Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Working fine and has been for ages here, with no changes, nor unsuccessfull connects. I connect via Amp's CQG infrastructure.

Any chance something software-wise has been introduced to your machine? Anti-virus programs can easily be culprits too, and turning them off (vs. uninstalling) doesn't always work.

If you have access to a 2nd PC, you can freely download NT via NT's site onto that machine and install, using the same license key - this would help you isolate if it is a issue with that specific PC.

I confirm. no issues..

The specific issue that I had:

In a trade, I have an OCO bracket and I am close to one of the exits - target or stop, doesn't matter.

I am close to my stop or target and I close the trade - either I think my stops going to get hit anyway or I think we may reverse and I take profit early.

What appears to happen is I close the trade and this somehow manages to actually reverse the trade. It doesn't happen all the time and I can't reproduce it any time. I can't be 100% sure what exactly is happening. All I know is that I think I am out but I am really still in - this time in the opposite direction with no OCO.

hi Peter, what you described above seems to be CQG's default behaviour when you have bracket orders enabled.

Say you enable a bracket OCO with a 5-tick stop and a 10-tick target. In CQG you then enable bracket orders, meaning the next market or limit order you place will be a bracket OCO one.

When the order is filled, the 5-tick stop and 10-tick target orders are automatically put in place. So far, so good.

What happens in CQG is, unless you now switch from "bracket order mode" to, let's call it "normal order" mode, if you close the trade manually(say at market), you are actually triggering a second bracket order, in the opposite direction of the prior one. You will have no positions on but you will have a stop and a limit on the opposite side that will be triggered if market reaches either of them.

What I do is trigger the first bracket order and then switch to normal mode if I want to close it manually.

Does it look like the scenario above might be what was happening?

(Note, I use CQG only, I do not use NinjaTrader)
