    • Update on StreamDeck, Keyboard and Chart Trading Functionalities:   TradeStation will tie in with StreamDeck. I don't use it (yet) bc TS also offers 2 simpler tools "Chart Trading" and "Keyboard Trading" that replace a lot of the hot key and chart trading functionalities people here at BBT like to use with the StreamDeck. So between those two tools I cover all my needs. A screenshot of the "Macro" and "Hotkey" feature below shows how you can program commands and then you do the same as in DAS when using the StreamDeck....simply assign the hotkey in the StreamDeck s/w.     To better understand what "Chart Trading" and "Keyboard Trading" functionalities offer in TradeStation watch this Video:     If you have questions best DM me on Fintwit.... https://twitter.com/MarekLiyanage  
    • I think your strategy makes perfect sense from a technical/number crunching perspective. However, I think most traders that have been doing this for a while would agree with me when I say that trading is much more about psychology than analytics. If you traded this way live and you took a trade with heavy size that goes your way, there is going to be a very strong impulse to hold (because of the fear/greed of missing out on large profit) . If it goes against you, there is also going to be a very strong impulse to hold (because of the fear of realizing a heavy loss). I think a strategy like this may work for a computer trading algorithm, but the psychology required for this is well beyond a beginner / intermediate live trader.  So to put it bluntly, I think this approach is an excellent way to blow up an account. 😛 -Chris       
    • KyleK29 this is a type of "IF" trade I've been researching for a ORB strategy. DAS unlike IOS doesn't seem to have the ability to execute a buy or a short at a specific price and then place a specfic stop loss price or sell at some R, or a trail.  Seems like you can do this mechanically but a hotkey would be helpful.  Does one exists? @Thor
    • Hi everyone, I joined BBT less than a month ago, I live in the DMV area, Maryland. I am happy to discover there is a DMV club. What are you guys up to usually?
    • Hello!  If you are new to BBT and wondering how to get started, please do not worry.  You are not alone.  This is a cohort of new members who are just starting their TRAINING journey.  We're not to real-time TRADING yet, but just starting to get through the webinars, figuring out DAS Simulator, etc.  Message if interested and we will figure this out together.
