Just a quick one about Ninja trader. I have a problem with getting my stop orders to fill. Im trading crude after 6 points my my stop would need to jump to 5 points. But it send error and i have to do it manually. My computer is only 6 months old. My ping is between 55-70 usually about 65. my connection speed is 7.19Mbps so not sure why it doesn't want to fill? Can some suggest a answer for my dilemma.
Hi, im trading the USA morning session 8 - 11am. Its on my ATM strategy i put on stop brake even to 6 and 5 . My stop loss is at 10 but want my stop to move to 5 after 6 points is reached. Im trading 2 contracts. Sometimes it takes out one but the other one i need to close my self. Im not sure what the message say. Im usually busy closing my trade so dont get time to read it.. Only started two days ago with this so not lots of experience with it yet.
The order rejection would be coming from the exchange thus likely the price of the order is invalid at the time the order change is submitted. My support team would be happy to review your logs/trace files to get clarity on the order rejection message. You can start NinjaTrader, select Help > Mail To Support, include in subject for "RayD" and reference this post. Let me know what time this occured at and on what day.
I personally reviewed your logs/trace files and see numerous rejection messages for both live and simulation accounts such as:
27/04/2011 15:14:51|0|32|AMP, Buy stop or buy stop limit orders can't be placed below the market. affected Order: Buy 1 StopLimit @ 111.31 x 111.51
Native error='Sell order stop price must be below last trade price'
I see this for entry orders and stop loss orders. Basically, this means that the orders that are submitted are at invalid prices. Double check that your ATM strategie stop loss values are wide enough that if the market moves quickly to where your stop loss would be, it would not reject your orders. For entry, orders, make sure that when submitting a sell stop, that stop price is below the last traded price.
