sure I could double or triple click, but why bother. When I scale out, I might want to Sell 2 contracts if I'm long, say five. So I'll simply press Sell 2. The other changes I'll have Josh make include trailing stops, as well as the option to automatically scale out, say one contract at 10 ticks, the next at 15 ticks, etc.

I plan to have Josh center the Buy & Sell buttons on my screen. That way, they will be right next to the current bar, which I keep centered. Otherwise, I have to look up to the top right corner of the chart, which is where the Buy/Sell buttons are now. When Josh moves my controls to the center of the right edge, it will leave wasted space above and below. So, I plan to embed small charts or Market Analyzer applications in those empty spaces. Every square inch counts! I have other ideas for my revised Chart Trader, but you get the idea.

With respect to cost, I went through five TradeStation programmers before I switched to NinjaTrader. Their hourly rates ranged from $130 to $160. So I expect you'll be pleasantly surprised by a quote from Josh. You will find Josh to be conscientious and easy to work. He turns around assignments quickly (read my recommendation on his website where I discuss the RangePro application he coded for me). Finally, I believe Josh can be trusted with your proprietary ideas. I never felt the need to ask him to sign an NDA.

Ill be happy to answer any other questions you might have.

Best of luck michael94 (Good name!)

Mike

Michael94.
Could this be what you are looking for?
Search out "GoFishPro" on : cycletraderpro (dot) com
There is a video which shows its capabilities and apparently you can test drive it for free, for 14 days or so.
(no financial interest in this vendor)
