I just completed the NodeTrader Auto Trader (ATM version) and am testing it out. I’m not sure how much functionality I will add to this atm version of the auto trader. I am working on the un-managed version which I will be using in my own trading. The atm version cannot be used for back testing – mostly only for entry and order management. Also since the strategy implements a single atm, the position sizing algorithms are fixed. In other words, if the strategy says you can enter with 5 contracts but the atm tied to the strategy is built with 3 contracts – you will enter the market and manage 3 contracts. None of this is an issue with the fill fledged un-managed version. I expect to have the un-managed version ready in the next couple of weeks.
Stay tuned for the NinjaTrader webinar on December 4th!
