    We can now process orders anytime, just like if we did it manually. All the details here.

    Hey everyone! Excited to have found the BBT community. I'm 44 and recently moved to the Cincinnati area. I have driven past a billboard about learning day trading for over a year now, and for some reason it resonated with me this week. Mainly I think what prompted this was listing to Tom Bilyeu taking about breaking the time for money equation. I've had in interest in stocks and stock investing for a long time now, but I've always hesitated about day trading for all of the negative stigma around it. But as I started to look into this one company's training program, I started looking around the marketplace and Reddit and have come to believe the overwhelming feedback out there that you don't necessarily need to pay for expensive trainings and individualized coaching, but you DO need an appetite and willingness to learn and the support of a strong community. Enter BBT. I found Andrew's book and the BBT podcast and am grateful for both! I'm not all the way through the book yet, but I'm excited to crush it pretty quickly, join the next onboarding training, then getting after it! I'm really looking forward to getting to meet everyone, learning the trade smartly, then graduating to real investments in the near future. Cheers!

    Just to confirm, the proper order is: 1. double click the StopLoss price 2. hit the entry button (order fills) 3. hit the exit button (without clicking on anything) 4. go for a swim in the pool 5. come back later and count your money I'm glad to give back to the community. (and programming hotkeys is fun!) Good luck! Russell

    Okay, I've got some HotKey Scripts for you to TRY OUT IN SIM. (never test things live) Each trade has two HotKeys. The first one is the entry order where you double-click your Stop-Loss point. (I basically just removed the TriggerOrder from your HotKey Script and moved it to my Exit Script) The second one is the exit order which you would place immediately after your entry order is completely filled. Don't double-click anything between the "fill" and when you activate the Exit HotKey because it gets it's calculations from your Entry HotKey. Here is what the Exit HotKey does: 1. places a one-share RangeMarket order with a 1R/1R range. 2. Triggers a remaining-shares RangeMarket order with a 3R/BE range. There is no other way to do what you want (as far as I know) without the tiny one-share order to trigger the Stop-Loss move to B/E. With these HotKeys, this is what "should" happen (and it worked for me in SIM today). If your 1R Stop-Loss is hit, the Trigger order exits your WHOLE position "near" your target Stop-Loss. If the 1R profit point is reached, you will exit one share, then the Trigger order will be sent so that you will either profit 3R or B/E on the remaining position. (You could change the exit orders to exit more of your position at 1R if you want to use these HotKeys to "partial" at 1R... something like Share=POS*.5 or Share=POS*.33 with your Trigger order remaining Share=POS) Be aware, the first exit order of one share will cost you about $1 in fees more per trade if you are with IB. (I mistakenly said $2 earlier) (Fees are no longer a danger when your orders are more than 200 shares) Here are the Scripts, you should be able to copy-paste them directly into your HotKeys. LONG ENTRY CXL ALLSYMB; StopPrice=Price; DefShare=BP*0.975; Price=Ask-Price+0.00; SShare=25/Price; Share=DefShare-SShare; DefShare=DefShare+SShare; SShare=Share; Sshare=DefShare-SShare; Share=0.5*SShare; TogSShare; ROUTE=LIMIT; Price=Ask+0.1; TIF=DAY+; BUY=Send; DefShare=200; Price=Ask-StopPrice*3+Ask; LONG EXIT CXL ALLSYMB; Route=STOP; StopType=RangeMKT; LowPrice=StopPrice; HighPrice=AvgCost-StopPrice+AvgCost; Share=1; TIF=DAY+; Sell=Send; TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:RANGEMKT LowPrice:AvgCost HighPrice:Price ACT:SELL QTY:POS TIF:DAY+; SHORT ENTRY CXL ALLSYMB; StopPrice=Price; DefShare=BP*0.975; Price=Price-Bid+0.00; SShare=25/Price; Share=DefShare-SShare; DefShare=DefShare+SShare; SShare=Share; Sshare=DefShare-SShare; Share=0.5*SShare; TogSShare; ROUTE=LIMIT; Price=Bid-0.1; TIF=DAY+; SELL=Send; DefShare=200; Price=StopPrice-Bid*3; Price=Bid-Price; SHORT EXIT CXL ALLSYMB; Route=STOP; StopType=RangeMKT; HighPrice=StopPrice; LowPrice=AvgCost+AvgCost-StopPrice; Share=1; TIF=DAY+; Buy=Send; TriggerOrder=RT:STOP StopType:RangeMKT LowPrice:Price HighPrice:AvgCost ACT:BUY QTY:POS TIF:DAY+; Hope this helps, Best, Russell Landwehr

