  1. when you use the same hotkey twice the stop loss is set where you clicked so if you do it twice in a second your risk is doubled but only one stop loss for the whole position exists the way you described the scale in looks to me like bad idea but whatever works for you here some useful keys i use SET STOP LOSS to B/E ;CXL ALLSYMB;Route=Stop;Price=AvgCost;StopType=MARKET;STOPPRICE=AvgCost;StopPrice=Round2;Share=Pos;TIF=DAY;Send=Reverse; SET STOP 0.5% below price for LONG position: CXL ALLSYMB;ROUTE=Stop;StopType=Market;StopPrice=AvgCost*0.995;Share=Pos;TIF=DAY;SELL=Send; Update stop where clicked with position ;CXL ALLSYMB;Route=Stop;Share=Pos;StopPrice=Price;StopType=MARKET;TIF=DAY;Send=Reverse;
  2. you add at the end of the script the stop loss script part. example sell 25% of position: CXL ALLSYMB;ROUTE=LIMIT;Price=BID-0.05;Price=Round2;Share=Pos*.25;TIF=DAY;SELL=Send;ROUTE=STOP;StopType=Market;StopPrice=AvgCost;Share=Pos-share;TIF=DAY; for the scale in i cant help you much with an example as i never understood the logic of scaling in as i use 1 hotkey for entering and if i want more i just do it one more time or i use 2nd hotkey as a free roll the less hotkeys the less chance you mess up but the logic is the same - you add ROUTE=STOP;StopType=Market;StopPrice=AvgCost;Share=Pos-share;TIF=DAY; (for long position) at the end of your script. AvgCost is the Break Even price or you use StopPrice (Price) which is the clicked price from the chart there are tons of examples in this and other topics too
  3. none of your add/cover/sell scripts contain a stop loss order so no wonder you do not have any stop set after using them
  4. 50 shares of $100 with $10 risk is $99.80 not $98.80 there are hotkeys which will do future entries for you you can always click to the chart and hit the hotkey to set your stop wherever you clicked anyway i think it is not possible to do as you described as in DAS it is not possible to do mathematical operations like Price-(10/Pos) because it will count it as it goes: (Price-10)/Pos which is in your case 100-10/50 which is then incorrectly counted as 90/50 which is 1.8 therefore you need to click on the chart so you define the stop so it does not have to be counted. you can count the stop by percentages though. so on 100$ stock you can do Price*0.98 which effectively substracts 2% of your position price but that would make your trade of $400 stock to make a stop at $392 which has nothing to do with your desired $10 risk per trade just find another way to work with DAS
  5. just my opinion... if its US account you are gonna be taxed in US. US and UK have tax agreement so you wont get taxed twice. if you have permanent stay in a country you can be taxed there by your own will but since you will be working in UK and pay UK taxes from your salary then nobody would ever bother to deal with the trading taxes. Same as you wont bother to ask UK for the money when you retire.
  6. the GPU. in case you want to trade only on that laptop you do not need gaming HW also 144Hz screen is for no use to you
  7. @AFELDMANyes absolutely fine (actually overkill)
  8. first of all, thank you for the precise description when posting. really extraordinary these days. TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:MARKET PX:StopPrice-0 ACT:SELL STOPPRICE:StopPrice QTY:Pos TIF:DAY+ is the correct script for the stop order so if it does not work then it could be wrong route setting for your broker also make sure your montage Style is set to STOP order type

      Thanks Peter. Have a great day.

  10. my feeling is that your other desktop has some weird resolution settings. either non native resolution or a zoom
  11. you need to find the mistakes in these and improve by avoiding them from these 2 i like the MRNA trade but on AAPL you went long after that big top wick on 5 and many top wicks on 1 before, volume was low too so you do not take a break on low volume. ORB is a trend continuation pattern same as ABCD so if there is no trend and just chop do not expect it to break MRNA i like more it was a fter a hammer at least. but was it a stock in play? actually you nearly hit the top of the price and since then it goes only down. try to find a reason why it happened. was it gapping up too much? did it make the ATR move in premarket already? what was the target? was it realistic target? after 1000 orbs you will feel it but there needs to be awareness in you. it is not enough to take it and then tell yourself it failed. next time try to find reasons not to enter and if you find none then enter
  12. so what is your laptop resolution? maybe you have just the windows resolution settings wrong - too much zoomed or font settings. other apps fonts are looking ok?
