Howdy,

My experience using NT to actually trade through is limited, and as is doing things w/order management.

I am interested in creating a tool, that will allow me to place orders on the chart.

More specifically... Imagine wanting to set up 5 orders below price, and varying size, by dragging some draw object on the chart.

If price hits an order, that order should have associated w/it stop/targets. If that trade for example moves to target... there should be an ability to replace that order, and take the trade again...

Point is, the thing should run until disabled.

This is probably not the best explanation, but HERE is an IB tool that seems to do what I really want to do... and may offer a better explanation than I am giving now.

Also, not sure what I want to do yet, but attaching an image, to maybe help visualize what I am thinking.

But, I'm wondering if anyone may have an ideas of tools they've seen that may be similar? I'm sure I can begin to cobble some things together to begin building the functionality, but any known resources/examples would be helpful.

Just a note, I'm sure it would be easy to create a strategy that does this, with user inputs for position sizes, price entries, etc, but I'd like to figure out how to do this with some form of ATM.

Howdy good sir, long time no talk to.

Was checking it out, seems to be a cool platform. It might be a bit too rich for my blood though. I'm still a piker over here.

See you are still trapped in Chicago

Building in TN.

I moved to South Dakota in Oct of 2020. But Sioux Falls is not the place I want to stay in.

I have heard good things about TN. At some point, I will take some time to look around to find a place to settle. TN will be one of those places.

I am also interetsed in learning myself just same reason as user inputs in a running startegy are not always exact and unless using a basic order entry window can trip up the startegy logic.

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?
