NinjaTrader is truly an amazing platform! When I started exploring ATM strategies they looked very mysterious to me because because no other platform has anything like this. The ATM strategy allows you to:
a) build half automated set ups really quickly
b) increase your trading systematization and stick to the rules
c) automate set ups without the need to code
d) combine strategy code for calculations and triggering entries
In this course I explore ATMs in two parts. The first part is fully dedicated to initializaing ATM from strategy code. The bonus here is that in this section I also show how to use the UI in NinjaTrader, create your own buttons and subscribe to keyboard or mouse click events. We create an interesting system together where an entry is triggred by crossing over a drawing object, in our case a line. Once an entry is triggered an ATM is fired up and you are free to take over the position management with your manual techniques.
In the second part of the course we explore the ATM functionallity which is quite widely presented by NinjaTrader. We look into AutoTrail and AutoBreakEven set ups, explore Stop Strategies and Simulated Orders, check out what Chase is and go through all the settings the ATM has.
After this course, even if you skip the coding part you should be able to build your own ATM strategies quite quickly. If you also explore the coding part you will understand how to start your ATM from your strategy code and control its stop and profit orders.
I was personally very positevely surprised with the functionallity that ATM brings and I really hope you will find this course usefull in your won trading. Good luck, thank you for reading and feel free to enroll and ask any questions in the forum!