    In this video AdventureDogLA shows us how to set up Risk Controls in DAS Trader Pro. Risk Controls enforce limitations such as maximum daily loss, maximum shares traded per day, etc. Risk Control Page is a safety net to keep in control our loses, either to have an external control over our behavior as traders or due to a contingency such as failures in the internet connection, electric power outages, broker failures, etc. You can find "Open Risk Control Page" in DAS Trader Pro Account window, just right-click in any row of that window and Risk Control Page will open as a popup browser window to let you update your risk control settings. Some considerations: 1. This configuration works with real accounts and simulator 2. You can deactivate settings "Risk Control Page" anytime by leaving all in blanks and clicking SUBMIT 3. When you are using DAS linked to IB, or simulator, the Risk Control settings are handled by DAS. DAS staff updates your settings manually (the form is emailed to them) anywhere from 2 to 30 minutes during business hours. 4. In LOSS fields, enter a positive number. 5. “No new order” avoids orders for the current day 6. “Pos Loss” = Position loss. 7. “Enable Auto Stop” will automatically close your positions when you hit the Max Loss / Total Loss. 8. “Max Share - Max auto stop execution share per day” = How many shares can be sold / bought by the Auto Stop mechanism. 9. “Max Auto Stop Order Size” = Maximum size per order made by the Auto Stop mechanism. 10.“Delay for next order if exceed max order size (sec)” = Time between orders if the Auto Stop needs to place multiple orders to close your positions. 11. “Stop Gain Account Net Realized PL Thresh“, “Drawdown Percent of Max Net PL“ , “Pos Stop Gain Thresh “ and “Drawdown” - Like Auto Stop but for gains. The threshold is the profit the Stop Gain is looking to hit, the Drawdown is how much it can drop from that target before your positions are closed. Example, you set a threshold of 2000 and drawdown of 20(%). When you make 2000 in P/L, the Stop Gain will trigger, and will close your positions if you drop 20% ($400) from that value, closing you out at $1600 Net P/L.

    Ever wanted to swap line styles on the fly and make a rainbow on your chart? You can do that in The hotkey isn't the easiest to understand, so I very quickly made a web utility for you (link below). How to Use: Go to URL: http://kaelmedia.com/projects/das-line-config/ Select a Line Type, default is HorzLine Select a Line Style, default is SolidLine Select a Color, default is Barney Select a Width, default is 1 Hit "Generate" Glance at the preview window and see if it is what you wanted. If it is, hit the "Copy" button and it'll be placed in your computers Clipboard. If you wish to share you creation, press the "Share" button and a special link will be placed on your clipboard to post in the forums. Example: http://kaelmedia.com/projects/das-line-config/?hotkey=ConfigTrendLine horzline dotline:035aab:1; Paste the copied hotkey (looks like: ConfigTrendLine horzline dotline:035aab:1; ) into your DAS Hotkey Configuration. Optionally, bookmark or save the line so you can edit it in the future (it adds the settings to the browsers URI/URL). How the Hotkey Works: The hotkey as designed will swap the DEFAULT config for the Line Type chosen, each type has one default stored for the user. So if trigger a hotkey with a horizontal line with a blue color, your very next (and all following lines) horizontal line you trigger on the chart will be that configuration (blue). Because of this, I have a "default line" hotkey and a series of colored hotkeys, this allows me to toggle back and fourth. Advanced Uses: Go HERE.

