I should also add that my method supports limit orders, stop orders (for entry), profit targets and stops (stop loss).

This is a big improvement over the limited functionality built-in to NinjaTrader with C2, as NT only submits market orders as they are filled.

With my function you can submit your profit target and stop loss orders, which are OCO, at the time of entry. You can also specify a limit order or a buy stop ahead of time to prevent slippage, which is a big issue with C2 systems in a volatile market.

Not sure what has changed between 2010 and 2014.

Right now, I have been told that from the C2 Signal Entry API, limit orders would be monitored for 1 second and then if limit not filled (as in pierced through ?) out of their datafeed (which in fact is DTN IQFeed) changed to market orders for signals tracking.
Are all orders out of C2 NinjaTrader integration still forwarded as market orders only ? Or do the pending Ninja limit orders waiting as real limit orders, and changed to market orders for C2 tracking only if touched but not filled after 1 second ?
In other words, is it still worth to build a "bridge" between Ninja and C2 using the web entry API like BigMike did for MultiCharts back in the days, or is it pointless with no additional advantage to attain ?

Using the Signal API, how long does it take for my orders to be updated on C2 for my investors to properly follow ? Few seconds ? how many ?

By the way, an alternate site is popping : c2pro.com
You get 6 months free if agreeing to beta-test it.
