ATM Strategy for Ninjatrader

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.

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

best way to learn more about how ATMs work is :

use our search upper right corner > search for "ATM" - you will find lots of threads with good examples about it !

2 very good threads you find will be these :

https://futures.io/platforms-indicators/4993-ninjatrader-advanced-trade-management-ninja-trader-example-videos.html

https://futures.io/traders-hideout/2631-how-would-i-set-up-my-ninjatrader-advanced-trade-management-nice-example.html

but also the others will help to understand more how ATMs work .
