  1. the streamdeck emulates any combination of keys you press on the keyboard so you need to start with the hotkey setup in tradestation like you had no streamdeck you start the streamdeck app and rightclick on the key you want to edit and select the appropriate menu and press the key combination you are using in tradestation then you can choose the custom text or icon for the key so it is easier to find
  2. if all above is truth then it is your antivirus/security software or appliance
  3. i understand what you need but in real life it will be very complicated as it will depend on the price of the stock being traded so your results and statistics will have no statistical value. of course you can count the risk as a percentage of the price but still it wont count you the size of the position. therefore i think it is best if your trades are each with the same risk or predefined risk if you want. risk $10 or $25 or $50 per trade. use the hotkeys to calculate the position and stop loss for you. if the stock moves to your direction press another hotkey to move the stop loss to B/E without any hassle
  4. this would immediately close your position so you need to wait a bit if the price action moves in your direction or against right from the entry. Then it is easily possible to update the stop loss to break even. though i do not know exactly why you need this behavior on your trades i do not recomend you to do it so because you would need only the 100% correct entries when the price goes only in your direction and not against nor sideways which is nearly impossible. there is always some spread...
  5. you can display the entries and exits with the triangles and then add easily a line to that level if you need to by hitting page down and clik on that level.
  6. if you trade each trade with the same risk $15 then at the end of the day with a $90 profit you can say that you had a +8Rday the other way to count the Rs in a day is when you take small number of trades like 3-5 you just remember that you did 2R on this and 3R on that trade and you just sum it by heart
  7. no i think the ;Price=Bid-0.05;TIF needs to be ;Price=Ask+0.05;TIF
  8. this will sell 50% of your LONG position and set the stop to break-even point CXL ALLSYMB;ROUTE=LIMIT;Price=BID-0.05;Price=Round2;Share=Pos*.50;TIF=DAY;SELL=Send;ROUTE=STOP;StopType=Market;StopPrice=AvgCost;Share=Pos-share;TIF=DAY;SELL=SEND you might need to use it like this on demo account CXL ALLSYMB;ROUTE=SMRTL;Price=BID-0.05;Price=Round2;Share=Pos*.50;TIF=DAY;SELL=Send;ROUTE=STOP;StopType=Market;StopPrice=AvgCost;Share=Pos-share;TIF=DAY;SELL=SEND the part you struggle with is the ROUTE=STOP;StopType=Market;StopPrice=AvgCost;Share=Pos-share;TIF=DAY;SELL=SEND which is self-explanatory i think
  9. shorting on ssr is just replacing the price of bid to ask in the hotkey syntax
  10. you are not the first to think like this. but i must assure you that you are completely wrong. but i have good news for you as well because i already know what your problem is. you accept bigger losses than you take profits. that is the actual reason for you to go consistently down over the long term. you are trading without clear stop loss(risk) and target(reward). you think too much about the money and profits and hope for profit and cant believe the loss you are looking at. the day you start taking trades with the attitude - here i am risking these $50 to win these $100 because i can see the chance/setup- you will start to be break even and turn it eventually to profits. simple as that. think about it and work on it. if you struggle with it you need tight and tighter rules.
  11. you need more detailed rules like: 1. take 5min ORB, 15min ORB - now it is clear what you want to trade 2. after 3 trades evaluate - now it is clear you want to stop and think on what is next 3. take maximum another 3 trades as ABCD or VWAP bounce - now you know how you want to trade next. 4. max daily loss $30 or 3 red trades or target $60 stop trading- now you know when to stop trading
  12. it comes to your preference/need really what portability you need? it is a difference in durability needs if you need to travel with your laptop on airports etc or just move it between rooms at home. the first one would require solid metal body while the second would be fine even with plastic body then there is the battery life, if you need more than 8 hours it will me more expensive then screen size - subject to the portability above, for 17" you would need a big bag to travel then connectivity to peripherals - 2nd monitor for trading, USB accessories if you define these 4 aspects then you will find your ideal laptop easily.
