Could someone help me out with setting up a strategy in the Ninjatrader's ATM strategy on the DOM. Here is the strategy:

3 contracts.....Profit target for the first 2 contracts at 5 ticks with stop loss at 5 ticks.
The 3rd contract is a runner with auto trail. Once it reaches 7 ticks the stop loss moves to breakeven+1. Then if price reaches 10 ticks in profit, stop loss is 5 ticks. This continues until stop is hit. So, always a 5 tick stop loss after 10 ticks of profit on the runner.

I would really appreciate if someone would help me get this setup. I have gone through Ninja videos, but was not much of a help.

Thanks in advance.
-Keep

hi,
at first you have to chooose an initial stop + a target for the runners-contract -
ie SL 10 / target 80

then you have to define a stop strategy as your trailing.

i find its not done very logicaly this ninja-ATM-stop-strategy-window -- it took me also some time geting it when begining with ninjatrader.

have a look here - it should work like this.

and of course give both a name via rightklick > "manage ..... template" + save them.

Hi max-td and All,

After reading posts #2 and #3, I was trying to write an ATM Strategy based on the two demo images. However, NT gave an error message. Could you kindly help?

hi fusion,
you have to choose an initial StopLoss for the 2. contract.
0 as stopLoss doesnt work
