The AT TradeAssistant has two plots it can draw on the chart:
|SL||The Stoploss price of an active (running) trade|
|SAR||The SAR value to plot above or below the price during an active trade when the trailing stop is set to Parabolic SAR|
- When a submitted trade is executed
- When a trade is closed
- When a trade is submitted by AutoTrade
This page contains only a brief explanation of TradeAssistant’s features.When you buy the TradeAssistant you’ll receive several NinjaTrader templates with setups for different usage of this advanced tool.
