I have found that using a rigid multiplier will not cut it.  My signals
are generated from $NDX and orders are generated for QQQ.   I
dynamically calculate this factor for my limit or stop price.  That is
something like this:

MyBPValue = 1/(close/(close of data2))

where close is NDX and close of data2 is QQQ.
