Oh, I actually figured it out, but never posted in this thread.

I posted a video of the ATM strat working in another thread, but have deleted the video as someone told me I had some personal info in it.

I can make another video demo-ing the strategy, and post the code for it if it would help?

if you can DM me te video or YT link.

I no longer have the vid, its completely deleted from my YT and my PC. I'll have to re-record it when I get a chance.

Basic functionality in the script.

Might be a while before the HD version of the video renders?

Oh... I probably didn't explain well in the video.

But this strategy simple takes a starting price, and enters a grid of orders at that price and below.

Each orders has a fixed stop(I set them all to the same number), and a unique target. As a target is hit, that orders is REPLACED.

It does this until that lower level is hit.

Also.. in just thinking about it.. the example I created is WAY more complex than the basic example needs to be. I had some issues to work out with storing order names into the array... as that is how I created the order grid. I discussed that in THIS thread.

If you only need to do this with one order, or don't need a more complex grid of orders... THIS example may be the best to work with. It is how I built a basic functioning one the first time.

One other quirk I may have forgotten to mention, its been a while since I messed w/it.

But, for the ATM strat to work, I believe you have to have saved a ATM template, and it has to have the same name that I put into the script.

I named it "AtmStrategyTemplate".

So you need to create one using chart trader. Attached is a screenshot of the one I created.

When YOU create yours, you want to use that SAME name(or change it in the script to whatever you want to call it), and put your parameters in there. I used a a 50Tick stop and target, and I put a size of 10K in as I was testing on FX.

The stop/target.. The script will overwrite those values anyway once it places the order.

If you are using some other instrument, adjust your #s accordingly.
