Order Execution Inquiry

Hi Everyone.

Below is the example of the order I'm attempting to place.

If XYZ is currently trading at $20, I place an order to go long 100 shares at $21 via a buy stop limit order. Should prices never reach that high on the day the order is placed, I'd like a contingency that cancels the order if prices trade below $19 during that same day. I've been told that the cancellation order would require an API to be written by either myself, a programmer, or via software. Is this information true? Does a simple cancellation order require any one of these additional steps? Thanks.

You can set order types to GTC or DAY, meaning good till cancelled or good only until end of session.

OCO orders (one cancels other, or order cancels order) won't work here because if you set an OCO for a buy stop $21 and sell stop $19 for example, then if either is hit you will actually get filled.

What you want is to only be filled if $21 hits, but to cancel if it moves below $19.

There is no exchange side order mechanism that does this.

Simply use NinjaTrader and write some simple NinjaScript for your strategy, and it will do it just fine.


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.