    Hey everyone! I know I'm just getting started, but I thought this was a good time to check in with the community for any guidance on next steps. I finished reading Andrew's book How to Day Trade for a Living, started trading on a paper trading account, and nailed $9.99 in profit my fist week (lost almost $500 though)! So I'm looking around for those of you who are a bit further along than me, which should be just about anyone, who have started down the path and have felt they've been making progress. Any suggestions on where to go from here? I figure I'll go through all of the Stock Trading courses offered in the Education Center. I signed up for a full year membership, so I want to get as much out of my membership to start. But I want to be careful about going too far down the rabbit hole of watching videos and reading books and falling into the thought trap of needing more knowledge or "maybe in the next book." How long did folks stay with Andrew's book before branching out? I'm using his Advanced Techniques more as a reference right now and am SUPER interested in Thor's book. For now I'm listening to Trading in the Zone because figure a book on trading psychology would be pretty safe. As for community resources, I've been listening in to the pre-market BBT sessions, which has been great, but I feel I'm SO new to this at I don't really know what to ask or don't want to bog down the chat with newbie questions. I also really liked my first week of trying to trade the open and experimenting with ORB strategies, but I know that once I'm back to work (been on vacation this past week) that late-morning is probably the better session for me to trade, and I'm nervous that most of the trading focus is at the open and there aren't as many good opportunities to trade late morning or over lunch. If anyone knows of some good material (videos / resources) to take advantage of post-open trading, that'd be really helpful. Thanks!

    Hey Wis, welcome, I am curious how you 'almost' lost $500, it sounds that that may have been a trade/s that you let go beyond your initial stop. The #1 rule I ask myself everyday when a trade starts to go against me is 'does this make sense'. I did this today! When I say 'No' I exit the trade. Losing money hurts but staying in a trade that does that make sense hurts move, even if you don't lose money on it. The feeling of not being in control is much worse. Suggestion, downsize your max loss risk to under $50 per day for a couple of months. See you in chat!

    flip is just a double position stop but sometimes you may be not filled because of margin requirements so be aware of that

    Newer versions of DAS have two options to visualize menus and settings. Go to Setup > Other configuration and you have USE NEW CONFIG WINDOW selected. That´s the new menus and settings. Uncheck it and you will get the old menus, just like the videos.

    $PRICE+($TARGETR*2); this is not possible in DASTrader as it dooes not know the mathematical logics and brackets you need to do $PRICE+$TARGETR+$TARGETR instead see the log for the errors you get. there will be an error about route not being "LIMIT" etc. overall you should switch to the new syntax and forget the old one as the calculations done in the old syntax are now useless and it will be easier for you to understand what is going on rather than studying why the switches between SShare and Share are there

    https://open.substack.com/pub/traderpeter/p/das-trader-advanced-hotkeys-part?r=1wujo4&utm_campaign=post&utm_medium=web to use dynamic risk instead of static risk we can use calculations by reading the Account Object for example: $myACC=GetAccountObj("YOUR_ACCOUNT_NAME_HERE"); $myIE=$myACC.equity; then use the $myIE variable instead of the static risk. I will cover it in the next article I am preparing regarding the reading of object properties. Or as I mentioned in the other posts, do it by changing weekly the static risk

    For those who may be interested: I have successfully transitioned from day-trading stocks to day-trading options @avi style. I ONLY buy calls or puts for day-trading. There are videos from @Megan and @Avi in the bbt education center about this approach and the advantages of day-trading options vs stocks such as lesser capital requirements etc. Thank you @megan and @avi. https://bearbulltraders.com/course/webinars-mentorship/lesson/strategy-2/topic/setup-execution-results-avi/ https://bearbulltraders.com/course/options-webinars-2/lesson/the-power-of-options-for-day-trading-megan-5/ Also, I have made the transition from DAS-TDA to thinkorswim(tos). The main misconception out there is that the FILLS in tos are worse than that of DAS. However after couple of years of DAS-TDA and comparing my experience to tos, I can assertively say that the tos fills are not that bad especially for day-trading options. The main things that are missing from tos is a good Level 2 and scripting like DAS has. If you get Bookmap, the Level2 void can be overcome. Since I am day-trading options, the Active Trader on tos works well and I am not missing the use of scripts.

    I am confused with the difference between the DAS Trader Pro account and the simulator account. I understand that the simulator is not connected to a brokerage and costs approx $100/month. The DAS Trader Pro is connected to the brokerage and costs $150/month. I currently have a 3 month simulator plan. I also have an IB account. If I set up a DAS Pro trader account does that mean I will be paying $250/month to DAS for both the Trader pro acct and the sim? Or does the Trader Pro account include the simulator? Do both accounts have to be configured separately, or do the screen formats sync automatically? Can I simply switch from one account to the other, or do I have to log out and re-log into the other. Sorry for the confusion. I was briefly using the IB trading platform and it was easy upon login to choose either paper or live trading. It seems expensive to pay for the DAS pro trader and the simulator separately. Thank you for any help or if this question has already been answered. I did search the forum. Kelly

    Hello BBT My family and I will be travelling to Vancouver in our RV. We are outdoor people who prefer to stay in a rural campground and not in the city. We also hike several times a week. A typical hike for us is around 5-6 miles maximum as we have two kids with us. I am posting this to see if anyone is planning to do any hiking or outdoor activities that would be good for meeting up and talking trading.

