  1. Great thanks for your help! I've tried out your Stop loss hotkey which works great but still trying to figure out how to avoid the montage order rout changing to stop, any ideas? Not sure if there is a way to permanently set the order route to Market?
  2. Hey, I'm having issues with hotkeys in DAS. I just want to place long or short orders for 100, 200, 300 shares etc. Then I want to be able to place a Stop Loss about 20 cents away from my position. I also use the Move Stop To Breakeven script. I also use sell/cover 5%, sell/cover all hotkeys. When I place a long order of say 100 shares, it works fine. Then I use the Add Stop Loss - 20 cents hotkey which works fine too. However, after adding this, it then changes the montage order to "Stop" permanently and I have to manually go in and change back to limit. After adding the S/L, if I press Buy 100 shares, it comes up as an OCO order. If I try to sell the 100 shares using my sell hotkey, it also comes up as an OCO. I just want to place simple orders but seems like either I'm missing something or DAS is just awkward to use. Also, after using breakeven hotkey, it does the same and rejects my order when I try to sell/cover positions. Some help would be much appreciated as the only way around this is to change ticker then change back to the ticker which I have a position in to refresh the montage, but this could lose precious seconds! Below are my hotkeys: Long 100 Shares: Route=SMRTL;Price=Ask+0.05;Share=100;TIF=DAY;BUY=SEND Short 100 Shares: Route=SMRTL;Price=Bid-0.05;Share=100;TIF=DAY;SELL=SEND Sell 5% ROUTE=SMRTL;Price=Bid;Price=Round2;Share=Pos*0.05;TIF=DAY+;SEND=Reverse Cover 5% ROUTE=SMRTL;Price=Ask;Price=Round2;Share=Pos*0.05;TIF=DAY+;SEND=Reverse Add Stop Loss -20 cents ROUTE=STOP;StopType=Market;StopPrice=AvgCost-0.20;Share=Pos;TIF=DAY+;SELL=Send; Move S/L to breakeven ALLSYMB;Route=Stop;Price=AvgCost;StopType=MARKET;STOPPRICE=AvgCost;StopPrice=Round2;Share=Pos;TIF=DAY;Send=Reverse
  3. Anyone know whether the X Keys keypad is better than stream deck for using hotkeys on DAS? https://xkeys.com/xk24.html
  4. Hi, I’m just wondering if anyone uses the phone app for DAS trader pro? Does it work ok? I want to have it as a back up to get out of a trade, incase of internet dropout on my desktop.
  5. Hi there! So I'm looking to build a multipurpose desk setup for my main work and my day trading. I'm going to build my desk and wondered if anyone had any tips or experience doing this? I'm probably going build an L shaped desk and buy 2 x tabletops or wooden door slabs for the desktop. Then I'll buy an Ikea draw unit to go underneath on one side and a heavy duty desk frame to support the whole thing. I'll be using 4 x 24inch monitors on monitor arms plugged into my Mac Studio which will be running DAS pro on Mac's parallel desktop. I've got a stream deck XL and Logitech MX Master mouse. So I need to consider the weight of this setup when building the desk. Would be great to see photos of other peoples setups for inspiration! Any thoughts on my build would be great too, I'm open to better ideas people have. Also I'm currently using the latest apple wireless keyboard which I find works well but I'm wondering if a mechanical keyboard would make a significant difference? I've been eyeing up the Logitech G815.
