How to do Multiple Automated Entries in Ninja?

I have done a bunch of reading and I'm not sure this is possible but I am trying to create an ATM strategy to allow me to automatically"scale into" a position. I am a discretionary trader and I want to initiate a single contract with a predefined stop. As the trade moves in my direction I would like to have stop limit entry orders sitting in front of the market at predefined levels to add to my position. As this occurs I would like to trail the initial stop to break even and take into account the changed average entry price and move the stop to that point.

An example

Buy 1 Contract CL @ 80
Stop 5 ticks @ 79.95

I would like entry buy stop limit orders automatically sitting at (for example) 5 tick steps above entry so

once entry is filled I would like orders at
buy 1 contract stop limit @ 80.05
buy 1 contract stop limit @ 80.10
buy 1 contract stop limit @ 80.15

Once 80.05 order is filled I would like stop to go to BE and move to BE as each step is filled.

This strategy will of course needs to be adjustable for each instrument and number of contracts I want to trade. I can't see how this is possible with an ATM strategy and I'm guessing I will have to code a custom strategy? Hints?

Thanks in advance

I assume by the deafening silence this isn't possible? Doing it manually has been kind to my trading account but automation would be nice.

Answer
This post has been selected as an answer to the original posters question Answer

You have to create a custom strategy, and a very advanced one at that. You can look at Prometheus and NT7 buttons threads for some basic ideas on adding strategy buttons to your chart, then you would need to handle all the orders yourself within the strategy.

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)