    I have been working today on 2 hotkeys for myself. The script(s) uses the defined R/R script from previous Kyles hotkeys. It performs the following: Cancels any previous orders for the symbol Enters the trade, ensuring total shares bought is equally divisible by 4 (rounded down); this prevents having extra shares hanging around after the range trades complete or stop out. Creates a range order at your stop level for 1/4 of your initial shares bought with a profit level of 2R Creates a range order at your stop level for 1/4 of your initial shares bought with a profit level of 3R Creates a range order at your stop level for 1/4 of your initial shares bought with a profit level of 4R Creates a single order at your stop for the remaining 1/4 shares; This allows you to ride the last 1/4 to whatever level you want before exiting As with Kyles hot key scripts, you double click your chart at the level you want to place your stop then press your button or hot key The Script for the long entry CXL ALLSYMB; StopPrice=Price-0.01;DefShare=BP*0.5;Share=DefShare*0.333*Price*0.01;Price=Ask-Price+0.01;SShare=Share/Price;Share=DefShare-SShare;DefShare=DefShare+SShare;SShare=Share;Sshare=DefShare-SShare;Share=0.5*SShare;Share=Share/4;Share=Share*4;TogSShare;ROUTE=SMRTL;Price= Ask+0.05;TIF=DAY+;BUY=Send;DefShare=1000;Price=Ask-StopPrice*2+Ask;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:RANGE LowPrice:StopPrice HighPrice:Price ACT:SELL QTY:POS*.25 TIF:DAY+;Price=Ask-StopPrice*3+Ask;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:RANGE LowPrice:StopPrice HighPrice:Price ACT:SELL QTY:POS*.25 TIF:DAY+;Price=Ask-StopPrice*4+Ask;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:RANGE LowPrice:StopPrice HighPrice:Price ACT:SELL QTY:POS*.25 TIF:DAY+;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:MARKET PX:StopPrice-0.3 ACT:SELL STOPPRICE:StopPrice QTY:Pos*.25 TIF:DAY+; and the Short CXL ALLSYMB; StopPrice=Price+0.01;DefShare=BP*0.5;Share=DefShare*0.333*Price*0.01;Price=Price-Bid+0.01;SShare=Share/Price;Share=DefShare-SShare;DefShare=DefShare+SShare;SShare=Share;Sshare=DefShare-SShare;Share=0.5*SShare;Share=Share/4;Share=Share*4;TogSShare;ROUTE=SMRTL;Price= bid-0.05;TIF=DAY+;SELL=Send;DefShare=1000;Price=StopPrice-Bid*2;Price=Bid-Price;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:RANGE LowPrice:Price HighPrice:StopPrice ACT:BUY QTY:POS*.25 TIF:DAY+;Price=StopPrice-Bid*3;Price=Bid-Price;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:RANGE LowPrice:Price HighPrice:StopPrice ACT:BUY QTY:POS*.25 TIF:DAY+;Price=StopPrice-Bid*4;Price=Bid-Price;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:RANGE LowPrice:Price HighPrice:StopPrice ACT:BUY QTY:POS*.25 TIF:DAY+;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:MARKET PX:StopPrice+0.3 ACT:BUY STOPPRICE:StopPrice QTY:Pos*.25 TIF:DAY+; Long $50 Risk CXL ALLSYMB; StopPrice=Price-0.01;DefShare=BP*0.5;Price=Ask-Price+0.01;SShare=50/Price;Share=DefShare-SShare;DefShare=DefShare+SShare;SShare=Share;Sshare=DefShare-SShare;Share=0.5*SShare;Share=Share/4;Share=Share*4;TogSShare;ROUTE=SMRTL;Price= Ask+0.05;TIF=DAY+;BUY=Send;DefShare=1000;Price=Ask-StopPrice*2+Ask;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:RANGE LowPrice:StopPrice HighPrice:Price ACT:SELL QTY:POS*.25 TIF:DAY+;Price=Ask-StopPrice*3+Ask;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:RANGE LowPrice:StopPrice HighPrice:Price ACT:SELL QTY:POS*.25 TIF:DAY+;Price=Ask-StopPrice*4+Ask;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:RANGE LowPrice:StopPrice HighPrice:Price ACT:SELL QTY:POS*.25 TIF:DAY+;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:MARKET PX:StopPrice-0.3 ACT:SELL STOPPRICE:StopPrice QTY:Pos*.25 TIF:DAY+; Short $50 Risk CXL ALLSYMB; StopPrice=Price+0.01;DefShare=BP*0.5;Price=Price-Bid+0.01;SShare=50/Price;Share=DefShare-SShare;DefShare=DefShare+SShare;SShare=Share;Sshare=DefShare-SShare;Share=0.5*SShare;Share=Share/4;Share=Share*4;TogSShare;ROUTE=SMRTL;Price= bid-0.05;TIF=DAY+;SELL=Send;DefShare=1000;Price=StopPrice-Bid*2;Price=Bid-Price;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:RANGE LowPrice:Price HighPrice:StopPrice ACT:BUY QTY:POS*.25 TIF:DAY+;Price=StopPrice-Bid*3;Price=Bid-Price;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:RANGE LowPrice:Price HighPrice:StopPrice ACT:BUY QTY:POS*.25 TIF:DAY+;Price=StopPrice-Bid*4;Price=Bid-Price;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:RANGE LowPrice:Price HighPrice:StopPrice ACT:BUY QTY:POS*.25 TIF:DAY+;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:MARKET PX:StopPrice+0.3 ACT:BUY STOPPRICE:StopPrice QTY:Pos*.25 TIF:DAY+; Everything prior to defshare=1000 in each script is completely from the original Risk/Reward Hotkeys except the bit of code that ensures the number of shares is equally divisible by 4.

