  2. Hi friends, At times I see this ACB route and as it has the biggest lots of shares I wonder if it is just a false bid to influence traders directional bias. I can't find any info online search for ACB. Thoughts? Thanks BBTFam
  3. Fortunately I created my short partials with BE stop from earlier ones I created for just partials rather than forum posts. However I did find the erroneous ones in my reference library of hotkeys taken from the forum so I've fixed those. This is something I fear with lots of hotkeys as I have around 90 with 50 related to trades. I keep all mine under version control and try to review/test every change before bulk importing them all into DAS using a custom importer to avoid copy/paste issues, but even with all that effort I've still had one mistake that nearly impacted live trading. Hopefully a moderator can fix up those other forum posts.
  4. TLDR; please let me know if your partial hotkeys flip your positions or not. so i have been struggling with positions being opened (flipped) after i thought i would be stopped at break even for some time already. Months at least. so i searched on these forums and found this hotkey for partial i am using for years now for shorts Shift+4:COVER 50%:~ 163:CXL ALLSYMB;ROUTE=SMRTL;Price=ASK+0.05;Price=Round2;Share=Pos*0.5;TIF=DAY+;BUY=Send;ROUTE=STOP;StopType=Market;StopPrice=AvgCost;Share=Pos+share;TIF=DAY+;BUY=SEND for longs Alt+Shift+4:SELL 50%:~ 162:CXL ALLSYMB;ROUTE=SMRTL;Price=BID-0.05;Price=Round2;Share=Pos*.50;TIF=DAY;SELL=Send;ROUTE=STOP;StopType=Market;StopPrice=AvgCost;Share=Pos-share;TIF=DAY;SELL=SEND so if you search for the problematic part of the hotkey you get 30 results which i believe is wrong. let me explain CXL ALLSYMB;ROUTE=SMRTL;Price=ASK+0.05;Price=Round2;Share=Pos*0.5;TIF=DAY+;BUY=Send;ROUTE=STOP;StopType=Market;StopPrice=AvgCost;Share=Pos+share;TIF=DAY+;BUY=SEND real world example from DAS yesterday. i had 241 shares short on MARA 10:25:08,DASDebugLog,Sending new order from montage:BUY MARA 120 SMRT Limit 23.19 10:25:08,DASDebugLog,Sending new order from montage:BUY MARA 361 SMAT STOP Mkt 23.63 so lets do the counting Share=Pos*0.5 means 241*0.5 which is the first order which went through BUY MARA 120 SMRT Limit 23.19 because 241*0.5=120 (rounded) now the setting stop loss to break even part Share=Pos+share meaning 241+120 which is shown on the second order correctly as BUY MARA 361 instead of the desired BUY MARA 121 If we used Share=Pos-share for shorts it would be 241-120 whcih would result in the desired number of shares of 121 but it is explicitly stated so many times in the forums that it shall be Pos-share for covering shorts and Pos+share for selling Long positions Obviously DAS sends the 2 orders at the same time when the Pos variable is still the full position size. @KyleK29 @Justin so the problem seems to be the wrong expectations that the Pos-Share has to be changed for Pos+Share for the Covers but that is not correct because the Share=Pos-share is same both for longs and shorts because from my example i want to be the new stop in the size of 121 in both cases so i need to use the same Pos-share formula. and it is 15 times posted on the forums wrongly even by myself over the years Now tell me who has got the cover hotkey wrong?
  5. Awesome job Noob looking forward to following the sample set and checking out the results. I'm going to review some of my trades and see how the 30 minute range could of better help indicate trade direction.

  7. Thank you for the welcome Abiel! I look forward to learning, sharing, and collaborating with BBT members. - Adam
  8. Hi Adam, welcome to BBT! I´m sure here you will find different styles and approaches to get your own trading style.
  9. Addendum. I have been getting better with my trades. The thing I am working on is timing the entry, and accept the missed opp, and not give into fomo. I missed a trade on $aapl yesterday, and did what i thought, but didn't stop out, due to not entering a pos. too early. I am working on defining a target price for entry, but realize that once a price gets to that level, it may oscillate around that price point. Understanding the diff behaviors of diff stocks on a diff day, and try to not enter immediately, and then wait to see if the price moves. If the price is moving on a trend, just the right amount of momentum or lack of, can help define a better timing to an entry. However, if it is a bounce or reversal, there is usually a period of deceleration of the price, as it defines a new price structure, before it decides to move up further in continuation or reverse. This is what I am adding to my current trade. I define the level of a price entry, base don the big bids and ask in the L2. Once a price is defined, I will then use the 2/5 min candle ATR to help determine the high and low of that range. If I am looking to go long, I will try to enter on the 2nd-4th time the price hits that low end. Example. If the entry is defined at $100, and the price sells off at the open, and there is a big bid @$100, I will to enter, once the price has absorbed the entire lot @$100, and then wait for it to establish the new range. Based on the nearby levels, Moving average, pre-mkt, and daily, I will use it to help define further sell off, or if it finds a equilibrium. Based on the ATR of 2/5 min candle, i will use that to find the high and low range. Ex. $appl may have 50 Cent ATR on the 2/5 min candle. I can use that and go either 50 above or 50 low, or half of that, 25 cents above/below. That may also be dependent on other technical levels mentioned above. Once it hits, for example in the range of $99.5, - $99.75, that would be lower range to buy for a long position. The ideal stop would be a major technical level below, pivot point, moving average, daily/pre-mkt levels, and big bids setting below that level. ** Here is a specific on my target exit. My final exits will always be based on the next level of big liquidity, and help correlate and confirm based on the technical levels defined previously. This will help me with a greater degree of confidence that the price may move based on the 'auction theory." See Thor's and Jarad's webinars on that subject. Here and now on, I will start posting the results of my daily trades. All good and bad. *Special shout out to Crede's Money Mentality. It was groundbreaking for me. Highly recommended it for the meta portion of your psyche in day trading.
