  1. @peterB is way better then me with those question. best!
  2. I use the "BBT 3 month SIM" subscribtion. I try some of the hotkeys on your blog and this is not working. I will have to stay with the old syntax.
  3. Ok! Thz @peterB It help a lot. I did not find on the DAS website any documentation on the new syntax. Do you have anything? I will use your blog for reference for now.
  4. Hello, I saw in one of @peterB's posts on is Blog that it's possible to add lines with hotkeys in DAS. I would like to add target lines for my 1R and 2R target dynamically when I take a position. I tried adding code to Kyle's Hotkey without success. Can someone tell me what's wrong with this code? If you have any suggestions for improvement, that would be great. Thank you! StopPrice=Price-0.01; $STOP=Price-0.01; DefShare=BP*0.97; Price=Ask-Price+0.01; SShare=600/Price; Share=DefShare-SShare; DefShare=DefShare+SShare; SShare=Share; Sshare=DefShare-SShare; Share=0.5*SShare; TogSShare; ROUTE=LIMIT; Price= Ask+0.05; $PRICE = Ask; TIF=DAY; BUY=Send;DefShare=400; TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:MARKET PX:StopPrice-0.3 ACT:SELL STOPPRICE:StopPrice QTY:Share TIF:DAY; $TARGETR=$PRICE-$STOP; $RISKONE=$PRICE+$TARGETR; $RISKTWO=$PRICE+($TARGETR*2); FocusWidow TRADEFIVEMINUTES; DrawHorzLineWithPrice($RISKONE); DrawHorzLineWithPrice($RISKTWO);
  5. Hey Dav003, In Canada we don't have the PDT rule. Check for INBK it's a good broker. They have office in Montréal. As canadian or Québecois, I feel safe with them. For paper trading, if you use DAS Trader Demo subscription, it already have a paper account integrated. Good luck!
  6. I don't have your talent and your knowledge in Das hotkey, but I'll get started on it. Thanks for all the tips in your blogs by the way. They are very usefull.
  7. From my end, I frequently employ the Moving Average Bands (MAB) ATR indicator on TradingView. (it's free after all!) (mab) ATR Band — Indicator by happymab — TradingView The ATR Band calculator on TradingView derives its calculations from the opening, which may not reflect the true ATR. Nonetheless, it proves highly beneficial, especially when trading gap stocks. I did try your solution, PeterB, but activating the advanced features caused some of my other hotkeys to stop working.
  8. Hello, if like me you are using a simulator and you want to get a realistic idea of broker costs associated with trading, here is a Python script that will allow you to estimate fees per ticker. When I trade a ticker more then once, I divide the total transaction price in my journal. To use it, you need to copy the "trade" spreadsheet from Das Trader into the Python prompt. The calculations are based on IBKR's fixed costs. Here's a video demonstrating how to use it: I can't attach python files so here the code: # Function to get the table from the user def get_table_from_prompt(): print("Please copy and paste the table (press Enter twice to finish):") table = [] while True: line = input() if not line: break table.append(line.split()) return table # Function to calculate transaction fees def calculate_transaction_fee(num_shares, share_price): commission = round(num_shares * 0.005, 2) + num_shares * share_price * 0.000008 + min(0.000145 * num_shares, 7.27) # Apply a minimum of $1 per transaction commission = max(commission, 1.00) # Apply a max of 1% per transaction total_cost_one_percent = round(num_shares * share_price * 0.01, 2) commission = min(commission, total_cost_one_percent) # Apply maximum commission of 1% return round(commission, 2) # Get the table from the user table = get_table_from_prompt() # Dictionary to store cumulative fees per action cumulative_fees = {} # Calculate fees for each transaction and accumulate fees per action for transaction in table: time, action, transaction_type, num_shares, share_price, _ = transaction fee = calculate_transaction_fee(int(num_shares), float(share_price)) if action not in cumulative_fees: cumulative_fees[action] = 0.0 cumulative_fees[action] += fee # Display cumulative fees per action, rounded to two decimals for action, total_fee in cumulative_fees.items(): total_fee_rounded = round(total_fee, 2) print(f"For action {action}, cumulative fees are {total_fee_rounded} USD.") # Calculate and display cumulative fees for the day daily_cumulative_fees = sum(cumulative_fees.values()) daily_cumulative_fees_rounded = round(daily_cumulative_fees, 2) print(f"\nThe cumulative fees for the day are {daily_cumulative_fees_rounded} USD.") good luck!