    1- Go to Study Config on your chart 2- Select the Pivot Point study. 3- Select ConfigEx 4- Uncheck 'Include in Scale' What seems to be happening is DAS is squeezing all your cams on one chart so you can see all of the levels at the same time. This can be helpful sometimes, but not always. Good luck.

    Yes I use leverage but my rules are around trade size rather than using a certain amount of leverage. For example (not my real numbers), if I want my stop size on TSLA to be 50c and I want to risk $100 on my trade then I want 200 shares, regardless of whether that means I'm using no leverage or all my leverage that's the trade I want to take. Of course with margin you can get yourself in serious issues if you don't trade properly and abide by your stops but that's for each individual to assess their own risk of not doing that (and if you can't then trading is probably not the right career).

    Hello I have been slowly burned by the market for 1.5 years now. It's really time to put up a journal to track my own trades. I am too poor to afford to pay for monthly fees. Please help me review my trading journal on Google Sheet to see if there is any data that you think I should track. If you are also interested in using my template, go ahead to download the Google Sheet into your Google drive for use.

    Hi everyone and welcome to our new forum on swing trading. As you likely know, swing trading involves taking positions in a stock or other security and holding that position for as short as overnight to days or weeks or even longer. If you are new to swing trading and want to learn more, reading Brian Pezim's book "How to Swing Trade" would be a good starting point. It is available on Amazon. We expect this forum will be used by our members to present and openly discuss swing trading opportunities. The one advantage of swing trading is that the trader has the opportunity to slow the decision process and plan their trades without having to make a quick decision on whether to enter a trade. Thanks in advance for being part of this forum and we hope this forum can offer up some profitable opportunities for our members.

    Hola, amigos, creo que no me había presentado, aunque ya llevo rato aquí. Mi nombre es Josué De Lara, soy de México donde vivo actualmente, aunque la mayor parte de mi vida la he pasado en Texas donde estudie desde la preparatoria hasta el doctorado. Me interese en el “daytrading” gracias al libro de Andrew, me fascino. Me gustaría mejorar en el daytrading con el propósito de mejorar mis ingresos, ya que en Latinoamérica no son muy buenos aún con grados académicos avanzados. Hice una hoja de calculo para calcular la cantidad de acciones a comprar de acuerdo con la emisora. Me es útil ya que utilizo TWS en vez de DAS y no puedo usar las “hotkeys” de Kyle. Espero le sea útil a alguno de ustedes. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ElLZ2h41da1xgtz6KI_Df0PeqP754kRMDhJe60aefL4/edit?usp=sharing