  10. Thanks Robert! Ross is a wizard at Long Small Cap/ Small Floats for sure! There are very few that can trade exactly as he does. I look forward to the BBT training. I have already binged all of Thor's VPA and Market Auction Theory! (Mind blown!) This will definitely give me new tools to add to my trading tool belt. Appreciate the welcome!
  11. Welcome to the BBT Family. I too tried to trade with Ross. I tried for 3 years before I finally realized I could not trade that style and I found the BBT family. It has still taken me over a year to feel like I now know what works and doesn't alone with working on the phycology side. You will love it here because there are plenty of styles and approaches to trading and you can incorporate that into your own style. Good luck.
  12. Hello BBT! Name’s Adam (AdamzTradez)! I joined BBT on Monday Jan 24th, 2022. I have a 9-5 as a Microsoft DevOps Developer in the Houston Texas area (Work from home). I have been a Microsoft Developer (Microsoft Stack) for 20+ years. My Trading Journey: I am coming from Warrior Trading where I spent a 1 full year with Ross learning about Momentum Trading small cap (small float) stocks with a long bias. I really enjoyed learning from Ross and his team, however, I found that I am not as quick at executing my trades as Ross. I also felt that I wanted to learn more about trading mid/large caps, specifically how to short. As a warrior trader, I was taught that 10 cents a day keeps the W2 away! I was able to squeeze 10cents out of most if not all of my winning trades. However, I found I was giving back 30 cents on my losers as they would flush right past my “Mental” stops and I would fall back to my then horrible strategy of HAHahahaha (Hold and Hope) it would bounce or pivot back to let me stop out break even, only to watch continue on it’s journey back down to VWAP, 9EMA, LOD, Center of the Earth, you get the point. What I began to notice is the Short Sellers would have a field day shorting against Ross and make a killing in their PNL. Buying Pivots or Reversal became a very logical way to trade tickers, however, I was only taught how to go long. ( Ross is Long biased as he trades primarily in an IRA account ) I gave myself one full year to complete my training with Warrior, but began looking for a new community that could train me in reversal and pivots. I began to watch Thor’s Youtube recaps and could clearly see, “wow! This guy gets it!” As soon as my Warrior Membership expired, I bought into BBT. I look forward to learning from Thor and all at BBT. Specifically, I am looking for coaching/mentorship on improving my entries and holding my winners longer. Improving my Risk Management from 3:1 to 1:3 minimum. I have live trading stats on TraderVue from Sept 2021. I’ll attach a screenshot if possible. I currently trade on DAS with TD Ameritrade. Anyone willing to take on a new student or refer me to a group, to assist in pinpoint entries, learning pivots, reversals, trends, L2, T/S. etc…? Any feedback is welcome! Cheers! - AdamzTradez (if you are unable to see attachment, I have uploaded image to imgur: Here )

  15. Thanks Rob for your answer. I just really don't want to learn a new platform and set up a new account. I was hoping i can do it all with DAS. It does appear to be clunky for futures tho... ugh
  16. i only use TWS sorry I cannot help you with that, but as it seems, everybody in the chatroom was having major problems today even though that not happens often at all...
  17. Thanks. Do you know if this happens often with DAS?
  18. @johnjnc as Andrew commented during the opening, try to setup a TWS backup for your positions just in case you have troubles one day like this. So that you can fall-back to another system if your DAS is giving you a headache
  19. Hey, I just joined this forum. Have been learning trading bits for the last year and finally started paper trading in December. Mostly I'm just learning the platform, and starting January I set out to triple a 3000$ account - gonna attempt this 3 times until I actually start trading with real money. Looking forward to learning from all of you and eventually trading real money. Personal info... Shane is my name. I'm 31 and live in Okanagan valley in BC, Canada. Thanks! Hopefully you'll see me in the chat.
  20. I guess it's a "know issue" for today... The main chat room was talking about it too, I should have checked there first.
  21. Anyone else noticing DAS lagging today? I was using the simulator, but another guy at our group was trading live through COBRA. Super laggy today... I hadn't ever noticed it before. thanks, John
  22. Hi, Just saw this was unanswered when I was looking for another post about Camarilla. If you are still looking for the solution, it's because of pre and post market data. The stock closed at 19.25 and the high was 19.50 in the post market which is why DAS is calculating that as a level (your formula is correct). Martin
  23. Hello, I am a TOS user and looking for all TOS and TD related post. It's really helpful. Thanks.
