Ok...I have my first trade for this journal..Short 132025...I don't expect this afternoon to be too productive, however there is a chance somebody could shoot Ghaadafi and that will set the cat amongst pigeons.

As for charts...I will think about that.

As I write we have a reverse ...now long 132075...target always +/- 10 points

It maybe that i may refrain from posting the trades until the EOD...otherwise could be using up a pile of pages and I have to stay focused ...

I'm not quite following this...

S 2650
L 2750
S 2675

Does this mean you go long at 1327.50, short at 1326.75 and short at 1326.50 ?

Reverse did not happen..missed by a fraction...

Series 2 x10=20 -7 =13 points net profit less comms...series 1 was (5 1/2) and series 2 (1 1/2)...

Would love to have this automated,but Ninja not supported by my broker...so I just might change now..

why automate it with NT7, when you can for the same $$$ automate it with MC, and now with MC having chart trader and DOM on MC7 ... one does not have to do much of anything with NT7 unless one really wants to...

MC supports OEC without issues.. it supports Market/Limit/Stop orders natively, and OCO's programatically within MC...

so you can stay with OEC if they are reliable to you, and just pick MultiCharts... my 2 cents... and as a disclaimer, I own both NT7 and MC... and I find MC to be easier for simple coding and NT7 for very, very complex strategies... but keep in mind that C# is not all that fast, but it appears as your strat does not require speed of execution and analysis..