    Hola todos, mi alias es Troady, nombre real es Luis Arteaga, Cubano de origen, Norteamericano de nacionalidad despues de haber sido Holandes tambien por 18 años. Resido actualmente en Naples, Florida desde el 2004, donde me rompo la cabeza a diario dirigiendo una compañia de transportes que poseo con varios camiones de carretera. Soy graduado del Intituto tecnologico de Utrecht en hardware y software de computadores (clase del 87), aunque mi pasion hasta hace poco era manejar camiones y ir a lugares remotos, gracias a eso conozco varios continentes, cerca de 60 paises y hablo varios idiomas. He hecho algunos pinitos en Forex y Crypto, aunque sin resultados a destacar, llevo siguiendo stocks y Wall Street por algun tiempo y hace poco choque con el libro de Andrew Aziz "Day trading for a living" y me impresiono lo sincero, franco y explicativo del libro. Decidi contactar a alguien de la comunidad en Español y despues de hablar con Abiel, decidi unirme a la comunidad de traders. Aqui estamos, espero que por mucho tiempo y espero hacer buenas amistades dentro de la comunidad.

    Hi there I am sharing a sample swing trading plan to trade stocks in short-term rallies in a long -term uptrend. This is for discussion purposes only. Please feel free to send comments/discussions so our BBT Forum can benefit from same. The sample plan is based on information from instructor training, textbooks, Webinars, other swing trading plans, and information available on the internet over last few years. One good point up front is to keep things simple and this seems to be working for me. This is a sample base Stock Trading Plan that can be detailed to suit individual requirements. In summary, the plan generally consists of: 1. Prepare a Watchlist of stocks with good fundamentals: growth and revenue 2. Fundamental analysis of each stock in the Watchlist 3. Technical Analysis of each stock in the Watchlist: Trend, trend strength, momentum, and comparison to market, sector, industry and sub-industries 4. Graphical analysis/markup: confirmation of: long-term trend, short-term retracement, and start of short-term rally; buy point, projected target price, projected target time frame, stop loss exit point, partial and final profit exit points 5. Risk Management 6. Miscellaneous routines and discussions Initially the routines seems time consuming but after time it gets better. Please note this is not an investment advice. Please seek investment advise from your own investment advisor. The attachments and notes are for illustration and discussion purposes only on our BBT Forum. 1-Swing Trading Plan - Short-term Swing Trading - Presentation.pdf

    I made a small application to review my trades and make some statistics about the results of each strategy. I wrote it because I needed some tools to speed up my journaling and to help me reviewing my trades and didn’t find something out there that was exactly personalizable for my style of trading and my way of journaling... Thought that sharing it with you guys would be a way to give back some of the great help that I received from this community!

    Hello, Following hotkey is Kyle's for dynamic risk based off your stop-loss and entry: StopPrice=Price-0;DefShare=BP*0.925;Price=Ask-Price+0.00;SShare=50/Price;Share=DefShare-SShare;DefShare=DefShare+SShare;SShare=Share;Sshare=DefShare-SShare;Share=0.5*SShare;TogSShare;ROUTE=SMRTL;Price= Ask+0.05;TIF=DAY+;BUY=Send;DefShare=200;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:MARKET PX:StopPrice-0.05 ACT:SELL STOPPRICE:StopPrice QTY:Pos TIF:DAY+; This is my edited version: StopPrice=Price-0;DefShare=BP*0.925;Price=Ask-Price+0.00;SShare=280/Price;Share=DefShare-SShare;DefShare=DefShare+SShare;SShare=Share;Sshare=DefShare-SShare;Share=0.5*SShare;TogSShare;ROUTE=SMRTM;Price= Ask+0.00;TIF=DAY;BUY=Send;DefShare=200;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:MARKET PX:StopPrice-0.05 ACT:SELL STOPPRICE:StopPrice QTY:Pos TIF:DAY; It is modified slightly with Ask+0.00 instead of Ask+0.05, and DAY instead of DAY+. Today I took a trade on SPI with a .20 stop-loss, risking $280. So 280/.20=1400 shares, but I was only bought in with 233 shares. Any ideas why that might be would be appreciated, this has happened a couple times now, seemingly randomly. Cheers, RR