  9. With DAS Simulator, you don't need a IB account. Just the sim and you can try to trade.
  10. Hi Petromil1985, The DAS trader sim comes with a subscription to live market data feed. So you have real-time data as if you were trading with a real margin account. The only difference is that you don't have broker transaction fees. If you wish, BBT members benefit from a discount offer for a three-month subscription. This subscription is available with replay. Thus, you can download data from any trading day's tickers and practice outside market hours. If you don't take the discount. The replay is available as extra. Last time I check it was 10$US by month. Hope it help!
  11. Bonjour Traderglobetrotter! Je viens de voir ton message. Je vais t'envoyer un message en privé.
  12. Hi hurdleda! The link are there in step 2. best!
  13. Hello AlexG7, it's better to ask here: [email protected] the forum is not very active.
  14. Hi, I trade using the ATR. To see it on a chart, I use TradingView (free version) and I've added the "(mab) ATR Band" indicator to my chart. It's very helpful for seeing the boundaries of the ATR. The indicator is dynamic and changes throughout the day with prices. This prevents me, for example, from taking a short position when the price is already close to the lower limit. For the calculation check this article : Average True Range (ATR) Formula, What It Means, and How to Use It (investopedia.com)
  15. Hi NirajR, It's live in the Chatroom every week day.
  16. Try "Pop out" in the config menu of the chart you want to move.
  17. Hello BBT, My name is Mathieu. In English, I prefer to be called Matt. I live in Quebec. I've been a member of BBT for two months and I've been trading in SIM. My approach is serious. Every morning, we are two BBT French-speaking traders on Messenger. We share our ideas, our successes and our mistakes, as well as our challenges and our hopes. If you speak French and would like to join us, please let me know through this forum. Happy trading! Keep it green!
  18. I think it's not possible in DAS, but I use a trailing stop when I need it.
  19. Cette offre est encore valide!
  20. Certainly, let's explain the terms with a little help from Google and ChatGPT! 1. **IDAS** IDAS is the DAS Trader Pro platform designed for mobile devices. 2. **TotalView** TotalView is Nasdaq's premier data feed, which displays every single quote and order at every price level for Nasdaq-, NYSE-, MKT-, and regional-listed securities on Nasdaq. It provides visibility into all displayed quotes and orders attributed to specific market participants, including access to total displayed anonymous interest. 3. **IEX Deep** DEEP is used to receive real-time depth of book quotations directly from the IEX Exchange. The depth of book quotations received via DEEP provides an aggregated size of resting displayed orders at a specific price and side, without indicating the size or number of individual orders at any price level. 4. **Forex (Foreign Exchange)** Day traders in the foreign exchange (Forex) market engage in buying and selling currency pairs within the same trading day, with the aim of profiting from short-term price movements. Forex is highly liquid, and day traders use leverage to magnify potential gains or losses. 5. **FLOAT Data** In the context of day trading, "FLOAT" typically refers to the public float of a stock. The public float represents the number of shares available for trading by the general public, excluding closely-held shares. Day traders often consider the float when assessing the liquidity and potential price movements of a stock. 6. **Replay Level 1** Traders can use the ability to replay Level 1 market data to analyze their past trades or to practice and refine their strategies. It allows traders to review the last traded price, bid and ask prices available during historical trading sessions. 7. **ARCA OPRA** For day traders, "ARCA OPRA" might refer to options trading data on the NYSE Arca exchange that is reported to the Options Price Reporting Authority (OPRA). This data is crucial for options traders to make informed decisions regarding options contracts listed on the NYSE Arca. 8. **Level 1** Level 1 data, in day trading, provides essential real-time information, including the last trade price, bid price, and ask price. Day traders often use this information to monitor current market conditions and make quick trading decisions. 9.** Level 2** Day traders rely on Level 2 data to gain a deeper understanding of market depth. It includes a list of current buy and sell orders, the number of shares or contracts available at each price level, and quotes from market makers and ECNs. This detailed information helps day traders assess market liquidity and identify potential entry and exit points for their trades. voilà! AND the realtime data feed is included in those DAS subscribtion!
  21. Great Job! Nice drum machine by the way!
  22. Hi Yudyud, for Tradingview and Bookmap, you can use the feed from a broker like IBK. for tradingview for Bookmap good luck!