    Kylie, I saw something strange while using the hotkeys on CMEG DasTraderPro platform . Using this hotkey : StopPrice=Price-0.01;DefShare=BP*0.75;Price=Ask-Price+0.01;SShare=40/Price;Share=DefShare-SShare;DefShare=DefShare+SShare;SShare=Share;Sshare=DefShare-SShare;Share=0.5*SShare;TogSShare;ROUTE=LIMIT;Price= Ask+0.05;TIF=DAY+;BUY=Send;DefShare=300;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:MARKET PX:StopPrice-0.02 ACT:SELL STOPPRICE:StopPrice QTY:Pos TIF:DAY+; Observation : The hotkey was triggered and large number of shares where bought with the hope of using the 40 dollars stoploss on my BP 30k account . Now the stoploss vanish from the trade window buy did not stop my trade . I end up almost blowing up my entire trading account as the stoploss did not trigger as expected . Kyle could you PLEASE check and confirm whether the script i am using is the right . Please note that the hotkeys above worked fine as expected on the simulator(worked well as expected on sim account , but not live account) , but not during a live trading session . Kyle am I missing a point here ? Please do advice .

    i have observed similar issue stated above . Could it be related to the dasTraderPro IB version ?

    I chatted with an IB representative who was very helpful. In short, it seems like there is nothing to worried about when it comes to the exchange rate. I don't think you have to convert everything to USD (or deposit in USD) either. Here is an example. If I have $1,000 CAD and $0 USD and I want to buy a $100 stock, then I am borrowing $100USD from IB. At this point, I have -$100 balance in USD. If I have a winning trade and now I sell the stock at $120, then I have a $20 profit. My USD account balance now will be $20. If I lose and sell the stock at $80, then now I have -$20 balance in USD. For -$20, I will have to pay some interest to IB or you can convert the amount from your CAD balance. As you can see, there is no place for the exchange rate to come in because I would be simply trading in borrowed USD, not CAD that is converted to USD. However, the exchange rate changes every day and when it comes to the total balance shown in USD it changes every day even if you don't trade at all. With the $1,000 CAD scenario, if the USD/CAD exchange rate is 0.8, then your balance in USD is $800, but if the rate drops to 0.78, then the balance will be $780. You would still have $1,000 Canadian. If the CAD value drops significantly, then the total value of your balance in USD drops significantly too and even if you win some trades (in USD), you may have less USD equivalent (as your base currency) at the end of the day than when you started trading in the morning. I think it is what happened to the OP. But I believe you would still have your original CAD balance in your account (plus the positive USD won in the trades).

    Thanks Paul. I did call DAS just now (702.943.1881) and they said I would have to pay double if I linked DAS to both CMEG and IB US simultaneously. Although you can link DAS to more than one IB US account simultaneously for no extra charge, that does not apply for different brokers. Also this question that I asked is premature as both the 14 day free trial and the 3 month BBT promotional discount for DAS do not use or require a broker.

    I am using a streamdeck XL. Thanks to Kyle for the ICONS and DAS scripts. I can now focus on process, trading well and less calculating. I am testing in SIM, and I may need to separate the LONG MENU and SHORT MENU to different profiles.

    I know my Streamdeck layout by heart and can trade without looking at it, but it comes down to personal preference. Andrew uses hotkeys. I like being able to have a visual fallback and to have a ton of hotkey combinations for various things, without having to memorize it. It has cut down my hotkey "errors" that I used to get. I probably have around 100 different DAS hotkeys, trying to memorize that would be a nightmare. I'd say StreamDeck has an advantage when it comes to traveling if you don't trade on the same keyboard, as it's smaller and easier to travel with, thus allowing you to keep the feedback exactly the same no-matter where you are (e.g. switching from desktop keyboard to laptop keyboard can be like relearning the hotkeys).

    I shared my thoughts on the classic ABCD/Flag strategy. This pattern presents itself in virtually every move, across multiple timeframes. The formation consists of: 1. Run-up/sell-off 2. Profit taking/consolidation 3. Continuation Let me know your thoughts!

    Hi there, This might be a really easy question but how to change the color of Horizontal line, mine is stuck in light yellow, I can barely see it when I try to draw support and resistant lines. Thanks!
